Maiden Micro PT 19 E Stick April 12 2013

Maiden Micro PT 19 E Stick April 12 2013

Flying weight 6 oz.

Control surface throws
(+ up / - down)
Aileron +/- 3/16 inch
Elevator +/- 3/16 inch
Rudder +/- 1/4 inch

Balanced at 1 3/4 inch from leading edge.

WOW!
ROG off of short grass field.
Quick climb out.
Very sensitive responsive on ailerons and elevator.
Nice coordinated turns using rudder.

While trimming aircraft prop saver came off with prop and I lost all thrust. Airplane slowed and I lowered the nose to keep the airspeed up to land for landing. Hard landing cracked fuselage at front and rear bulkheads. Also horizontal stab came loose. Spent 15 minutes to repair.

Second flight

Reduced control surface throws.
(+ up / - down)
Aileron +/- 1/8 inch
Elevator +/- 1/8 inch
Rudder +/- 1/4 inch (no change on rudder)

Again ROG off of short grass field.
Quick climb out.
Still very quick responsive on ailerons and elevator
Nice coordinated turns using rudder.
Much smoother flight.

BEC voltage cut off began to slow motor as designed. Nice glide slope. Floats just a bit. Smooth touch down. Did not flip on the short grass!

Over all flight opinion.
I am an average Sunday flyer. No great aerobatic or 3D skills tho I can do some very sloppy ones!

This airplane is FUN! Kept me on my toes first 2 flights. It performs well! Next flight I think I will move the CG forward 1/8 inch and see how much stability this will add for Sunday flying.
