The weather was perfect, a flat calm autumn morning, and the Wulf flew exceptionally well with the 100A Plush ESC on 5S. The first maiden required zero trim while this time around it required a lot of down trim and right aileron. I did rush the build the night before so it probably wasn't perfect but once trimmed there were no issues.
I don't think I've ever been so nervous after the last mishap and the heart was racing during that first flight thinking what if the electrics go again. After 4 flights I called it a morning and all was in tact and left the park a happy chappy. First landing I got the 190 bounce but after that, with some speed and a nice run out the next 3 were silky smooth landings.
It is a great flying plane, it just has real presence in the air, and is a worthy addition to the hangar for anyone sitting on the fence if they're not sure they should make the investment. I made 5 min flights, with a mixture of throttle management, but most was just easy going with the occasional speed pass and the cells came down with 3.96v on average. It has great climb, speedy roll on high rates, and can fly inverted very well.
The FW-190 is a keeper.
