From my post yesterday in the Habu thread
Good luck with the maiden, don't worry, she's a pussycat, even at the recommended high rates. It carries energy well and takes up a bit of room to final stall onto the runway, so start shooting landings after the first couple minutes of trimming to get used to it. It's more of a matter of knowing what to look for on the downwind to judge where she'll land. It can tip stall in the slowest turns, so you want a straight approach to settle in the runway, as she can roll quite a bit after touchdown with any real speed. I like to bleed speed off in the final base turn, even if I have to let it run a little wide to pull a small tight s then let the approach come in fully straight on.
Once you get used to it you can set it down right before where you're standing and watch it run by on the mains and set down gently on the nose.
Other then shooting landings, general flight is the same as any other sport plane. For an EDF, it doesn't lag much to throttle inputs. And it's no slouch in high g turns, it seems to hold momentum better when turning and burning then just making straight runs.
