Skyfly semi-maiden

Hey guys. I finally got out and got to a decent sized field to fly my skyfly in for more than 2 minutes. Weather was beautiful yesterday, winds around 10 mph, which is amazing for Rochester. Headed out, gave it a toss, and let it go for a bit. I started losing elevator control throughout the flight though, so after about 8 minutes or so I ended up getting it in close and 3-pointing it for a landing. The screw on the elevator surface that holds the control line was so loose it came off in my hands when I was looking at it.

Aside from that, it was great being out there. Hopefully I'll be getting a battery today and getting out with my other plane, the Soareasy.

I have a skyfly as well and it did not seem to like the 7 mph wind I flew it in the other day.
