Glad to hear a successful maiden. Even after 30+ years, I still get "that feeling" everytime I fly a new plane for the first time.
(My shortest maiden this year was less than 30 seconds...a brand new Top Flite Contender, brought down by a faulty, brand new a Futaba S3114 servo )

All of my DF planes are a joy to fly. Bert does a great job from start to finish.

That graphic is cool, I would like to get a copy, thank you very much.

Sorry to hear about your maiden experience, last year I failed to double check the control surface operation on my great planes 540 and had the ailerons reversed... Lucky for me all that happened was a broken prop on a not so perfec landing.

I bought a Dynamic Foamy F-18 once and the thing never flew. This was COMPLETELY MY FAULT, as I didn't have the right motor ESC or battery to use really and was just trying to use what I had. I emailed or called for help and actually got a callback from the owners' wife to clarify some things and see if she could help me. I thought that was pretty damn cool

^ +1, couldn't agree more.

I've got 2 YF-23, XB-70, Concorde (70" version, absolutely beautiful in flight), and an SU-47 and F9F, (both winter kit builds).

All of their combo package components (motor, ESC, etc) are very reasonably priced, IMHO.
