Thanks Rotadrill!

Steve the smile is still beaming on my face, sorry didn't manage to meet at the NATS , hope all is well now,

Chris , Mr. E loves it, I just hope I can eventually be able to fly her as good as he does.

Hi Chas I did mention about making a couple of changes, but Rich says it needs nothing done to it, so if he is happy so I'm I

Joe , thanks! Nice to meet up with you at NATS and meet your mate Palio, was very pleased when he said he had said he had seen the benson on youtube and was very impressed, even asked me about what size pilot he should have in his gyro's

Thanks Tim, look forward to seeing you again at next meeting, hopefully I'll be home for one

I think Chris summed the Benson up with the words stable and pussycat, it is just a delight to fly and a huge credit to its creator........after a couple of flights when my thumbs stop shaking!

Rich
The answer to the big question is yes Cali got his hands on the sticks and felt that the sensitivity of the controls needed turning up a tad for his liking. Unfortunately due to a lack of another suitable tranny and lead we were having to play "pass the transmitter".......not ideal with such a magnificent model so decided to halt further fine tuning pending the arrival of some more hardware! But watch this space it's going to get sorted

Cheers
Rich
