6 flights on my FMS T28 v2. Stock setup 2s 1300 mah 30 c batteries
This plane is really nice to fly in minimal wind.
Touch n goes are so easy, it's not even funny!
I'm going to try and get some video next time out.

Congrats!

My maiden didn't go as well since I missed my 6' wide runway, ran into the grass, and snapped the thin plastic on the nose gear pivot - what a hairbrained design!!!

Hand launched flights thereafter were just marvelous using both 2S and 3S (wow!!), along with a Lemon stabilized receiver. That little Lemon gem is amazing in how well it keeps the bird tracking down the runway (did several hi speed taxi test before losing the nose gear). Also helps the hand launches, and being able to tune stabilization down in flight was great in doing overspeed 3S passes, where the ailerons started to work overtime!

Sorry to hear about the nosewheel on maiden .
Looking over the model when I got it I was concerned about the nosewheel,luckily it's been holding up.
Landings have been sweet though.
