have your maiden and the first few flights on calm sunny days so you can get the feel of the plane (small steps small problems big steps big problems) watch youtube so you can see how others fly theres then go fly yours and have a blast it is a great flying powered glider have fun and enjoy

Thanks for the tips Falcon. I tried setting up for full house, but couldnt wrap my head around the mixes. Ended up going with traditional setup with the flaps assigned to a slider switch for simplicity. I will also try and set up the aileron-rudder mix you suggested.

Tomorrow is the maiden, and will report back.

I totally agree, but that is the longest single sentence I have ever read, no punctuation anywhere!
