In the video you can see how I lifted the model way too early. I promise I'll never do it again.

In the beginning the gear door service lever was unintentionally in service position and thus the gear doors were open. However, the lever was switched to normal position before take off.

The video is very raw footage but watching it is optional. The model and the maiden flight are the most important matters in this context, not the video taken of them.

After dialing in 40% expo to the aileron control and 20% to the elevator the Ju became a lot more stabile.

It is easy to fly now and even easier to land. Flaps down, a couple of clicks of throtte and the Junkers descends beautifully to a smooth landing.

However, this model is not a self correcting trainer type. You have to fly it all the time. I wonder if any warbird flies itself.

On takeoffs I still have a lot to learn. At first it veers to the left and I have to keep it straight with right rudder. Then suddenly the rudder becames more effective and the model begins to go to the right. After this phenomenon the start run develops to a wiggly one. I hope to be able to control the takeoffs better in the future.
