Congratulations Phillip. It's been a long build of a great looking airplane and it's great to read that it has come to a successful conclusion.

Re the video link: It works for you because it takes you to your own account, but it doesn't work for anyone else.

Phil, I have been with you on this thread from the beginning! This has been a fascinating journey and I am thrilled for you that your hard work and determination have been so richly rewarded. You have built a beautiful work of art that looks fantastic both on the ground and in the air. Well done mate!

Just Beautiful!! It's supposed to be somewhat unstable to fly scale-like. Some manual or programmed aileron/rudder mix, transmitter permitting, might help smooth out turns. It does quite well on grass.

Thanks guys, You really know how to stroke a builder! She is not a stable plane, doesn't recover on her own from nuances of the breeze. So sensitive to rudder input, I'm not going to attempt an aileron rudder mix. I want to get very good at manual mixing.
