Twin engine Multiplex Fox Maiden flight

Yay it flies (Well)
Did the maiden in less than ideal conditions. The wind was 10-15mph and gusting quite a bit. The launch was at fairly low throttle and opened it to around 75% in the vertical climb. It has a surprising turn of speed, and accelerates well from the hover to too far to see well very quickly. The glide is nothing special but controlable and is better with a little power to keep wind on the elevator. Sorry about the poor video..best I've got
All in all...Well happy

Adrianh,

Nice flying and gutsy too. I would not fly a small plane in that kind of wind, no way. That little fox is fast too, I was shocked to see how quickly she shot by you.

TFS

Hi John,
It is a nippy little thing at full power. It does cruise around nicely at 30% throttle and has a nice beat from the motors/props. The downside is it will flick if slowed too much, but fly within the flight envelope then she's fine.
