I've just spent the last few hours absorbed by this thread, its surprising that this jet hasn't been more widely modelled.

Did you every manage to maiden your meteor Roy ? Any videos ?

Hi Jim
Yep we managed to maiden the meteor, unfortunately it didn't end well.
The takeoff was good with plenty of power on hand and very little trim needed, but a little overly sensitive in roll.

On the down side I learnt an important lesson, never maiden a new model to de-stress when tiered after a hard day at work. My reaction were always behind the model.

The end result was I park the model in the out field after a momentary lost of orientation on the landing circuit. Repairs are well under way so shouldn't be long before she ready to fly once more.
