I thought it flew just as great as it looks sitting still! Simply beautiful airframe. You will have it dialed in in no time. It was just a pleasure to watch your maiden flight on "The Best Flying Day Of The Year"!

If you haven't already double check your roll / lateral balance, if it is off slightly it maybe contributing to wing drop / tip stall.

Guys, if it was the best fly day of the year, how come we dont have any pics or videos? Everyone too busy flying? I would love to see something from the day if anyone has something.

I can only speak for myself. No time for pics, vid, or even a sketch, I was way too busy flyin and smilin ear to ear

The only pics I needed were unforgetable mental images of PAU's, Aeroworks, Supercubs, Crackyaks, EXP's, Quadcopters & Profile Yaks 3d flying on completely windless, prefect seventy degree, orange sunseting skys.

Thanks Lee, that's a great suggestion, I've been bitten by lateral balance once before. I'll check it tonight.

geez, the ice line has just gone down the tubes!
sad really.

On a happy note, we just got back from the dealer with our new 2012 Expedition EL (extended length) so now I have a plane hauler again.

yay!!!

That should do the job well. A 4 pistol case has room for two radios.
