Hard to say, J. 80% chance of T-storms for Thursday, but it's supposed to clear up by Sat.

You might have to be patient a little while longer.

BTW, page 23 had the under wing pictures with the CG crosses marked but they were for the non-scale wing.

Madien was text book perfect 2 clicks of left.we made the fight short.it was a new 4000 4s, CN greased the landing.2nd flight was with a 4s 5000, CN rung it out . It flies nust like the real one ,turns on a dime.the landing got a abit slow, and it dropped in hard.I only had 2 screws holding the ggear,so it tore out,it was a easy fix due to the breakaway plates.we are going to decrease the flap angle,for less drag.Gary got some vid.but his camp got trashed by a hail storm.

Great news A/S and well done to you and the team. There is nothing more conclusive for a new models launch than a successful test flight.

Congrats! I know all about having too much flap, I stalled my Boogie Hawk on landing like that. I'm looking forward to seeing the flight video!
