SWISS DART Maiden flight
I just maiden flew my SWISS DART today on beautiful and calm lake of Zürich.
Actually I intended to do some highspeed gliding on the ski first, but there was a little wave and hopp she got airborne. Well, therefore I continued and flew a few circuits. The CG seemed to be perfectly balanced but response to the elevator was a bit too strong. For the second flight I just added some expo (40%) on the elevator and she behaved very smoothly thereafter. Quick subsequent rolls however always ended in some murky manouver, most probably caused by the thrust vector. Alltogether she is fun to fly, and I hope we will have a lot of fun on the lake together.
And there she sits on the water (even after the maiden flight
