Best of luck with the first flights Rab. It should be fine if my smaller one is anything to go by.

Been tied up and didn't get to post this yet,the tom 3 flies and from what I can tell flies well.Saturday was less than ideal for the first flight as the winds where 10-17mph and kept swichting compas points!The tom broke ground at less than 2/3rds throttle in about 45 feet-no lack of power!There may be a rudder trim issue and more aileron throw is needed but all in all it seems fine.There is a short viedo I hope to post later.With the winds I called it short after about 2 min of flight time and dragged the right wing tip through the grass on landing when the wind shifted 45deg when I was a foot up.

Great stuff Rabidrue, I had no doubt it would be OK but it is nice to get the first one over. Looking forward to seeing photos/video.

rabidrue1, Thanks for the build. Did you use the same airfoil, or a different one? Also, what decalage did you use?

You mentioned, “There is a short video I hope to post later.”
Have you posted the video anywhere?. If so, what is the link?
Thanks,
John
