Maiden flight of my sailplane yesterday, just as the breeze was starting to pick up. I quite pleased with this plane. Didn't realize how much the wings can flex when load is applied. The motor isnt the strongest and I nearly tip stalled a couple of times. (I think it needs a little more nose weight) but it climbs ok and is fun to fly. I was too scared to take it way up. I will next time and try cutting power to see how if glides. Had my keychain cam on the inboard wing looking out. Not bad.

Congratulations on your maiden flight, P51. It's very exciting to see your new pride and joy take to the blue. Yes, get up high and turn that darned motor off and see how she does.
