I finally finished piecing the Aquila together and managed to get it flying today. There was no wind and the plane was so smooth and easy to trim it was pretty astounding. It launched easily at less than half throttle and climbed smoothly for about 10-15 seconds of power and then just floated...

This was the first time I've flown anything this big and was quickly impressed at how much better a larger plane flies. The landings were pretty easy even without the spoilers (working on that) and I was able to fly it low and slow and not stall once...

I'll try and get the onboard camera on it the next few flights and will be looking forward to getting that video on here...
