Maiden went off without a hitch, I had a couple of flights and then decided to move the G of G back a little so I moved the battery towards the back about ĹĒ which moved the C of G about the same .. I started at 33% and now it is at about 40% from the front of the wing Ö the wing chord measures 165mm (with a balsa leading edge) and I now have the C of G set at 65mm from the leading edge

It would not do a loop (even with full rates) after I moved the C of G back it did a nice loop on full rates, roll wasnít too bad, about the same as the Polaris (never tried it on full rates)

Video was taken with my NEW #16 cam on my hat, (hadnít changed the date Ö have now) it isnít too bad but would have liked to have done some low slow passes but was pretty nervous so didnít attempt this on the first flight, maybe another day.


a little better quality video
