thanks gun, its alot like flying a big cadilac. really smooth...really easy. my dad did the take off on this flight, was his first takeoff with this model. as you can see, with partial flap, takeoffs are also really smooth. landings are also really sweet with full flap..i was off the power all the way from before the final turn...it was a steep apraoch, as the flight had gone long as i was doing passes for a fellow taking pics...so i needed to get it down....wasnt the pretiest landing, but it did the job.

thanks guys ...these Falcons were born to fly edf .....i think Clay "Racer 1" was the first to slap a dynamax on one of these. and i have to agree with Brent it is like a big ole Caddy with a 500 cu in. motor one of the smoothest tracking planes i have flown.the landing in the vid was in a pretty good cross wind . the approch with full flaps is really steep but with power off and flaps it just settles right in when you start to flare the plane is in ground effects.looks easy ....im going to land it next time .i just don't have time to fix it so i let Brent take that one ...plus once you give him the TX ....you can forget about getting it back

Isn't that the truth!? They even rub it in by having an ice cream truck at the field.

Must be nice to fly all year round. Nice conversion AS, thanks for sharing your progress!
