It flies slow.
Took it up for maiden yesterday, four more flights today.
No bad habits. Could have made the ailerons bigger.
I am happy with the results.

10 minute flights without cutoff. Estimating I can get 20-30.

It is real easy to reconfigure. I can even reposition the wings. They are held on with wire ties.
