First Flight


Well the weather was 73 F and nearly zero wind, perfect for a Powerhouse 33

flight !

Flew out of my hand , takes no power at all to fly... Glide is superb... control is excellent... balance is very slightly tail heavy. I just need to move the battery slightly more forward....

Attached is a link to my cell video... "thrilling" to film and fly haha..... ... you must log into facebook to view for now...

Al , it's hard to describe such a floating, quiet gentle model as this.... but you already know.

it takes just above zero throttle to sustain..... glide is just superb.... Berkeley Bill knew how to pick them and Dick Korda sure knew how to design them....

it did catch slight lift on it's own but I flew nearly all under power....

after 20 minutes I brought it down for a nice landing..... i'm guessing it would fly well over an hour under low power......

Best Regards,

Jeff
