Flew like a bird. The canards gave me new confidence in flying. So very happy. Now for the canopy

Good to hear, also glad you knew to reverse the elevator since I forgot to mention it.

yeah, well done !

everyone seems to have this weird idea that canards don't fly like any other aeroplane, just because they look strange

as they say "build it, and they will fly..."

now for some video ??

Very short clip of 2nd flight. This plane is very predictable and very easy to control.

Anyone interested in the plans for this bird? It's self correcting and so easy to handle. Most predictable plane I have ever flown. Glides perfectly from a few hundred feet.

Congrats!
Next, all kinds of funky variations on the theme are fun to experiment with, if you're interested. Lots of them right here on this site.
