Tower Hobbies Sport EP ARF Build Review and Maiden

I bought the Tower Hobbies Sport during a sale in August as a Christmas present from the family to me . It sat in the box for 5 months as I waited for Christmas. Well, the day finally came, so I got the plane built and flew the maiden. The build review goes through the issues I faced assembling this ARF and calls out the strengths of the plane as well. Overall, it was a pleasant build experience with a few minor challenges.

The maiden flight was nice and boring. The plane lifted off the ground with no drama, took a few clicks of trim and flew like an old friend. Sink rate on final off power was gradual and easy. As the plane approached the runway, just a slight flare and it settled on the mains and coasted down the runway. Super simple airplane to fly. Stable and predictable, excellent orientation markings, easy takeoffs and landings. I know I'll be taking this plane to the field often.
