I placed a Mobius mini camera in the nose turret of my B24 and flew around the field a bit.

A4 Maiden Flight

I flew the A4 Skyhawk for the first time. It went better than I expected.

Thx! I have to admit I was nervous about this one. The control surfaces deflections/rates are all dialed way back, and it was still very responsive. Did you notice when I did the loop, the initial elevator response was a bit drastic? This might be the first or second time I have flown a jet with all of the ordinance attached to the wing too. I didn't know what differences to expect from the drag but didn't notice anything odd and they all stayed attached. My concern about carrying the full load out is that since they are held on with magnets, if stuff drops from only one wing for any reason, how destabilizing would that feel in flight? I can't jettison the other tank in flight manually. Have you experienced any flight characteristics changing connected to the ordinance load or losing a left or right drop tank in flight?

The F4 is next...
