JackS said Davenport was ripping yesterday, lift was everywhere including the lift zone. Checked the weather and the pattern looks pretty close to the same for today.

I have the Acacia 3 (view my build thread) ready to rip... anyone want to film the maiden and/or help me launch?

I will.
Just drive down here!

Good luck with the maiden, Steve.

CG conservative?
Elevator throw conservative on low?
Batteries cycled?
Range check OK?

Go, Go, Go!

Thanks for the encouragement guys! I'm adding my AMA number right now to the wing in small prism decals... everything is cycled and triple checked... gotta love the anticipation.

Dom: Thanks for the reminder - yeah, I have low settings on the elevator low rate... of course higher are available "just in case"

Bet it was the 1st ever maiden while 3 full scale guys took off from the runway at Davenport. Hey no pressure Steve.... brand new ship, 1st flight, hey look, there's 3 airplanes coming down the runway

He handled it well - awesome day at Davenport.
