Ok got the maiden in yesterday. I will say this plane is heavy and I admit I had a pucker factor of 15 getting ready to fly it, as a reminder my pucker factor only goes as high as 10 so.. She took off with ease and I needed to give her just a few clicks of down trim and she was flying like a champ. She is pretty quick as well. I flew at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle for most of the flight and she has plenty of power. Tried the flaps and at first I noticed no change but the second time around she slowed way down. In fact she came in so slow I was not sure what to do and after the first landing it became clear that this is the most sturdy plane I have in my hanger. Love this plane so far if I can keep in one piece.
