Finally got around to flying the maiden flight for my F-86 Sabre with a 50mm EDF. Only issue was the CG. The distance between nose heavy and tail heavy is very small. Had the 3s battery in the nose and obviously it was nose heavy since I had to keep pulling back on the stick and had the trim all the way back. Gonna reconfigure and launch it again today. All in all not too bad.

Looks like a ton of fun!!!
I wish I could build a plane that looks that good!

if you build another one at some point, keep this video in mind. It will help you come a little closer to the CG on the maiden, when stakes are higher.
