Maiden Flight of my FT "Old Fogey"

#1
It was too windy for this slow flyer it climbed every time the nose was in the wind! Still should be a nice flyer when the winds are calm! this plane had a NTM 1200 kv motor with a 1300mA battery and tried a 9X6SF and 10X4.7SF props.:p

Wow! Nice job in that wind! It looked like the first flight was a bit tail heavy, even factoring the wind in.
Regardless, I loved the video!

Thanx! I was extra careful to get the CG just slightly nose heavy (could have gone a little more), but the wind was about 20MPH, and this plane is so "floaty" it was trying to lift out of my brothers hand before launch. I'm anxious to try again when the winds are light!
