RE-Maiden flight - FT Corsair Master Series

So the original maiden flight yielded and almost uncontrollable squirrely plane, today was completely different.

I replaced the elevator servo with a new one. I bought a different brand servo based on recommendations I found elsewhere online and from the experienced folks here. Also, I dialed in 30% expo for all three controls.

After 5 minutes and a little trim, I was thoroughly impressed with how easily the Corsair flew. Truly, this plane flies just as well as many trainers. Although I decided to just keep it mellow and only one flight, I had a blast. The landing was smooth and soft. I'd definitely recommend the FT Corsair to anyone that has the skills to build it! Now it's time for some paint and decals.

Always happy to see a successful maiden. I maidened my friend's MS Corsair for him and fully expected it to be a hassle. Nope! Was almost boring how easy it was. Probably the easiest warbird I've ever flown.

It's always been on my list of airplanes I'll build if the stars align and I have no planes to fix and am not already building something else because I forgot about it!
