Time to really learn to fly a wing, new foam

I need to build confidence in flying wings before I let the iNav wing do its thing.
So ordered a cheap wing called the Rainbow Wing from GearBest, a lightweight 800mm wing.
Arrived on Thursday and by Saturday morning, it's ready for its maiden.
178 grams before battery, balancing with a no-name 1000mAh 3s 25C lipo making a flying weight of 215 grams. Static thrust...450 grams so it's certainly has the power :)
Decided to put the ESC on the top so it has plenty of cooling.
The weather this evening is looking okay'ish for its first flight.

Wow! Best maiden yet!!!!! Flew great from the get go, needed to add a tiny bit more reflex and after that it was all fun!!!
Did about eight or nine flights on my two 1000mAh 3S LiPos and my one 850mAh 3S Lipo. The lowest any of the batteries was brought down to was 56%.
This I can tell will be a regular flyer for me.
