The Kansas winds stopped howling for the first time in a month and I flew the new plane 4 flights. The VVRC 20 pulled the plane with authority at full power and idled down well for landing. The plane has a beautiful presence in the air. The CG as specified in the manual is very nose heavy. I moved the 1600 mah LiFe back from under the tank to the back of the wing and it helped a little, but still nose heavy. Landings are very nice....full flaps and 1/4 throttle and fly it down to the runway and then reduce power and round out for a nice wheel landing just like the real deal. The EFlight landing gear seem to be a winner.
