Default First Flight

Today, I just flew RC for the first time this morning. Everything went well and my airplane is still perfectly intact. Except there were some near scares. The engine died while in flight, near the Sun, some round loops, wind, and hard landings. Otherwise, everything went fine. We flew the airplane three times. I hope to fly this weekend .

That's great to hear.
Wait to see how excited you'll be with your first good landing and
when you cut the chord.

congrats! Good to hear you got it flying. Dead sticks aren't that bigger deal realy unless you're flying a plane that glides like a brick.
Have fun!
