    Brian Taylor Hawker Typhoon - First Maiden Attempt

    Had the first attempt of the Hawker Typhoon first flight. As you can see from the video it was not the most successful maiden attempt. Luckily its a relatively easy fix. I hope to get up in the air by Christmas.

    Looks like it tracked badly before it even got enough speed to take off. Better steering required to keep it on the short stuff.

    I'd also say underpowered, unless it was a half hearted take off attempt. On a first flight, full power, positive rate of climb, get some air under it and then sort it out at a safe height.
    The Typhoon looks good in the video, I hope that it works out for you in the end
