Default Ultra Sport/Jett .90 Maiden "Pictures"

Well I avenged the F-20 today. Got the plane dialed in. Put some air in the retracts. Rolled on down the runway and up it went. Made a few trimming laps with the gear down, then a couple more with them up and was time to open it up. Went real good however I had 20% "expo" in their by accident and was driving me crazy. Don't like "expo."

So I was crusing around about 3/4 throttle, things were looking good and decided to land. Went to throttle back and it didn't[X(] My cheese was definitely in the wind. Nothing like zipping around at 100mph with a stuck throttle. So I climbed up a bit and waited forever for that engine to quit. Got lucky that it stopped in the right area and brought it right in.

It was a minor thing with the linkage and fixed it right their and went up again to redeem myself and also removed the "expo". Good flight overall. Darn thing is like a solid missle. Was uneasy about landing because I didn't know how good it would slow down but it was fine. Nothing like the sound of the Jett engines

Usually idle and landing speed isn't a big issue with the 90L. Mine tends to idle down very nicely.
