Default C4F's new F-18 maiden

Last Christmas I got a F-18 from my girlfriends kids.

Done in the classic Blue Angels colors! #3

This one is hand launced belly lander.

This morning I got it assembled and ready for maiden flight.

The winds were moderate but gusty making for a interesting lauch and landings.

Strong gusts caused 360 spins and an occasional dive.

CG was ok, The streamers added stability in flight.

Single control line used as an altitude limiter.
