... Maiden flight was successful , my cg is abit further upfront have about 7 clicks up elevator to fly level ** but is ok for the first maiden flight , later will get the battery pack moving back !
Aileron just 3 clicks left , ....

For Flaps mixing , i would say just little to no mix at all at first stage flaps and full flaps ... i use 3 flights mode for my Predator ; normal flight / 1st flap / Full flap .
As i goes tru my radio setting : Condition1 (normal flight) + 7 clicks #up elevator#
Condition2 (1st flap) + 8 clicks
Condition3 (Full flap) + 9 clicks

well , this is my first full composite 2,2m sport jet and i'm impress with the flight performance and build quality , would like to thank Tony for making the custom scheme for me

huisson2005,

Congratulations on your mainden. It looks like you can slow the predator pretty much and it also seems that you did not even have to put the brakes on if I am not mistaken. Could you please elaborate more on the handling at slow speed and landing?

Thanks in advance,
Regards

Well to my surprise it handle low speed that well .... offcause * not to slow* that would stall the plane !! ... just keep some air speed .

I just fly it about 40% throttle maybe less with full flaps .... on approched landing , when i bang the corner i just throttle down all the way , .... just keep the hose down abit to let it glide in the runway ...
.final touch down , just abit up elevator to keep the nose up to slow the plane down .... it can land that slow lol ...

yes , i didnt use the brakes after landed , it was slowing down already .... !

Thank you for the info!!! Reason for asking is that we have a rather short runway about 120 meters paved with unforgiving run offs all around. No room for mistakes!!

Predator great flying sport jet. The color is vibrant and visible. The landing gears are strong. I am still getting used to it; however, the CQ is a bit nose heavy per manual and making some adjusting this. I am happy so far. I wanted something smaller and easily to transport for days when the air field is busy.
