Put Maiden flight on a friends Falcon Orange/Black on Sunday. What a beauty. A few clicks of up & a few right and she flew straight as a die.
Very smooth & easy to see. Once the wheels were up so the speed rose quickly.
Simjet 1200 18lbs thrust turbine as power plant.
Landing was a no drama event stayed smooth & stable right down to wheels contact.
Could not do a second flight due to failure of electric starter motor in the turbine bullet.[:@]
Back out tonight/evening. New 280BB supplied by Wren ( Excellent service from them ordered late Tuesday & arrived following day )
Well done to Sarah & team.
Put three flights on the Falcon, each one pushing the envelope a bit more each time.
Used full throttle for the first time going upwards, it gets very small very quickly with 18lbs of thrust.
Big loops were easy,round & smooth, inverted flight needed a push on the elevator for level flight ( that's how I like it ) rolls were as fast or slow as you like. Reversals & any other Jet like manovre were done with ease.
In summary what a great aeroplane.
My friend & owner was buddied up so we had at least half a flight each. It looks so gracefull in flight, smooth & precise.
It's a keeper.
All the best,
