Default Northstar finally flies

Finally got my Northstar flying. Took six months from start to first flight, too many lazy winter nights and too many Ohio storms. Had it out in 2 foot swells yesterday and it handled like a champ. Powered it with a GMS .47, 10X7 APC prop. Plenty of power. Took about 12 ounces of nose weight to balance, all up weight is between 5.5 and 6 pounds. Unbelievable performance!!
