On saturday 21 February the Mach 1 made his maiden flight at Valkenburg Airport in the Netherlands, runway 34.
The Mach 1 starts like a rocket. I had to trim down the plane. Then it flies very sweet.
I got the control throws from Mike Mueller, he was the flying buddy of Norm Page in the early seventies. Very nice to talk with him about the Mach 1.
The control throws I got from Mike were perfect !
I fly some rolls, half reverse cuban eight, inverted flight etc. The Mach 1 flies very great.

After the maiden flight I decided to change the engine downthrust, of the engine, the YS FZ110 is very powerfull. The setting of 0 from the original plan is maybe ok for a twostroke engine. For a fourstroke it needs some downthrust.

When a have more information about the second flight I will post them here.

Kind regards,
