Default The Alchemy has flown!

Hi Guys,

Well, the Alchemy has flown. It was completed last Wednesday night prior to driving down to the Australian Masters and World Cup in Melbourne. Friday was the official practice day and that afternoon was the first flight of the Alchemy. The flight went very well with a click or two of up elevator trim, no aileron trim but a few clicks of rudder trim. This week Iíll be rechecking the thrust line to see whatís causing the rudder trim and also move the CG a bit further forward to correct a slight KE Pull to the belly. Apart from the KE and rudder trim, the model felt really good. The model now has 7 flights on it after the Comp. I hadnít flown at all since November last year and had just two P19 practice flights before the Comp. I finished 13th overall which was quite pleasing considering it was a new untrimmed model and my lack of practice.

Also, when one flys a model with a Mohawk, one needs to follow suit with the matching haircut... lol

Cheers,
Jason.
