Default Don Juan II

Just got back from the field this morning after a successful first flight, it was a bit windy but at least I now know that I built a model that will fly! Tomorrow the winds are forecast to be better so I'll give it another go then. Power is a new O.S. .65 which seems to run good and the model has fixed gear so it will be SPA legal, weight came in at 6.25 lbs without fuel.
I hope to get it dialed in so I can attend the Knoxville SPA contest and get my feet wet flying novice class.
I just enjoy building and wanted a model that was not something that you see everyday at the field, that wing was a challenge to build but I think I got it straight because it required no aileron trim first time out. Now I just need to learn how to fly the novice routine
