Default Highlander First Flight

I'm just sitting here typing one handed while the goop dries on the horizontal stab of my hignlander. Do some basic hand tosses to get the clevises set so straight and level flight needs no trim. When she's ready to hi start, have an experiences stick run the radio and trim it out to glide for you.
These planes are pretty heavy compared to balsa and need to fly kind of quick for a newby. A little borrowed stick time on someones' Gentle Lady is a REALLY good idea before you spend too much time on that squirlley Highlander.
The are great if you are learning on a slope hill, but balsa is a lot easier to learn therma with. IMHO
