Default Avistar maiden Flight! (Sort Of)

Well, My Avistar finally left the ground today....
An experienced pilot took it off, flew around for a few minutes, trimmed it out and then handed me the control.
I flew around making basic circles for about 10 minutes and then handed control back.... He brought it in for a perfect landing. Then we made adjustments on the plane so the trims were neutral on the TX.
I am meeting him Friday morning.. he is bringing a buddy box, and I will bring the camera.

Today's Report: Flies like its on rails; very stable.

Hi I am new to flying too, I just started a couple months ago. I have an avistar too. Of course I don't have anything to compare it to but it is a very nice, fun plane to fly I have already soloed on mine. Hope you do as well as I have with mine.

Hey Tony......

I actually had to order them... the LHS did not have those sizes in stock.

Will you be there on Friday?
