Thanks for sharing!
I also brought one of the first ones well over a year ago and hope to fly it soon. I was worried about the tailpipe diameter and strength with my Jetcat RX100 setup, but I see others are using 100 size engines. Any issues with yours thus far?

No all ok but there is a bit more smoke on shutdown than with bigger(and longer) pipe I have on MB339.
but in air all ok.
I fly on diesel, on kero there is no smoke.


added some cheap LEDs (2$ piece, generic 1W)

What about the landing lights are they included in the kit or you have installed them yourself?

Nice and bravo for maiden especially under that cold brrr.

Lower your flaps even more, you can safely go till vertically down, I fli like that but even 70 will get you slower than you had in this video.
wish you many more flights!


here are mine from today, 6 flights

Am have trouble getting my plane balance. The CG in the manual calls for 184mm from the leading edge.
Is this correct?

Thanks
