Many thanks to all who helped in the "Speed controller hell" thread.
I have now had the first flight, all went very well. I have pulled off a takeoff, flight and a landing without any damage to the aircraft. (very shocked that it is still in one piece)
It managed to climb out to about 30 feet or so, then I got it into a right turn and landed again, not too far from from where I started.
Very happy as it was really my first proper flight too (other than hops and me controlling it then handing it back over to my Father to land)
One day I hope to finish and then fly the 1/3 scale Sopwith Camel that my Father made and I now have. (It needs the wings and tail feathers made and covered, as well as the new Zenoah 62cc engine started for the first time.)
No doubt I will bother you all on here with more daft questions as I start out on the steep learning curve that is ahead.
