The 2nd Maiden Voyage of the 400mm Hun Hunter XVI
Well, finally got a halfway decent day with slow wind, so me and #1 Son went on down to the soccer field to put up the little P47, and for the most part, the flight went off without a hitch. I say for the most part because while it was a successful flight (flew it for about 7 or 8 minutes), that little plane, to say the least, is twitchy like you read about. All 4 hand launches were textbook...couldn't have been better, and after a few minutes I got the hang of not over-controlling the plane because it was so responsive...thinking it could use a tad bit of nose weight, maybe glue a nickel in the nose or something along those lines. Sonny Boy did shoot some video, but he was jumping around so much you can maybe see about 3 seconds of the plane flying in a 5 minute video, if we can get another good day tomorrow, we'll most likely go to the soccer field again...maybe bring along Wifey's Helicopter this time and try to shoot a steadier video.
