so excited! i have been logging lots of hours on the phoenix-4 flight sim in prep for my first flight of my first ever r/c plane. its the parkzone ultra-micro t-28. it was purchased by my father as a gift to help get me into the hobby. he used to fly when younger. on saturday i went to a large open field with my spektrum dx6i, 6 charged lipos and my courage.
it was not ideal wind at all. gusty but clear skies. she was up in 6 feet to my amazement.
the sim training was amazingly helpful. i battled the wind for 4.5 flights before i figurd i better call it because of wind. she flew great! i am in love. i have never flown any r/c plane and had realized this was not the ideal plane AFTER purchase.
no crashes. take offs from hard dirt and landed in tall grass. i dont have the confidence yet for hard surface landings. with calm wind maybe.
just wanted to say how excited i am to officially be a r/c pilot! I AM ALLREADY TOTALLY ADDICTED! now i want to master this little guy so i can get the bigger version t-28! my father flew them in the navy so it has a special meaning for me. glad to be aboard. walt
