Default PZ UM P-40 maiden...!

Beautiful morning. ZERO winds! Pulled out the P-40, checked the controls, and set it on a table i use for a runway...took 3 tries to get it airborne, when i did, it felt very mushy, just kinda floppin all over the place...so i brought 'er in and made some adjustments, trim, throws, etc, and it got much better! Its not a bad little plane....i just have to remember that it aint no Pole Cat, Sukhoi, or Beast!! A little more power would be nice, but all in all its a fun plane! I did have an audience...several San Hill Cranes (Big Birds) decided to stand next to me and watched the show! Also had some seagulls follow my t-28 in formation!!

That sounds like fun!

I got to see my buddy fly his the other night and it was quite the show. It included a crash after he put it through its paces. I am glad I caught it all on video!

Very cool video. Those cranes are hilarious too. We have some that come into our backyard daily and will walk right up to the door wall until they get your attention to give them a snack. They love crackers. Some times they will take them right out of our hands.

Thank guys and I too have lots of birds that love my planes (some hate them too, however).

Those cranes look pretty dang cool though!
