Angry Test Flight of a FX-79 Buffalo (grumpy icon not intended)

A flying buddy bought a FX-79 and got me to maiden it for him. I fitted a Bigaole BG6 AP with RTH on it for him so if he loses sight of it or gets disorientated, he just needs to flick a switch and it will come home.

It is a very nice wing to fly with no bad vices.

I can never get a video to show in Wattflyer? Only ever a link. Does it not accept Vimeo links?
Never have a problem in RCG.

It doesn't look like we can insert Vemo videos with this software. Sorry about that Panther!
Enjoyed watching the video though!

Thanks Don... I sort of guessed that to be the case. I wonder what the difference is.

Had another flight on Saturday It was gusting but that didn't worry this thing at all. It does very slow rolls but I guess it could be tightened up a bit.
We also engaged the motor braking and it made a huge difference to the glide.
It is a very enjoyable wing to fly. Hank inherited some unused FPV gear so we might install that for him soon. Also need to drop a camera into it.

I now own this wing as in another post where it was 'destroyed' and rebirthed.
I had quite a few flights with it today and it is flying real sweet.
