Default Maiden flight.

Got a carl goldberg 400 park flyer and put a inrunner 480 series 6(I believe that's the one). A friend flew it for me and I hand launched it. With a 3cell 2100 lipo it jumped out of my hand and climbed fast. He trimmed it up and then I took it and let me tell you that is one fast plane. He guessed it topped out at 55mph and it glided like a dream. We did loops and rolls and it was fast and clean. We flew about 40 min. on the first battery and landed a few times and not one problem came up. This is my second goldberg arf and I tell you he builds a great plane.

Sounds like the kind of maiden flight we would love to have. Good for you..
I can't believe your battery lasted for 40 minutes.

I kept it at half throttle or less the whole time.
But I kept my smile for a loooooong time afterwords.
