Finishing / In Flight
The glider made is maiden flight before the final painting !
After the successful first flight, time has come to put a bit of paint on the glider !
I have choose the D-7083 paint scheme.. Keep it simple !... Well, not that simple ! As the paint I have choose totally messed up ! of work (around a week !) to get it almost right !
Looking good only from a distance !
But with a bit of patience, and the help from Anthony from RubberPrintDesign (stickers, masks..) here is the result !
Well, the first flight was ideal ! Like in a magazine, the glider went straight, just have to put a bit of up at the elevator due to my CofG. That was a windy day, with lots of turbulences... Not a big problem, but the glider is really light ! We guess it's around 6kgs (my Lo100, same size, it's 10 - 11kgs !). The glider don't want to land !
Anyway, that's a great flyer, everything is responding well despite the CofG being a bit forward. Well, very happy !
And bonus, here is a video of the first flight ! Enjoy !!
As a reminder and if you are interested to build one, the short kit is now available at http://www.islandmodels.ie !
