1/3 scale Flybaby maiden

Have spent months building all the parts, hacksaw, file, bandsaw glue, paint, you know what I mean. Sure feels good to see it lift off even if only briefly. Not quite ready yet but a guy has to be cautious.

Thanks to "Taildragger" who took this shot.

Ever since I learned to fly better, I've had a lot less radio problems!

Congrats on your maiden!!!! I have only built ARF's and still get choked on a maiden flight, can't imagine what it's like to start from scratch and do the same thing!!!!

Happy wife, happy life

Well, if that's the case you have not really built yet - just assembled and you've deprived yourself of the supreme, ultimate joy of aeromodelling when your very own, built by your very own hands, from nothing but raw parts, flying machine takes to the air and successfully flies.

There is absolutely nothing like it.
