1st flight ever..........success

Just took my 1st 3 flights ever on a fixed wing. Did some hovering around with heli's for a while and a few flights on the sim for fun but never for practice. Plane was a brushless supercub with ailerons that I purchased from Delray here on the forums. 1st pack didn't look the best but i kept it in the air and landed it safely. 2nd pack I was doing loops with this thing, some nice stable flying as well. Tried a few landings and take offs, all with success. 3rd pack was even better, even managed an emergency landing when the prop adapter let go................loctite, loctitie, loctite! Can't wait for tomorrow.
