"Here are a couple outdoor pictures from this morning – it was big time windy here in Texas today and chose not to fly the FK today. The rotating beacon looks pretty cool during taxiing but really not very visible in the air.

Mark adds:

"I also forgot to tell you that the plane weighed in at 10 lbs 2 oz and I was able to balance by just moving the battery/receiver (in the “Stongbox”) forward and back and did not need at any lead at all.

"Anyway, the maiden flight went great – it was truly a pleasure to build and great fun to fly."
