Default Freewing Flight Design CTLS

I just had my first flight with this plane. It took almost full throttle to get it up a little... I thought the prop was on backwards with the lack of power. And I am no per or speed freak. I like slow and scale. But need to make sure that I can get out of trouble... Having a little extra there is good to have...

A nose over on this maiden... No damage. But tried it again yesterday, and didn't get off the cround, a tiny pebble -- or one of many, caused some bounce. Prop strike, then endo! Slight front gear damage...

After realizing that the problem with the front landing gear was the servo horn slipping.

Super glue.

Then it flew!

i was able to modify a hatch in the CTLS to get the camera in the cabin area.

I removed the front windshield and added magnets to take on and off. Installed some of my own dashboard detail.
