Default Parkzone Extra 300 Maiden Flight!!!

Hi guys and gals.

So having read reviews about this little plane after I had purchased it I was very worried about its first flight as my 300 has got the flat profile wing.
I changed COG from 3" to 2.75" checked all control surfaces, set my dual rate to 50% on all controls and went for it.

I was nervous as hell but..................she flew like a dream no trimming needed atall. I checked stall speed while I had good altitude and then took my final approach. Wow is all I can say. Perfect landing.

I had 4 further flights all of which were amazing.
So basically I had no issues with this plane and it is bags of fun.

Hope you all had a good weekend of flying.

Cheers

Nidge.

Just an update.

I have now got about 25 flights (including 5 today) under my belt with this 300 and I am still amazed how it flies. It is a wonderfully easy plane to fly in my opinion and am just wondering why some are reported to have problems.

Anyway I must recharge my lipos now.

Take care

Nige.

I have to agree with you. I got one last week specifically to do aerobatics and find it an amazing performer. Loops and rolls are quick and precise and spin stalls are fast enough to make me dizzy. It does land a bit hot--definitely not a floater, but it sure is fun to fly! It makes flying my war birds seem very relaxing.
