Hello everyone:
It is January 14 2008 and for those who are interrested I did the maiden
flight of the corsair this morning.

All went very well. The model accelerated down the runway at a brisk
speed lifted off and stretched for the sky. I retracted the gears and
then it was like heaven. I did the usual, rolls,loops, etc. low flybys,
however I stayed up to long and ran out of fuel. Made a dead stick
landing. A nice approach and end of a great first flight. No flaps were
used on this flight. I’m really looking forward to the next flight.
