We went to Eastbourne (Butts Brow SE slope) to fly our slope soarers but sadly the wind had done a runner. No wind. The new Mini FFF would love it!
So Aos fetched it from the dashboard & I put a few hundred winds in and gave it a test flight.
It flew straight but down so I gave one side of the tailplane a tweak upwards (this is because of my time flying RC, on reflection I should have twisted one of the wind tips – called washout).
On the second go with a few more winds it flew, floating through the air off towards to bushes by the carpark!
One more, no more.. I put plenty of extra winds in and gave it a last go, as you can see it flew brilliantly!
I think it could do with a bit more up elevator to gain more height but think it’s rather splendid. It flew to the left, usually they fly in circles to the right but I think it was weather-vaining into the wind coming from behind & from the left.
