Almost ready to go. All I need now is a fine day with light winds, and someone with a strong throwing arm to launch it. After he's flown his own Chilli of course...

And it's flown! More pics in the Gallery. Thanks to Mike for the launch and Dave for taking the photos. It was slightly edgy at first, I think the CG needs to be just a bit further forward and the trims were out, but it settled down and should be fine next time. I didn't get round to swinging the wings, too much to think about, again hopefully next time. The stabiliser definitely helped but that also needs a bit of adjustment.
