A great afternoon's flying, for me anyway... I arrived to find a 'Marie Celeste' deserted site, until a glance at the big tree told everything. See the Gallery for the story...

Anyway, as the wind dropped to zero, I had three flights with the Cargo Twin, which does fly perfectly in these conditions, and the first flight with the Turbo Raven. CG was still a bit far forward, and it flicked out of the loop, but otherwise was well behaved, although the power is just about right, not over-the-top as I'd thought it might be. All-up weight is now 8lbs of which 1lb is the 6s battery.
