Default Maiden flight complete...

And it was succesful apart from the landing...
I broke my skids, as I came in a bit heavy, and they seem very brittle.
Have these changed recently, as mine have holes for an FM aerial mount.

Failing that, I guess Gorilla gear from a Trex 500 will work?

Does anyone have a picture of a stretch atom with the 6hv landing skids. I heard it looks nice but I want to see it for myself.

I have ordered some 6HV skids and a vertical tail fin.
Hopefully, they won't be made of pasta!
