Maiden Flight

Got up reasonably early, did a preflight check after doing a light oil with some Triflow.
Installed the battery, canopy and started to spool it up.
Cyclic needed a few clicks of right and forward to correct, tail seemed pretty steady with the gain set to 72% on AVCS mode.
Lifted off a little to check the handling out, then dropped it down and spooled down to make sure everything was still okay, and it was.
Did a few more hovers and a little bit of a circuit and it feels great, can't really tell the difference between this and my Align made heli to be honest!!!
I'll post some pics soon.
