She flies, I'm over the moon, crisp response to all flight controls, cog seems very close only a couple clicks of aileron trim, I'll make a video once I have something to work with, here's a couple pictures of the big day for now. Little side note , it all fits in a vw polo

Great stuff Alexis. I love the working joystick from the internal view.

It looks like it flies rather quickly - was that deliberate or it's natural speed?

Congrats

Thanks, The stick and pilot animation are still works in progress but im happy so far, as for the speed, it will need more testing of the stall behavior before I'll go to the slower end of the envelope, certainly at no point even a couple points during the tow that looked very slow from the ground did control authority feel like it was mushy so I guess the trim at the moment is a little quick but its safe for now, remembering that this is an aerobatic glider that will need to maintain momentum to fly a good routine.
Regards,
Alexis
