As an extra thought, when I launch my gliders I used MPX 4000 tray Tx securely fastened to my body so I knew exactly where the controls were and it left me 2 hands free. Since I moved to Taranis, I have now got a very useful tray attachment which does the same thing

Yes Vince, I have a similar arrangement with a tray and waist strap to securely hold my transmitter in place when I am launching my own models. However the waist strap has to be quite long these days! :lol:

Very nearly correct Barry
My tiny tip aileron is y-leaded to the main aileron lead back at the receiver and I had inadvertently parallelled it with the speed flap on the same side, so to be on the safe side I took the tip extensions off rather than fiddle about with the wiring on the slope.
It looks much better with the extended tips fitted. David Ashby, RCM&E editor, took a few great photos of my 25 in flight with the tips on and so I'll post them here later today.

Here's the link to three photographs taken by David Ashby, RCM&E editor.
Scroll down to Reply No 2577 to see the photos, the last one being of Si (swarrans) getting the 25 away safely on its second flight.

Yes it is an ASH 25 Mi, Vince. The power train was securely tucked away for these flights on the slope.

The up-and-go has an AXI 4130/16 Gold Line motor fitted with a 14" four-bladed propeller fed with nominally 26 volts from a 7 cell 5000 mAh Lipo battery through a Jeti Advance 77 Pro Opto Esc. Radio is Futaba 14SG with two R7008SB receivers giving voltage readout for both receiver batteries and also variometer download to the Tx. Voltage and current draw for the motor is displayed on a separate telemetry system.

I chose to have the maiden flights on our local slope as: 1. a day dawned with suitable conditions forecast, 2. my team of helpers were all available and 3. I am very familiar with the characteristics of the slope.

I am planning to bring the model to Baldock on 9th July when I hope to have the 25 make its first tow launch courtesy of the Ghost Squadron team. See you there?

Regards, Eric
