SU26M - maiden flight

The Sukhoi kit has arrived! (Or rather I finally picked it up.) The plane looks nice and seems to be manufactured well. There is nothing left to be done except for putting the landing gear in place.

The maiden flight took place on a rugby field, in darkness, almost no wind, but the gusts were sometimes kicking the plane a lot. The plane is rather hard to fly, has ok aerobatic capabilities, does not glide at all, but it is fun.

I shall report back in about a week when I will have more experience in better conditions.
