Hi

I had a great day at the field today. It was a bit cold but Mike Smith turned up to for a Maiden flight of his Premier Lion(forgive me if I got the model name wrong). Powered by an Ohlsson and Rice 60, which has now been tamed by sellotape.

I did manage to take a few pictures on my mobile. Sadly I failed to get the landing. All I can assume is I ran out of space on my phone and it stopped recording. Anyway here's the link.

Well done Mike!

:D

The abortive take offs would indicate I need a throttle so I am rigging a servo to the timming arm of the sparky to give me some flexibility with engine speed.
