Baby Ringmaster maiden

Sorry about the sideways video. Flew great! Balanced right at the leading edge so I'm sure I can move the c.g. back and get more aggressive turns. I would've started gluing nickels on the elevator but it was getting hot and I only had $100 bills with me. It pulls out of the stooge with full up elevator and still crop-dusted for about five feet so hopefully moving the c.g. back will fix that. The scale at the post office said 5.65oz. This plane lands like a feather, stall it right off the ground and it hovers in.
I also used my Larry Renger handle for the first time:

If you do nothing else to improve your flying experience, get a real handle!

Thanks for reading,
Jim

That was brilliant and looked so smooth.

I have a crick in my neck now after watching it!

Nice Jim,

Those things build nose heavy, once you get the balance right it should do what you want it to.

Great work, Jim. I love the handle too. As always a great engine run.

The handle is available from RSM distribution. It's designed to give less input towards neutral so you don't chase the plane all over trying to fly level.
The bladder came loose from it's moorings on that run and burst, hence the abrupt stop.
