First time ever. The boy has built a carload of 'em but never flown until now. I'll let him tell you about it. He's on the highway home now. His stuff flew really good after we got it trimmed and balanced.
This one had a tough landing though. He flew about 10 laps before he got dizzy and roller coastered in.

Good job bullit!!!!

Man, I bet your hooked now. Building is fun. Flying is soooo much better. It doesn't take long for the dizzies to go away.

Congrats, Bullit! Welcome to the world of Rotational Instability! So, is the red one a White Lightning?  And I am guessing the other one is a Baby Flite Streak?

The red one is his own self design I believe. The Yellow one, if I recall correctly is a Li'l Wizard.

Bullit, you should practice dry flying circles to get your inner ear attuned to turning circles. I do it every time I've gone through a few months of inactivity. I stand in the kitchen or somewhere I won't knock over lamps and other objects and fly circles in both directions and wingovers. It helps to do some high altitude laps too, because if you ever get hold of an unstable tail heavy plane that's where you have to fly it so when it roller coasters it won't pancake into the ground.
