Daron maidens his Mig-7.

Today was a day like few before. Maitlands was on a mission. To prove Murphy does have his say..... again.
Last week when I had time to fly myself DIZZY, there was no wind. But alas, as I am working the entire weekend, she blows like the world is about to end. Well done to Daron, and Gavin, for the successfull maiden flights of their Migs. Seems that Darons Mig has a problem keeps flying inverted..? Must be the pilot, he will deny it, because everything else was good :-)
Morne showed us that a correct CG (balance point) makes a plane fly much better. This after two VERY UNSUCCESSFULL launches. He also showed us that one does not need a mid-air to loose orientation and go full tilt into tera firma. His corrostang came out with little bush-rash. Will post some pics of the stang and Gavins mig. Thanx to JL Productions for bringing the slope to a screen near ME!! Thanx Johann!!....Sean.
