Maiden flights.

Today two of the Mig-7's from the home build got to see the blue yonder from close-up. Well done Markus on a very successfull maiden flight. Your color scheme (red and grey), did well, being clearly visible. Conditions were not the best, but this is where the slope played a major role. The wind strength was about 15km, guestimate, comming side on. We could not loop, rolls were slow, inverted flight was short. But something I noticed, I was alwasy in control and could still push the envelope knowing I could recover safely. Enjoy the photo's and please make comments. We would like to hear from you. Sean.
