After flying the SBD for a few flights, the Tiffie was rigged and readied.
By the time it came to fly the Typhoon, the wind speed had increased to 50mph - if she wasn't going to fly in that, she wasn't going to fly at all.
Photos complete, let's get her airborne!
Amazing! A 28lb beast with a 4" thick root section actually soared away, and needed down trim to stay in sight. Aileron and rudder trim were spot on, I think the C of G can come back a little too. I tired a few rolls - very axial. A slight bump on landing meant that the spinner fell off - not surprising with the mass of it. A quick repair though and she'll be good to go again soon.
The wind increased to 70mph+ as the day wore on, and the light got better and better. Alas, it became to dangerous to launch aircraft so I walked the dogs a bit then drove home.
The video, as promised...
