The Rotmilan is flown!

well an afternoon off work mixed with doctor appointments (still no cure for gingers I,m afraid) I managed to maiden the Rotmilan. Wind speed 27knots at Roundway hill! All caught on video (to follow) thanks to The Drewett.
Bit mud on wingtip not dent!

Impressions...
Trim perfect, c of g to far back slightly, to much elevator authority and disastrous mixing of elevator to spoilers!  I have to sat that this ship is very very quick, quicker than a Italian crew ship captain leaving his ship!

Not the best vid for flying, however you get the idea.....
