Successful maiden for the e-2MRE

The Dreamline (aka Nelly and Highlight) flew a treat on its 06h00 maiden this morning. The Dualsky 260 watt 480 outrunner and the 1100 ma 5C Hyperion easily coped with a multitude of 200 metre launches - the zippy performance making the 200 metre cut off in an easy 15 seconds. V tail RE on such a long tail boom takes some getting used to as there is little roll coupled with the rudder yaw, not unlike the bigger Esprit, but will take a bit of getting used to. Will have to use Mark's CAM rather than my Brit unit, which we could not get functioning. Will be a mission to spot land for the postals, it just keeps coming!
