Bonsai Maiden (Video)

Setting up a new plane is always fun. The first time I flew my Parkzone Corsair it flew perfectly except had less than half the control surface throw that it actually needed to operate. I managed to circle and land, which was a miracle.

At the other end of the scale was the first time I flew my heavily-modified and very quickly built MultiPlex EasyStar, which glided in a dead straight line right off the throw, even with a brushless inrunner, ailerons and a double-size rudder.

Maidens are, therefore, always a mixed bag for me, and the Bonsai was a bit of a hndful handful. She was overpowered, overloaded, marginally balanced and way-over thrown with no expo

In short, she was a handful.

Now, looking back (this maiden was  a few weeks ago now) she is flying beautifully and is a lot of fun for a small fixed wing FPV platform.

Check out the end of the video for some maiden crashes and craziness.
