My 788 Satellite had its first flight on Thursday of the Nats back in July 2016. The weather was perfect for test flying and I put up a bunch of flights and it flew very well and it’s a real easy friendly airplane to fly. I built it and set it up exactly according to the plan — about 1/8 washout in the left main panel and flying right/left like a Satellite should. In fact the only adjustment I made was to the rudder tab, but quickly figured out that I should have left it where I had it about one eighth left. I ended up using the OS FSR .40 from another Class C model that I had pranged at our May contest. I figured the Magnum Pro .45 might be a little too hot. On Friday I flew it in C/D Classic gas and ended up forth, so not bad for a first contest.
