Hey folks, I have to brag about my first Nitro flight.
I have a Beam E4 electric, the Freya nitro and I building
a 500 T-Rex. I have a bunch of flights on the Beam with
out crashing, no 3D yet but its coming. So this weekend
I decided to try flying my Freya by myself. I went to my
park, put on the glo warmer, got the radio set, got the starter
and cranked it over. Started on the 2nd shot, and I let it go,
and go my radio.
MAN its extremely controllable. I had some serious pucker power
going but no problem getting into a hover, and holding it. Did
a few runs up and down the park at WELL over one foot alt.
Hovered and rose to about 10 feet and brought it back down.
I was too scared to try any of the screaming around the park I
do with the beam but its so easy to control. I am REALLY happy
with it and proud that I was able to do it myself.

Congrats. You'll love that Freya. I bought a used one late last summer, first 90. They fly great and are very stable. I have an EVO 50 also but nothing like getting a 90 up in the air the first time so I can attest to the serious pucker going on.

Just flew the beam (too windy to go to the park) and now it feels like a toy. Big let down!!

I know the feeling, in April I first flew my Freya. It is my first 90.

I was flying 30 and 50 size nitro before but nothing beats the feeling of that first 90 flight.

It is so stable that I was confident to make circuit and lazy 8 on its first flight.

Congratulation
