DaveB...the general consensus was a general amazement at how far the jet could glide.

As I am sure you are aware, we were all very happy you got it down in one piece with no damage upon landing. That was some great dead stick flying!

Also, who did you let fly it? I was surprised to see someone else at the controls. Heck...can I buddy box next time you bring it out?

I need to hook up with Matt and get something faster to fly. The wing that I have is so slow compared to what you guys are flying (prop planes, not Dave's jet). lol

Gliding Jet
Yes, Skwidd the Bandit glides very well thank goodness. However, it is balanced per manufacturer which makes it very nose heavy. It will glide better once I move the CG back. I had almost full up elevator on take offs and on landings. That is not the way I like to fly so the batteries will be moving to the rear. Im glad we were able to get one of my other flying buddies that is a JetCat rep. He helped us get the engine running without flame out. There were two settings that were set for too fast of a response from idle and to full speed. When these were changed to normal settings the engine was fine. It should not have been set up for fast response in 90 deg weather. When I flew in Houston about 2 months ago, it was cooler and I didnt have any flame outs.

Dave, interesting on the CG. I guess when you have power, the thrust vectoring helps, but dead stick shows the aircraft's true colors.

I am still amazed though, since your jet was the first I have seen in action, and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!! Do it every weekend!!!!

I also heard tonight that I missed Bob getting some flying in. Last he flew one of his birds, he did a great job. He did better than I have done on my best day, then claimed he was rusty. Rusty? Whatever!!!!! lol great flying.

What a great sunday!
