71" Seagull Models Pilatus PC9

Since last Christmas I have been preparing this model for flight. One of the biggest holdups was that the fuel was syphoning out of the tank and flooding the inverted SC FS180 four stroke engine. That has now been resolved.

That means that today I have been able to tune the engine and commit to the air for a maiden flight. The flight was intentionally short, serving just totrim the controls, test the stall and of course land.
