Well, after my first 5 hours flying my XL I can report that this is a fantastic aircraft. It flys hands off with minimal trim, I must have been very lucky setting up the rudder alignment as it tracks straight and true with no rudder input. The Jabiru engine has plenty of power and am working out what to set the adjustable prop at. Currently getting 105kts at 2900 RPM. Am getting a lot of wind noise through the canopy frame so will look at sealing that better. With only 5 hrs so far am looking forward to many more. To all still building, keep at it as the reward at the end of the tunnel can't be measured or overstated. First flight in your own creation really can't be described adequately.
