I took it out for maiden today.  Wind was 18 to 27km/h N/W.  Most pilot will not take for maiden in this condition.  This is certainly the time to test out the flight characteristic.  I have flown in other extreme condition (remember those gusty wind student nights?) This will truly test the Aura5.

For the maiden flight, I am going to use a 3S2200mah.  With CG at 63mm, the battery sits all the way back with a nose drop a bit (insurance for this wind condition).  I do have the Aura5 gyro enabled. 

Flight time is 12 1/2 mins and came down to 3.75mah/cell.  The Differential thrust is used for taxiing only.  It was turn off during flight.  DR/Expo A 70/30
E 50/25 R 70/20.

With 3 click up elevator and there she goes.

Great!  Looks like a very stable plane considering the conditions. 

A real nice runway dance at the end of the video.  :)
