OO-YES ready for its maiden flight

My Fridayfly Swift S.1 (2.8m) is now ready to maiden. The plane was mostly built when I picked it up in Germany a few weeks ago. I was hesitating whether to fit a motor or leave it as a glider. The problem is that the winds on most of our slopes are not that reliable and I don’t want to have to land this baby way out. Also, I have enough light planes, and this one can do with half a kilo of extra weight for the motor. So Urs from Leomotion.com built me a nice and powerful little motor :-). Programming the plane was easy, now waiting for the fog to clear, so I can maiden it on our airfield….
