The new Javelin Mk2 test flight

Finally a somewhat nice enough of a day for us to put another flight on the new Javelin Mk2. It's very windy however and cross wind too - I do hate Melbourne weather.

In this flight, I'm just getting the control surface angles and mixings dial in so we can input that into the autopilot. All live telemetry was recorded.

It flies really well and plenty of power and lift. Current weight comes in at 11kg with a design max gross of 16 - 17kg
