Look another home video!!!!!  Well at least it's not footage of another family visit to the funeral park feeding the swans during a family picnic.

This is the 63inch/1600mm Flightline F4U-1A Corsair maiden on 02-24-19.  Winds were light but variable at any moment...a little tricky for me being so out of practice.  A relatively short flight ....I expect flight times to be at or near 8-9minutes with more time to spare.  My second flight ended the day for this bird after stuffing the landing gear back into the wheel wells on a botched landing.....soft belly skid misjudging our North End runway slope.  The landing gear are already fixed and ready for continued service.

I did not notice a was dive bombing Eric.....so I scared us both.....it was close but the video shows we had East to West separation of perhaps 10ft or so

Here is the maiden:
