Lidl A-10 Warthog - Flight Video - chuck glider RC conversion

By Bavarian RC, 10 May 2019 into Lidl Gliders in Fixed Wing Watch on YouTube »

Flight video of the Lidl A-10 Warthog, that was built from a simple Lidl chuck glider. Having modified so many things compared to the original Lidl glider made me quite nervous before the maiden flight. Nevertheless the CG was just about right and my A-10 only needed some trimming. Flying the A-10 is not really a relaxing experience, but definitely a lot of fun!
