Elevons were chosen for the first flight test. This was before the canards were installed. No stabs either. I rigged it up as is in picture 3 rite out of the paint booth. High winds detoured most of the afternoon but I managed to get a couple flights just before dark .Very touchy, The ship was was tail heavy and not enough roll control. Then I installed the vertical stabs and canards and moved more weight forward and went for round 2. First flight the ship climbed out at 5 degrees and away she went. I was still not getting the roll control I wanted so bigger ailerons were installed. At last a controlled flight .
