Tentatively I launched the M60. I've discovered that when the wind is blowing well, the M60 has to be launched with a good amount of up elevator held on with the stick, otherwise it plunges nose first into the ground. This is what it did today and the plane almost came a cropper and was about 2 feet away from dropping over the cliff.
Second try and away she went and rose a good 100' before I sent her running parallel with the cliff.
Picking up speed I was amazed at the energy retention of this model and it reminded me of Marks old Ballistik as it would climb vertically before stall turning it into another dive and with each pass of the cliff face, it got faster and climbed higher.
Eventually I had to land her and I brought her around. As she came into the wind I should have put the nose down and landed her further back from the slope edge because I hadn't realised there was some rotor going on and she was tossed onto the ground with a thump.
You can't float this plane down for a landing, it has to be done with some speed to stop her from tip stalling.
All in all, it was a great weekend where I did manage to get in a little flying and I shall be back next spring for more.
Oh, and my new car transportation method worked a treat. The models didn't budge and I still had full view through the rear window.
