Introducing my PT-19 Cornell!

Maidened my new PT-19 Cornell from Eflite today. She is my second one, and I was pretty green when I flew the first one, which I eventually crashed one too many times. This ARF is no longer available.

She has a 450 sized motor, a Hobby King Orange 3-axis stabilization reciever. This is the first time I have used a 3 axis gyro in a plane before. She is small and prone to being beaten up by winds, so I thought it would be a good place to try it on. I had increased the gain on all axes, and in flight in dives this set up oscillations so I took them all back to the stock 50% and it smoothed right out.

She has about 1.5/oz in the nose. Other than that she is unmodified and flew wonderfully!
