Well, with the sun shining, and a bit of breeze blowing it was time for the maiden yesterday, of my Dave Smith Models Saphir 40.
The Magnum 70 (Tuned by West) produced loads of power and with controls checked it was time to take to the sky.
After a bit of trimming out, Paul put the Saphir through it’s paces – it looked fantastic in the air, and flew brilliantly.
Once that flight was over, (and a quick cuppa) it was my turn.
With my buddy box connected (I’m still a learner really), I took the controls – wow, what can I say – it’s brilliant. Very easy to fly – I can tell I’m going to have a lot of fun with this model.
