Twin edf Airbus A320 - Maiden flight videos

Details

First take off. It could have been the last one...

A320

Video of the A320 tail heavy

This is what happens when a plane is too rear balanced (tail heavy).
That was my lucky day! The A320 made an attempt to fly like a 3D plane and hit the ground abruplty on her wheels. The airframe was not damaged. Only the front wheel was bent. It took a minute to fix it.
Only my pride was a bit scratched ! What a stupid mistake. I had placed the battery pack much too rear on the plane.

This one is the right one!

A320 au décollage

After we moved the battery pack to the front, we checked the balance of the plane. It looked fine. Last check and take off.
This time it worked fine and the A320 made a fantastic maiden flight.
