Maiden flights general tips

General tips for maiden.

 - check control direction is correct, left,right,rudder,elevator.

- ensure correct throws in control surface. A lot of times I see planes setup with too much throws, pilots cannot control. For gliders, less is more.  

-dial in some expo for all control surface. Ard 20-30%. So it's not too sensitive at start.
