This video of the Rapide's maiden flight, filmed by Dave Blandford, consists of just two clips: The take-off and trimming circuits, which reveals that the model was airborne almost before I got the tail up, and the landing which I was pretty pleased with.

The Rapide flies very nicely in smooth air but these clips, shot by Robert, show how untidy it can get in any turbulence.

This video, shot by Dom Mitchell at Middle Wallop in August 2016, shows how much steadier the model is in a breeze following the fitting of an Eagle Tree Guardian stabiliser.
