  • Maxford USA Hughes H-1 V2

    I've had this in the box for just over 2 years and I figured this was the off season to build it. Since there isn't much info out there on this model, I started a VLOG series about it.

    Episode 1 went up yesterday. (just an intro)

          No clue on maiden...I think this weekend might be the last good flying weather for me here in Ohio. Who knows?

          As for the LG...the next video will talk more about that...but since there is very little info about this plane out there...I had not considered a little forward rake. (have you heard someone that needed to do that with this plane? I'd love to hear more!)
          My plan is to do some ground handling testing and see. Also, the LG are pretty foreward in the wing...and I believe in front of the CG...so that will be something I look at!
