Premiere Aircraft Cessna 170 - Initial Impressions After the Maiden

The Cessna 170 is a monster foam high-wing from Flex Innovations' Premiere Aircraft line. I just finished the maiden and I'd like to report on how she flew; watch the video for the full report!

Splash

She Flies, and Flies Well!

It's been a cold winter in Cleveland, but after Mother Nature cut me a break from the wind and snow, I rushed out to dial in the Premiere Aircraft Cessna 170 from Flex Innovations. This plane is everything I thought it would be, and then some. It's docile and forgiving at low throttle settings and gentle stick movements... but wakes up and becomes a capable aerobat when you bang the sticks around. I also gave my thoughts on the flaps and the Flex Aura gyro that comes standard in the Cessna 170. Please watch the video below to get my full impressions, and stay tuned for the flight review coming soon!

Very good initial report of this airplane. Definitely one that everybody needs in their hanger. They are the new spotlight of our field right now.

Are you going to be covering Livewing in your full review? We have found that everybody (3d guys) love the features of Livewing. Most convert it before they even maiden the aircraft.

Pretty sure he means full length ailerons i.e. incorporating the flaps for faster roll.
