First Flight

Today was the first flight of the UAV.  I learned that during your pre-flight inspection you have to check control surface function and direction.  If you don't (especially on the elevator) your plane will go down when you tell it to go up, and it will crash.  After reversing the channel on the radio it flies fine in manual mode but acts erratically in any of the autopilot modes.  The plane itself is very maneuverable and fast, but also can glide for a long way.  It also does loops (inside and out) and can fly upside down.
