  Greg Arnette accomplished the maiden flights on his BVM PNP L-39 on 6 August 2016. The conditions at his ranch were perfect, so it was a matter of just a few flights to get the control travels and gyro adjustments dialed in. The BVM manual describes all of the settings and an S.D. Card is available for a Spektrum 18X radio. Of course, every pilot has his preference for expo numbers.
