The BVM L-39 was first
shown at Top Gun 2016 and placed 4th in the very
competitive Pro-Jet Class. A few more refinements
that are included in the production models were
demonstrated at "First In Flight". This straight
wing jet has excellent slow flight and landing
Greg Arnette accomplished
the maiden flights on his BVM 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.
