Being somewhat of a beginner, this kit was rather difficult for me to build, but still fun nonetheless and
at around 19 grams without rubber, the model flies pretty well and for a pretty decent time.

One issue for me was that I found it rather difficult to make properly sized cross pieces, so it resulted in a slight "banana" shape
Also, the nose came out rather crooked for some reason... Undecided
Ah well, not too terrible for a 3rd model

Years back I launched my Debut off the table at the FAC Nats in Geneseo. As it gently spiraled up to a mere dot and drifted over the hangers, then gone... I was walking out to see if I could find it. I happened to walk by Gordon Roberts the designer of the Debut. I said to him - I've finally got my Debut trimmed right and it flew away!

He simply said "Of course!"

have fun - Rick

Plansdude please keep at it and you will get happy when you fly that Debut. Mine survived being crushed in an elevator thanks to repairs made with CA. When I thought to fly it last Saturday I decided not to retire it. It might need a recover in spots but when I did that in the past the model has flown away. This faded Debut will still get up and go. I hope you did the dt  on the new one you have under construction.
