FASER Flight 1: pitch/roll doublets. Takeoff went well, initial flying under manual control for pilot familiarization and trimming. Investigated various landing configuration schemes (full wing flaps, inner flaps only, clean). Several stalls were performed, benign pitch break with slight left roll. Engaged the controller twice. Throttle setting seemed a bit low. Rudder trim setting was way off, resulting in a sustained 5deg sideslip flat turn. Roll/pitch doublets went fine. Landing was challenging due to the small runway and the folding prop makes it hard to slow the aircraft down.
