I am almost finished fitting a Funkey H500D to my Raptor Titan and would like to know if anyone has advice on getting the correct incidence on the horizontal fin on the top of the tail ?I also have a Funkey Jey Ranger on my other raptor and it piches up during fast forward flight which I would like to try and avoid with the H500
.Any advice will be greatly appreciated .

Well to let you know. I have a 500E with Titan mechanics in it. I have had no problems with pithing up in fast forward flight. I did take a lot to get her balanced though.

Oops Sorry. I put my tail at the factory recommended holes for mounting. Due to the camber in the tail the trailing edge is up somewhat.

yes, it is very important that the model is balanced properly or it will be doing some funky things in flight. a slightly nose heavy machine usually tracks very smoothly in forward flight.

drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

Fireman's machine no doubtedly flies just as good as it looks. tracks very smooth and is fast.
if your cg is correct, yours should fly the same as well.
