I took off the ground with it both times. I agree, it needs the low end to be richened some. We checked the cg, but wasn't exactly sure where we should check it at on this one. Also, with the clevis on the elevator slipping, it kept wanting to climb. Once I get a proper fitting clevis, I'll be able to see how bad the pitching up is. I was happy with it over all. I did fly it around in laps a few times before I gave it over to my friend.

Man, I miss the eighties.

CG should be on the main spar. About 1/3 back from the leading edge. Yeah, get that clevis fixed, just like helis, you don't want to loose any control surfaces. Er, well rudder is optional on a plank.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?
