So I am a bit of a 3DHS nut, I have all of the 7X size planes made by 3DHS. I love how the big planes fly, I started thinking and getting out the tape measure confirmed I could get a 50cc size 3DHS plane into my car, which is a Honda Fit.

I was hoping to pick up a local 92 Edge but that fell through, dissapointed as it was as far as I know a one of a kind scheme. Still the seed was planted and I was waiting for the racing white scheme to come back in stock. While I was waiting one surfaced again local, but it was wrecked, a pancake into the ground from a low harrier that carried too much energy.

I looked at it and figured eh I would give it a try. Now keep in mind I have never done a repair of a balsa plane before. Still I felt it was a good time to learn as here was a local airframe that needed repair and if I could do it I would save a lot of money.

So here is my little journey into balsa plane repair, recovering, and entry into the 50cc realm.

Since I have answered quite a few questions on the Bavarian Cortex and it seems like the same questions keep coming up. I am going to consolidate all my videos that I make and step by step write ups here so it is easier for me to find and point people to.

Here is a list of important info to know about the Cortex

2. Stick priority controls how fast the Cortex "lets" go of the plane and stops stabilizing it. So the further one moves the sticks away from center the more the Cortex stops stabilizing the plane. In a 3D plane this setting is better if higher since a higher setting will cause the Cortex to let go of the plane earlier. Higher setting equals the stick taking priority.

3. Latching controls how fast the Cortex starts to stabilize the plane again as the sticks are returned to center. In a 3D plane this setting should be lower as a lower setting means it take longer or the sticks to be closer to the center before the Cortex starts to stabilize the plane again.
