Need to keep track of great info.

fly a "stabilized approach". This means that your landing approach is stable, in that it has no time limit. You could start your approach at 20 feet high or 2,000 ft high, and you can fly in this mode as long as you want.

Rules for Trimming
http://www.dream-rc-airplanes.com/trimming.html

Grab every part of the airplane. Pull on every part. Make sure all hinges are glued. Make sure all control horns are glued into the surfaces (I see this a lot). Make sure the pushrod connectors are tight. I have seen every possible part loose.

I got one of the 808 keychain cams and have to say it's pretty darn good video for $12. Mine is the #11 model I think but they say on http://chucklohr.com/808/ that #16 has the best vid quality. So I tried it on the front of the wing and rear stab with some velcro and having part of the plane show in the video frame helps alot for viewing. So here is the vid from the rear horizontal stabilizer.

I flew the edf finally. I shortened the vid because the last part the wife just had blue sky. Landing was ok but our temp runway is raised and rolled off the end putting some damage on the nose gear.

It flew so good on the maiden battery I tried some things I wouldn't normally try. I got disoriented and put it nose 1st into the ground, but only have to repair both ailerons. Hot glue hinges pulled some foam off the wings and one control horn came loose.
