diving in fast forward flight
 
My Kyosho Concept 30 SRX is perfectly trimmed in the hover, but nosedives
during fast forward flight.
How do I cure this please?

This is a standard feature of the Hiller stabilising system......!

There are two cures:

1) Use the "stunt" trims on you transmitter.

2) Apply positive pitch equally to both stabiliser paddles. Adjust the amount
until it no longer nosedives or climbs (look at any full-size Hiller if you
don't believe me!) Don't do this if you're intending to fly aerobatics or
sustained inverted flight......!

If you want to know *why* it does it, have a look at Colin Mills' articles
available from www.w3mh.co.uk They're in pdf format. Go to the articles page,
and scroll right down to the bottom. I forget which issue its in, but he
offers a very clear description of why this happens. All the issues are well
worth a read anyway!
