Set the COG to 27.5% and have a few of degrees of + reflex on the elevons... this is a nose heavy setup.. This is what was set in the maiden videos up above and makes for a nice steady flight..

I will be adjusting my COG back when the weather gets better, this should further improve the axial roll and the inverted flight..

Comparisons vs my favorite...The Nutball
Unlike my Nutball, the multi dihedral on this one makes it happy and stable when inverted and it just needed a bit of a push to keep the nose from dropping when upside down..(offsetting the heavy nose and reflex set on the trim)

In flight.. Stable and maneuverable like my Nutball, but much improved inverted and in the roll...All my larger Nutballs have been a bit barrelly in the roll and have hated inverted flight..

Goldguy has his smaller Nutball versions rolling better, so I leave it to him to knock up a smaller indoor version of this, for comparrison..It should be easy to make a 3mm flat depron version, all you need is the folds done
