How do you guys trim your Funbat for level flight. Mine flies level at a fairly slow speed but heads for the heavens when I jump on the throttle. I trimmed my elevator for level flight about 3/4 throttle. Trying to hold consistent down elevator at high speed is a little too difficult for me. This way I can do high speed passes with the plane going up after it gets past me. Inverted flight is easier too and needs much less elevator correction.

If you trim your plane for higher speed, be sure and add a switch for takeoff. I mixed my DX7 gear switch to bring the elevater back to level. Once it gets airborne I flip the switch back. I also use it for low speed flying and landing. I experimented a little with flaperons but I haven't reached a conclusion yet.
