Flew the FJ-1 today unpainted........The maiden and the 2nd flights were uncontrollable due to the Fury being tail-heavy. The 3rd flight had things under control, the model was quite fast and manoeverable and looked nice in the air. The kp24 on 2s had plenty of power to handle a little wind.

Now there's a crumpled nose to repair before painting

The Cg had me completely flummoxed? For controllable flight the model has to balance on the wing leading-edge (at the tips)............. I wonder if the wing LEX's and the long nose pushes the cg further forward than one might imagine?
