Well crap. I noticed today that my tail boom seemed crooked and I tried to straighten in but I couldn't get it resolved. So I started looking closer and sure enough - right near where it goes into the frame it's cracked.

This was the very reason I sold my first mCPx. I can NOT seem to quit breaking these dang things! I'll order a replacement.

BUT... I seemed to make some decent progress in my flying today. I flew in idle up with a milder pitch curve and it seemed to help. I only got out of control once and it's because I lost orientation.

Being as I fly a lot of fixed wing 3D, I usually use my rudder to turn A LOT!! So it's hard for me to get used to do everything with the right stick and only using the left stick to get the tail behind me.

That and I keep trying to slow down by moving the left stick down. Again... I have to remember that the right stick does all of this now!!
