I finally settled on "down" elevator trim so that it flies just a little upward at full throttle. From there you can program a switch that puts the elevator level for takeoff, landing and slow flight. You could also program a throttle-elevator mix on a switch. Flaperons can be used too but you only have one servo.
Thanks for the feedback. Eagle eyes may also note I extended the nose by about 25mm.
I like the idea of adding a second servo for flaperons. Could open other options for mixing with elevator for some fun.
I actually dont mind so much about it heading up with speed, its such a laugh.
Has anybody tried adding a lower KFm4 step?
