Time for me to Fly...

I flew the Fr3aK again this morning. This time it was sunny and there was some nice lift. The #1 thing I'm going to do before the next outing is add some white stripes to the wing bottom. I kept getting disoriented with it because the wing looks the same on top as bottom. I also think a colored fin would help.

After that, I want to try moving the CG rearward a little. I felt like I constantly had to hold in elevator to keep the nose up or trim it so it pulled too hard up on launch. My launches felt different today too. I think I'm going to lose the glove when flying this plane. The blade is comfortable enough without it.

Mostly, it's just a different plane and it's going to take some time to get adjusted to it.
