Loosened up the covering so will have to glue that back before trying again. I'll try some different batteries etc to see if I can get more power. Wind is back up of course
Mine is different than the box picture, instruction booklet and videos! They must be farmed out to various small builders who put their own mark on it! The "top" doesn't fit and interferes with the prop so left it off for the test flight. Anyway, not giving up yet but a little discouraged! Aero
Yes, my prop was also fouling the top piece (that was after I had obtained a new prop!)
You were lucky to get a glide of any sort as mine just dived into the ground. I can only assume that my prop angle is wrong but who knows?
