I would suggest low rates to begin with , and if possible have someone experienced trim it for you on that first flight ( start with both elevons SLIGHTLY up , with the right elevon SLIGHTLY higher than the left elevon ) .
There is no rudder , so it's " bank and yank " . To make a turn you initiate a bank with ailerons , then yank on the elevator to complete the turn .
If you have already built the paper airplane airframe , try that one first - it will be easier to fly than the DTD , especially if you put some dihedral in the wings .
Okay thank you. What would you say is good for low rates? Oh and the paper airplane one...well i didn't put any dihedral into it.
I didn't know how to keep it up....
But if you tell me how to add dihedral, i can redo it. Also, are you sure that this power system is enough for the paper airplane? Its the one i was going to use for the DTD:
