Well,I wasn't going to post these video's ,but after giving it some thought and looking at them a few times ,I think I may nave learned a few things about building and flying so , Help me out here guy's ...after adding all that wieght(which it doesn't need) and coming home then reviewing the video,then I realized the distance between the stab and the wing wasn't correct, so I set it to 11" 11/16th, I removed the wieght and balanced the plane again ..So far so now we get to the second video,the re-maiden...Not so good, during the end of the build I had to take apart the tail feathers and square them to the wing ,did that ok ,but did not level the stab to the fuze (about 1 degree high on the rear of the stab to the fuze) My mistake for sure ,when I throddle up it wants to loop,I cut power and it tip stalled to low to recover.... Now ,to get started on the re-build
