Maybe your first flight had something to do with the balance of your plane? You said you had it pointing upwards a few times which makes me assume your battery is placed too much to the rear. Did you try to place it a bit further forward?

We had a discussion in the beginning of this thread about the proper CG point on this plane.
Probably CG wasn't spot on at first flight, even I tried to check it with the marks on wings. I was using stock 1500mAh 3S and I placed it to roughly middle of the battery tray.

And most of the hard moves on first flight were purely my mistakes - pulling elevator too hard, way too hard - as I have to do with my SkyRunner and it's "nice" Nine Eagles mini TX...

More videos and (hope not) crashes will be posted to youtube. Using head-cam (Jobo JIB 2 HD) to record those, no cam on glider - looking for some keychain cam to add it to canopy.
