Exceed RC FA18 now has a Guardian

I have a great little 70 mm EDF that's designed by ExceedRC and was sold by Nitroplanes. It's great flyer except its tendency to pitch up when being slowed down. It's kind of a flying challenge to land because you have gradually push down on the elevator to get the darn thing to land without stalling. So, I installed a Guardian and either 2D wing leveling or 3D with heading hold should correct the problem . This weekend is a bit cold, rainy and blustery to test fly it, but I will when it clears up and report back with video.

BELOW IS THE "BEFORE" GUARDIAN INSTALLATION VIDEO where it balloons on landing slow down or simply climbs when throttled back.
