Used my Guardian 2D/3D for the first time yesterday - and I had fun with it. Lots of fun.

Launched hands off in 3D (full throttle), and whatched as the plane kept on going up that launch path, getting smaller, and smaller - until I took back control of the aileron stick.

Did big lazy circles up in the sky, using 2D, by merely holding the aileron stick to one side or the other.

Landed once in 2D - but there was no wind to speak of yesterday, so cannot say much about landing in 2D. (Except watch out for those big wide 2D turns, if you have a tight landing space)

It is possible, to relax while the plane almost flies itself in 2D circles, with this device. I was flying in a Finwing Penguin - its maiden flight actually. Nice FPV plane. Had my pots at 50%, and my transmitter gain at 100% - no oscillations. Will try my pots at 75% next time.
