Flew 2 more 1250's and 4 more 1350's this morning for a total of 50 more minutes of flight time logged on the little 'cat !

Abundant sunshine, 72 degrees and little to no wind...just perfect

GBL, I snapped a couple of pics for you as per your request for elevator pics. Mine is basically level; maybe just a smidge of up elevator induced through mechanical trim. I always trim my models to fly hands-off at 50-60% throttle. As trimmed, at roughly 50% throttle, my Wildcat will fly straight and level hands-off for at least 250 yards before she starts to gently bank into the direction the wind is taking her. I just tested her again this morning and with little to no wind, at about 100-150 feet altitude, she just sails on by looking as cool as ever

Also, look down the long axis of the model and ensure the elevators are level, using the main wing as a guide...mine were a bit "wonky" as the Brits would say, and needed some light tweaking to get them straight.

Hope you get your bugs worked out...remember, gentle on the thumbs, easy does it
