The motor ran really nice too . You should see how fast it pulls out of a hover. Man when I gun it, it just leaps out of it. Screams, and rifles toward the heavens! I'm running a 19x8 xoar prop so it tops out a little faster than the 20x8 and the plane gets out of its own way pretty quick.

In KE I barely have to lean on the rudder to hold it level. There is quite a bit of coupling toward the canopy when I try to do KE in a high alpha attitude. The coupling is mostly gone when it is moving fast. I'm wondering what that means... is it a balance issue?

Anyway it sure was fun to have a few flights without any issues. I mark it as a great success! Can't stop grinning about it
You need to reduce the wing incidence.
