It was a little sluggish on turns but that is to expected I guess from what I have read here. balance seemed to be about 3/4 " in front of the carbon fiber crossbar in the nose. the thrust line of the motor is 90 degrees to the body has anyone added a little up thrust to that to maybe push the nose down a bit? Or is it a matter of adding weight to the nose?
So far so good still working on securing the canopy the Velcro is not working out leaning towards magnets now.
Pictures to follow!!
I swear the KF's move tha CG forward.... and you have a double KF
So I would move the CG 1" forward and go again.
Also it helps if the motor is up a coupla inches high on the wing. This helps push the nose down.
I have not played with thrust angles
