That is a whole different ball-game to sport flying.

So far I have read standard model sport stuff ... but for racing you should be looking at having plane set-up as neutral as possible at WOT ... that means tailplane angle to main wing ... as little engine downthrust as possible ... all compensations are made in the design and incidence angles of the flying surfaces. We need to minimise induced drag and have power line as straight through model as possible.

A racer will descend when throttle is reduced needing elevator to maintain altitude ... should fly straight and level at WOT.



That's how I set-up my Pylon racing 20's and 40's .....
