Yes, I do believe it made them pitchy, "squirrelly" we call it up here "all over the dang place, with no where to go". I imagine this can be cancelled out to some degree using a programmable radio, but an improvement on design helps out a lot. Still too windy, as soon as the weather slows down a bit we'll head ut to fly the planes again. Until then, I'm staring up on the re-design of my old Bandit, now called the Backyard Bandit (fuselage is also longer). I'm going back to re-do some of my earlier failures, giving them new life.
