Are your throttle end points set to the max the Tx will allow?

They are.... I think I found the problem, it was a loose/stripped set screw on the motor shaft. I had to cut open the fuselage to get the motor out anf find it though. I think or at least hope I have the problem rigged together were it will work. Thank for responding to my post.

No problem, just go on out to Hico and get some good Chicken Fried in the cafe down town Hico. That will make that glider fly good.

Twenty years in Plano TX and the kids still live in TX. One in Frisco and one in Carrollton. But I have been to Hico. Try to get out to TX every year around the holidays during Christmas.

The Ventus is a bit of a challenge to fly with the narrow wings but just think it makes you a better pilot in the long run.

Ralph, I was mistaken. I have been to Hicco but that is not where the Chicken Fried Steak that was so good came from. Try the Texan Cafe & Pie Shop in Hutto just a few miles east of Round Rock. If you have never been there you need to make the trip.
