Oh dear!! Bit hard to tell whether he fell or was pushed. You may have a thrust angle problem causing a marked pitch down effect under power. I see you have taken the landing wheel off. It might be worth putting it back on and seeing if the model will ROG. I have seen vids of FF Foxes with nose mounted props doing ROGs so, if it won't lift off, it would indicate that the pitching moment is out of whack. You may be able to fix this by altering the angle of the pod.

I have a Fox still in the box and have been toying with the idea of a dual EDF set up like the Horizon guys did with one of their Blanics.

Wheel broke off, Repaired. Have launch buggy but grass was way too long and not flat grade. We were on a slight down grade. Bit both trip and pulled over, and when he went over he didn't let go. Was funny as heck. Can change the motor angle no problem. I know it cant do WOT at first, just half throttle needed till lift off.

Yep,,, the launcher definitely had a nose down attitude and I think he tripped over his own undercarriage.

Loved my FlyFly Fox.

I have a Fox 2.75S/E glider from Espirit RC. I am trying to attach the canopy. The frame is not deep enough on either end for the pins to go through. I wonder if this frame is for another model.

Did anyone run into this problem and can show me you secured the canopy?

canopy

Cant show a picture because whats left of mine after a run in with power line tower it fits in small shoe box. LOL! Where the lip on the front is I put a screw through a plastic cap( washer with flip cap) and adjusted with nut inside of fuse. Cut small slip in lip so the canopy slid under cap. The rear has a "hook" on inside of canopy that you rubber band down. Hope that helps.
