troubles

Hi experts,
today I made further bad experions with my spit. I LOST CONTROL afetr low speed fly by and increasing the motor speed again. THE control by ailerons was unexpected . THE spit made excessive reactions. It rolled left and right with finally crashed into terrain. Might the control limits as described in manual for ailerons too excessive?

generally, PIO (pilot induced oscillation) after applying power too quickly

That is right. But seems the control limits might be a contributor...

Ralf,
Are you flying with any expo? I'm using 20% with my T9x. I'd start with 30% and see how it feels.

How much time did you have on the battery when you did the flyby and then "Punched It"? Up on power.

It sounds like you lost control from you over correcting the initial roll to the left, which was caused from the motor torque after you throttled up again.

I'm flying with expo (20%). The batt capacity was about 60 % (flying time about 5 minutes). Batt capacity is 2200 mAh.
@ Dambit: This might be the root cause. may be that I pushed the throttle too fast and overreact by ailerons. I reduced the limits now. After heavy maintenance action I will start again - NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Hey guys, does anybody have an extra set of flap clips they don't need? They don't have any available on HK US warehouse, don't know about ordering a $2 part from the international warehouse.

So does that mean the stripped bass was fully cleaned when you pulled it out of the lake?
