Question
EZ Star

Not sure if this is the place to ask this question

I have a Multiplex EZ Star. When I throttle up,
The plane climbs really fast even on 1/2 throttle.

What can I do to ease off the extreme climb?
Thanks

The motor power determines rate of climb. The elevator determines speed. If the plane climbs too fast, put in some down trim. This will cause the plane to speed up so if it flies too fast, cut back on the throttle and take out the down trim. It's sort of a balancing act.

1) Adjust the elevator for level flight at 50% throttle. Use the clevis for adjustment so that the trim is at neutral.
2) Rebalance the plane by moving the CG forward.

as Leo wrote - trim for half throttle. also, you can do the dive test to check CG: http://www.rc-airplane-world.com/tri...-airplane.html
