Estrenando un motovelero (2 min 18 sec)


Hi again and thanks a lot to Thomas, Peter and Ask21 !

I flew the bird twice. First the CG was 65 from leading edge . Second flight at 70.
On landing aproach , flaps deflection is about 15 degrees. At about 1 meter altitud I deployed to 80 degrees.
During take off I use no flaps.
If so kind of you watch the video and give your opinion.
Thanks, thanks and thanks a lot.

Did you program flap to elevator comp.? Seems on landing that when deploying flaps she drops the nose.

Get her high and deploy flaps, watch her attitude and compensate with elevator trying to maintain level flight.

I would suggest you to try full trailing edge camber and reflex settings for better performance at different speeds.

Good luck!

Nice flight. IMO you need a little expo in the elevator. What is the full battery installed weight?

This is the new (11/2014) 4m Duo Discuss... Not the DG808s. So, CG will not be the same as on the DG808s. Ask FyFly for the instruction manual with the correct cg.
Plenty of power with your setup. I usually use about 1/3 to 1/2 flaps on final landing approach... And increase or decrease to better control and slow glide path.
