I've built a ton of them, but never had one snap roll on me unexpectedly. Sounds like maybe your CG is too far back?

Hi All,

First of all I want to thanks all of you for all the info shared in this post.

I'm a new user, even if I lurk this forum every day :P
I'm flying 250 class racing drones and rc airplanes

Today I want to present my F22 depron airplane :P

Here is my setup:

Body: 3mm and 6mm depron (for the fuselage)
Radio: FrSky Taranis X9D Plus
Receiver: FrSKY X8R receiver (should be replaced by the D4R-II, that is 10g lighter)
Servos: 2x Hitech HS-53 6.2g
Motor: Emax 1806 2280KV (the one for the multirotors)
ESC: Emax Simon Series 12A
Propeller: Gemfan 5030
Battery: Fullpower 3S 460mAh (weight around 45g)
2mm Carbon rod on the wings
1mm steel push rod and two micro linkage stopper and control horns (around 2cm height)
A little 5mm plastic motor mount drilled by myself
Weight: 120g more or less, without battery
All parts glued with 5' Epoxy Glue

And here is a quick video of the first flight. What do you think? :P

F22 RC 3mm Depron first flight (2 min 26 sec)
