Thanks Sandman!! I updated the plans in the first post for the carbon flat. Since she was already put together, I simply slid the carbon flat through the fuse along the trailing edge of the wing and attached the ends to each boom. Made a big difference. The 2-3 deg of down angle on the motor solved the excessive climb at high throttle. The second flight this evening was sweet, zero trim, 50% rate on ailerons and 85% on the elevator, both with 30% expo.

Let me know how she does if you build one,

Mike

You're welcome!! I dialed the elevator rate down to 75% and turned the aileron rate up to 60%. I took her out for a toss this evening and she flew like a dream and looked awesome in the air. She doesn't have the prettiest roll/spin but not bad.

Good luck with the build and have fun at the electric event.

Mike
