Fred,
Sure was...4s in both. Matter of fact, same lipo brand, size, mAh.....
I am waiting on another good day, and some free time from work, to get out and try it again. The first one...the anniversary edition just flew so darn well. Now my Maxjet one is flying perfect, so I have to figure this Airfield one out. I'll post my results of the next flight attempt.

I just bought this plane and finished the build last night. This would be my first EDF and second plane after a PKZ Spitfire MkIX I bought a month ago. We'll see how the maiden goes this afternoon!

might want to check the clevises, maybe too much wiggle there.

CSI, did you figure it out? Mime feels off too, and it doesn't track well at all... Where's the CG for you guys? I do a loop and it just comes out in a different direction. My other plane tracks perfect so what gives? Do you guys have the wings with a little diehedral or a little negative or perfectly flat? My wings are a tiny bit tilted down, so are my elevators. It's almost flat, might be it? Can you guys check?

Mine tracks on rails and will fly hands off. It sounds like you may have an issue where your elevator(s) are off a bit. Are they adjusted flush with one another?

Hi Tdab, thanks for the reply. Yeah, they are both centered and moving the same. Can you let me know how your elevators are trimmed, are they completely flat or was a little up trim needed? Can you tell me where your CG is? Thanks!

Mine has about 1-2mm of "up" trim in the elevators. I also built in a little " \ / " into the horizontal stabs when I glued them on. It is very slight. I will get the exact CG later today.

My CG is about 1/4" back in the cheater holes...See pic for clarification. Hope you work it out.

Man... 4 of us flying in formation is awesome fun. We had a mid air crash yesterday though... too far out and couldn't tell which of the two blue angels was closer and which far. Both touched and then the whole front shattered to pieces! Both planes dropped down. Same old story, have to buy a new fuselage ($20) and saw off the front to replace it, doesn't get any better than this, these planes can take a beating!
