Okay, so more weight in the nose and larger winglets? Alright, I'll give that a try.

Not really just in the nose, maybe just a tad more nose heavy , but all up weight heavier.

Lite planes in general get blown around, they are nice to land and launch and thats the only draw backs, but on the heavy zeph they fly more stable in windy conditions.

just a note to say.. I bought some of those aero naut props for a change and well.. while my hk modified ones do the job perfectly, given the price diff.. i think ill just get aeronauts like everyone else :P
so nice when it's all cut properly out of the box. also the plastic of the prop itself is a lot stronger

Bought them at a local shop, but count about 2.5x to 3x the price of HK set (which is $7.6 if my memory still works)

try VirtualDub, it's free and just fine for basic edits. Don't need all the fancy effects (although it has some stuff for that but it's quite limited).

Kyle why are your batts above the airfoil? this makes for a sloppy flyer too.
Your lateral ballance and obstructions are the issue.

I really need to find some free editing software

Kyle I just like a clean build, trim the inboard part of the elevons,clip thos nasty controll rods before you impale yourself with them,lower your rates,get the expo gone , then ballance laterally.
You can move the bats back to sink them more, add a tad of weight to hit the cg,it flys better a tad heavy anyhoo.
I am most impressd with Bauregards Zeph nose on his for ultimate in handling.

If trappy is an awesome builder than I am a rocket scientist,lol
