F-86 50mm EDF CG and Throws

On the F-86 50mm EDF.
Is the CG correct and what are the throws for ELE and EIL. Set by manual and not enough and crash. Gave it more and TOO much and crash. Therefore what is the throws that someone is using and confirm CG. Acts like it is tail heavy.

That sounds like something that should be added to the CG database page.

Cracked up my A-4 something terrible this weekend. I think that my elevator servo locked up and it went into an uncontrolled snap roll and crashed.... Surprisingly I think that it can be repaired! It was too much to mess with yesterday but I am going to bring it back this week. the wing is fine but the nose and fuse are crunched. The Fan and other electronics are working just fine. So later on I will get to it and try to put it back to flying condition. Not bad for over a years worth of flying..

gooniac,
Bummer. Surprising about the fan though. My fan is usually the first to go after a crash.

As soon as I saw it was going down I killed the throttle...That may have saved it...

Dude, ditto for me. I did a better job than you and left only one blade on the rotor from a bad launch with full throttle. Seem to have it worked out now and running a 6 blader fan from Don with 30amp esc.
