I took it up today, the wind was really bad. The gusts kept beating the nose down. I landed after about 4 minutes of flying. It was a bit of a thrill....

I have been thinking about getting a gauge just for the fun of it. As far as an estimate, i set my Corsair down for a take off and had to go get it 15 feet away. Just to windy to be there......

That would be a rush, flying in those kind of winds :-)

Well i took it out this morning. It was 22 degrees, cloudy and 10 miles per hour winds. I let it get a little to far out and to close to the ground. I lost it at about 3/4 throttle into the deck. It went end over end on the wings after it hit. one broken servo horn and a broken off wing. Do these things fly as well after major repairs ??

Yes!

White Gorilla Glue works wonders.



That being said, after mine had one too many ss-kickings from gravity, I replaced the fuse with a new one -- an easy way to have a Second Honeymoon.....

What prop/hub is everyone running on their stock Q? I purchased a APC 7x5 EP prop but the hub on the Q is to large for the prop. Are you running a different hub? Drilling out the prop to fit the stock hub?

Thanks in advance
