Ok so i finally figured it out ! Your not going to believe this one...
The trimming issue... So i balance it out at approx. 5 1-4"... I take her up and get it tracking pretty good other than 2 clicks right rudder and 3 clicks up elevator.... Flew for about 2 minutes TAKING IT EASY.... On my maiden i went easy and started getting the itch to see what it can do....anyway, testing her out for 2-3 minutes and still straight as arrow. Poptops, walls... Snap rolls... And now she feels weird again ! Needed up elevator... Thinking my servo was not centering right like people were saying. I immediatley safely landed her. To find out the lipo was sitting about 2-3 inches from the wingtube with the velcro sitting on the side if the fuselage !!! Man did i get lucky.... I am convinced the factory velcro strap came loose on my maiden and the lipo moved without me noticing. Unreal... I installed REAL velcro straps and flew it like i stole it ! STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW. I want to thank everyone who helped out with this problem... Glad its over !

Did you put velcro on the battery tray as well as strapping the battery down? Planes of this size require both The velcro on the tray usually needs to be CA'd down I've found as well.

Yes i did... I dont know what came with yours but the velcro that came with mine seems like a type of 'plastic ?' I now use a real "fury " 3m velcro... no problems..

Glad you got it figured out....sorry to mis-diagnose on the servo centering...but I still know why I personally use 7955's on mine....I never would've guessed your pack was sliding around......Lucky for you that you didn't get any really good blenders or pop-tops....right birk??

Now you can enjoy Yank.

Hey Buzzed,

What camera/strobe setup are you using? Also, on that last shot, is that a front-sync or a rear-sync?

It's just a simple program mode flash. No fanciness whatsoever. But it did turn out cool!

I had a plane that flew two 5000mah packs once. It flew fast and flew forever, but it was heavy and wouldn't 3D well. So I sold it.
