My dad likes it though he says that it's his favorite plane that I've had so far.

LOVE the landing at 2:10...

Yep, landing way tooooo fast for that plane. Need to bleed off some airspeed, make a longer Downwind to Base to Final around that oval track/field. Get it lined up farther out and let it float down with a tad of throttle on (fast idle). Practice doing it about 10 feet off the ground, flying the approaches, getting it in the right attitude, nose slightly down, coming down with just a touch of power on.

This plane will also Harrier Land nicely slowed down. I noticed it was Pitching, Porpoising when flying level. So CG off or trim off somewhat? Maybe just lack of Expo. Fly it on Low rates for quite awhile until you get the feel of this planes characteristics. Then you will love it!

Also after that first or second landing, you picked up a vibration. Either prop out of balance or rubbing cowl behind the prop. Maybe something rubbing or something cracked in Motorbox?

That is a sharp looking plane and I love the 41 Edges.

I liked what the extra wind (Isaac fringe remnants) aloft was doing to them. Slo-Mo's and that one froze in place, just hung there. Was fun. Too bad the HatCam slipped down some on Flts 2 and 3 and cutoff some Major Hard PopTops from Inverted. Had to clip out a bunch of out of frame Tumbles and PopTops from the vid...

I maidened too at the golf course. EXTREMELY LONG RUNWAY. I am camping btw. Harrier, ke, snap, loop, insane vertical! It rocks!
Video will upload when I get home.
Even dad said-HOLY CRAP that thing is floaty!
I'm login it!
Just a lot of wing rock in harrier.
How do I go about fixing this?
Motrofly fly came down cooler than my motor I've had. Insane vertical-I was too scared to even go full throttle
SMOOTH on the controls...maybe increase rudder expo like Joe suggested...also, try harrier with less elevator stick and see if you were just forcing it too hard.....a 51 will harrier like a smooth little baby if you're smooth.
