My father in law (who is not an rc flyer) thought I was nuts as he hadn't even seen this plane yet. Fun stuff. Wind is supposed to be down tomorrow so may get a few flights in. Hopefully the park parking lot is plowed as there is a foot of snow out there.
lucky dog. posed to be rain, snow, then snow with some rain all mixed up with 20+ mph winds and my luck its my weekend off at work.

Pulling to the Right

When I harrier my 51" Slick there is almost no pull to the right, but when harriering my 71" Slick it pulls big time almost wants to make a right turn. I am using a Motrofly 4325 - 380 and a 19x10 Xoar Prop. Anyone else have this issue.

Mine pulls too. I can do beautiful wide harrier turns with only using the elevator.

It is all the Pilot!JK My 51 pulls to the right hard & my 71 does not! I have the opposite issue. Is it possible that the tension on your Pull are not exactly the same?? I have never really thought about it. I have just adjusted to it

Nothing to do with pull/pull, I believe it's the "torque from the prop", my 71 electric has quite a bit more power and torque than the gas thing you are running therefore the greater pull to the right

trim it in harrier flight, then see what it does on the wing and vertical climbs.

I use to play with the 51 and make turns using the trim, no overactive thumb and wing rock.

I am getting my first 30CC Size Electric

I will let you know my opinion after I get my 74 Edge Electric set up together. But I might not be a fair judge considering I have been battling my DLE 30CC for the first 2 Months of my 71 Slicks life!! Motor is at Warrantee right now and hopefully i will be able to have a better taste in my mouth for Gas as well.
