No scratches or marks on the controller. Equal force required right or left. The bird had been test flown as there are two small weight patches on the right wing and flys perfectly straight. Haven't opened the spare wing package yet. Anyway, hope your replacement arrives soon and doesn't have any problems! Aero

Hehe, nice that you and your son are enjoying the orni ^^ good video too, i will post mines when my teammate will learn how to not loose the orni out of sight and stop shaking the camera... the videos i have taken with him are a disgrace in comparison to yours, cant wait to receive the new avitron to finally make a review of old vs new, its taking too darn long...

Hey i got a replacement today, its in better conditions this one, however it still turnsstrongly to the right, ive had to add 2 alluminium tapes in order to counter the turning, do yours fly straight 100% or does it also tunes to a side? do u have any tips to solve this? the balancing alluminium tape is a bit useless because while you will be able to make it fly straight at full thortle at half throtle or gliding will actually make it turn to the other side.

Hi LA. Glad you got your new Avitron! Mine seems to have a very slight left turn in calm air but most of the time there is some slight breeze and one is moving the control stick around a lot so it is not noticeable. The glide is sort of unpredictable and you don't have a lot of control. I generally aim it before I shut down the power. I haven't done any additional adding of weight other than that which came from the factory. Good luck and have fun flying with the birds Best, Aero

i have tried to fly it today but with no much success, still very very windy around here, but from what i could see, the control is much more precise on this bird main motor, the bird has enough power to flap its wings at 20% power while the older could only at 50% aproximatelly, the new bird doesnt get stuck in air like the older used to when it was just made and never flied, the new bird sitll presents 2 stickers unfortunatelly those stickers are the birds eyes, the foam of this bird is much more elastic giving the bird much more strength on impact, other than that i still did not have found a good day for it to fly, yesterday was okay but stupidly enough i have tought today would have been the same.

The merchant is a member here, SKYHAWK. Maybe try sending him a pm. I asked him a question and it took a month to get an answer... Good luck, Aero
