Ok xD im having a real hard time making my bird fly straight and glide straight :< it either glides in circles poorly or it flies too much to one of its side depending on the "ballast" alluminium tapes i put, i cant get a proper gliding and proper flying at the same time

G-LO,

I do apologize for the delay in getting you your wings, normally they ship within a day or two when I am here.

Just got a few sample V2s last week, really like them so far! Seem like they made some good improvements over the first bird. I'll let you guys know when I can expect the birds and extra parts in stock!

I've noticed this too and it seems that it depends on the position the wings are in when they stop flapping. Of course, I have much better luck with flying indoors both gliding and under power. It behaves more responsibly and I can better predict what it will do. The V2 seems to fly quite a bit better than the original!

No problem sky hawk. I'm glad it came. For a moment there, I was getting a delayed Kinkade attack...two emails with no response.

It doesnt depend on the position only, on full throtle it clearly goes to the right when not using ballast and going to the left when flapping slowly or gliding.
IF i add the ballast it flies a straight-is on full throtle however it goes even worse to the left when flapping slowly or gliding, i believe the wings are too different to make it work properly, wings should always be designed the same left and right, or a bit bigger gap in the left and thats something manual labor is not going to do.

That's my fault, moving the email to a different server was a giant PITA. But, it's all good now!

LA, I agree about the wings, they are all put together by hand and each one is a little different, just as each bird is a little different. I have one that will glide really nice, but flies a little crooked under power and another that flies dead straight but does the spiral glide. Wish I could combine the two of them!

I literally just got off the phone and I should have them mid-October! I'll keep you all up to date.

Just an FYI, the V1 wings and tails do fit the V2 if you need any spares. I know the first run was very limited and a lucky few got the new version from our store in France. I'm excited for the new ones to start coming in!

The V2.0 has more power, better control and flies longer. It has a pretty paint-job and is quieter. I would thus guess that not only is the LIPO more powerful, but also the motors & mechanisms seem improved ... incl. the servo function!

Thus the V2.0 is easier to fly in my tiny livingroom than the V1 [although the V1 is still easy enough].
