CG is set at the rearmost recommended position as I've found it's needed for landings and the nose dropping is significantly worse if it's much more forward. I flew it once today 1-2mm behind the recommended rear position and it's didn't seem to help much on the nose dropping or with the landings. It's typical delta behavior so I'm not surprised and a rudder here would greatly help but I understand it not having one at this size.

I took the phazor up for its Maden flight yesterday and wow what a wicked plane
I love the bungee as a 1st timer with one I took about 30ft back and zoom of it went
So easy it flys great smooth and quite fast for its size and loud lolol
It can go vertical easy this a great edf and is a real eye candy one as well the people at the field really liked it I can't wait for more flights to come

OK, I'm going to try imyohero's little innovative setup.

As you can see by the pictures, today I played with the lathe a bit and this is what I got so far

That looks slick. I like that you installed the skids over the control linkages on the bottom of the wing.

Ya those skids make perfect covers! I kinda over did the pushrods a little, I used sullivan golden clevises soldered to 256 threaded rod and some heat shrink to keep em closed and metal horns.

thanks for that after that flight i was racing my mates mpx funjet both on 4cell
and both the same speed

i find the bungee launch quite easy since i use mode 3 on the sticks

yeah my old man did the filming hes 60

yeah the landing was good and smooth i was quite happy with it

but this edf is lots of fun i must of got a good motor as it does good vertical flight
...

i love how you built yours i wish you sold the intakes they are very
