I have a similar thing on my camera. The little motor that moves the lense is so loud in video autofocusing that you can't hear anything else

what she said about 3d. all i do on the first flight are figure eights loops rolls and maybe if i feel confident a KE spin or two. if this is the case i was very confident with my 48 edge on the maiden.

I pancaked it on the second flight when the battery died and the main landing gear broke off. So that took some weight off from the nose, so that might be why he's tail heavy.

i doubt it weights that much but your yak might be CG sensitive. my extra has 3inch dubro wheel&tires on it. talk about heavy!

Pretty good flying, anyways!

Can you move your battery up? Wait...if you could've you probably already would've....

Maybe try putting a rock or two in the front... (I've done all sorts of stuff to get the CG right)
I have a pretty impressive list

You can move your battery up and add weights to the front if necessary.

Let's hear it guys I should have a flight video up sometime today or tommorow. I wore out my prop hub already (ikr!) So I'm using epoxy insteadof welders to fill in where the plastic was. I took a short video but the prop shortly came off the hub slightly and the plane fell to the ground.

Can't I at least look for my next one?
Don't want anything bigger than a 51 before I get a job

STOP USING THAT STUPID PROP SAVER!!!!
Get a collet adapter or use ZIP TIES. They work really good.
