mdugas, I must apologize!
It just came to me that you may be seeing something more then me ,as far as the place where Im flying. I just assumed that you ment because it was so tight. Was there other factors that I should know about? thanks for all the help.

Thanks everyone!

So guess what! I finaly got this thing to fly and man was it nice! This is some of my best flying yet! the role response is great compared to the easy trainer! still a bit tale heavy, I noticed that if the battery shifts at all during flight that the plane gets bad quick. I wish I hadnt ordered 3 stock batteries when i got it but, I didnt know any better. A heavyer Batt would be perfect.
Sadly the front landing gear is still very slopy and attributed to me crashing it on take off the very next day. of course there where lots of other factors (mostly me) that caused it but hey, atleast i didnt blame it on the wind this time.
Im editing the video now so I let you guys know when I get something to gether.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELP ME DURING THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You guys are all so nice and helpful. Im sure I wouldnt be where Im at now if not for all the help and support. Thanks and Blue Sky Every One!

In previous post you said you repaired landing gear with hangar wire if you haven't already done so that needs to be replaced. Get some music wire from the local hobby shop or drill rod from a hardware store and that will help with flimsy landing gear much stronger material. In the crash video it looked like an aft CG ( tail heavy ) that is much worse than nose heavy. If you're having problems with batteries moving around get Velcro or something to hold it in place you can't have a battery moving screwing up the CG during flight. The reversed servo direction is an easy mistake but something you can't overlook before each flight check everything before taking off as if you were actually in the plane flying it. When you're learning you need the most open space you can find so you're not trying to avoid obstacles while still learning how to avoid obstacles.

If you weren't on the other side of the country I would help with fixing anything you needed and put you and the trainer cable and help you out. Don't give up once you grasp the concept of what your plane is actually doing and get it figured out it will turn into a relaxing fun hobby you can enjoy.

Mdugas.
Hey Man. Good to hear from you. I just think we don't have the skills yet for this plane. You really have to bring that thing in perfect to avoid damage. I'm actually waiting on motionrc to stock this plane and parts before I repair or replace it. It can sit on the shelf till then. I don't have any clue why this gear is so easy to damage. What makes it diffrent from the bigger model of the same plane. Idk? Since we last spoke I have had a lot of luck with the AXN Clouds Fly. That has been my work horse. I also have had some edf's up. Have you tried any other planes?

I tried music wire my self but I bent that too! to be fare my landings were more of a crash though.
Ive flown the Blitzworks F-35 backpack jet. Its a 50mm edf. I also have the blitz F-22 but havent got that one out yet, its also a single 50mm edf. I have flown the Roc Hobby f-16 which I think is a 60mm and that thing is super fun. Rolls like the real thing!
Having more fun with Belly Landers. I still stugle with ROG's. Im always a nervous wreck when i try a take off from the ground. But Im getting there.

I cant wait to hear that you have landed that TWIN! which model F-14 is it? ARTTECH?
I defently want to add a F-14 to the fleet.

I can mail you some music wire if you want? No charge. I have plenty.
