I have been keeping an eye on this plane and your video is a nice example of good flight in significant wind with a rookie (by your definition) at the controls Nice video and great job working her out! I enjoyed it.

It's nice to have a plane that you can have confidence in putting it up in the wind. My VA is back together and ready for another go-around.

Great video! I don't have a VA yet, but I have flown one and it does tend to tempt a guy to try stuff he would not normally even think of, and then make whatever happens look like it is exactly what he had intended to do. I have watched a number of videos of the VA I can't get over the way the air always seems to be really thick around the VA. Almost like it is a fish swimming in water. A great design!

Maiden, 3 flights total, on GF mode, 1st on low rates and the last on high rates, all good. Basic rolls, loops, KE, etc. very nice no surprises airplane. practically stands still slowly nosing into the wind. I'll try her on 3D rates tomorrow. Mine likes battery more towards the rear. Best hands off inverted of any plane I've ever flown. The guys really like it too. Winner!

You may find it is not responsive to shifting the battery - aft is fine for about any flyer.
The AS3X 'trims" for the attitude you select- right side up upside down
THEN changes direction if you ask it to . basically it just tries to stay put till you change direction / heading
The heli guys with flybarless setups have use this type band aid for a few years now. It's great - it does not fly the plane -it just stays where you put it

Sounds like the AS3X is a heading hold gyro?

With the battery more forward it took quite a bit of elevator to keep it from nosing down at 1/2 or better throttle at level flight. Re-centered the trim and moved the battery back a 1/2 inch, much better.

the basic elev trim likely real issue
mine is set straight on and flies nicely - also like the book says avoid "trim's" in the tx

Almost pulled the trigger but just couldn't, they only had one and it was hanging from the ceiling. Might have to get a eagletree unit.
