wé, tu as des débattement étranges...
tu en a plus à piqué qu'à cabré...Pour corriger ton soucis de cabrage?
Sinon, tu as mis un peu d'angles à ton moteur? (anticouple et piqueur)
as-tu le même phénomène en plané pur?

Yup, you have strange rates...
More down than Up...
Did you give angles to your motor (Down + right thrust line)
Is it the same powerless?

One thing I see is that the angle of the feet are not 15 degrees. He will not turn unless they are at least 15 degrees off horizontal. Yours appear to be less than 10, probably around 7 degrees. Also check your CG.

I have included on of my early Flyguy drawings. Note in the lower left, the cant of the sides and the feet; 15 degrees. You need this to turn. I have also found that differential thrust will make him turn with two motors.

44 oz is a little on the heavy side but he should fly well. I've had up to 50 oz. The heavier they are the more susceptible they are to landing damage.

Flyguy62 Version 3 Prototype

Hi all. I've been playing with different features on Flyguy and exploring hover capability. Out of these efforts I have found a configuration that really gets Flyguy to perform the full compliment of aerobatic maneuvers.

This is a platform for an advanced flyer and is more complicated to build and fly. Beginners and intermediate flyers should still stay with the Flyguy Version 2.

What I don't like are the two exposed props of the two motors. I have always liked the added safety of the prop enclosed in the body, especially because Flyguy is such a kid magnet.

The two motors have differential thrust tied to the rudder stick which can generate significant yaw allowing hammerheads, 4 pt and slow rolls.

There are only two horizontal plates; the chest plate and main body plate. The main body plate is a combination of the old arm plate and the center body plate.

The body is 16 inches wide at the main body plate and 12 inches wide at the chest plate. The feet are hinged at 18.5 inches from the tip and not canted as on other Flyguys. The sides are still angled at about 15 degrees. A foam mannequin head is used up front and houses the batteries.

The two motors are HK 2200 kv with 45amp ESCs and two 3s2200mah batteries. Servos are Hitec HS-225MG.
