Good luck with the maiden CRYSDGT. Expect it to be sensitive to controls with those high rates on your tailerons. Use lower rates for the 1st flight or use plenty of expo. Mine doesn't have 3D throws like that even on high rates.

The control throws you showed on your video are large. Your plane will react greatly. I hope that translates better.

A couple of hours ago I tested the new model, but unfortunately I could not make the video,
(I forgot the camera's SD card), however everything went ok the model is very fast, very agile and quick in movement, all increased significantly when the wings are closed, you must have much more sensitive to a lot of experience to do damage.
I could not do other tests (such as slow flight, etc. ...) because of the wind, I preferred to stop and wait for the right conditions for doing no harm, if the weather is nice tomorrow I'll make a video and try again.
In conclusion I am very satisfied, both labor and the outcome of the flight.
Thanks to the tips of the Alpea 41 but maybe I'll still will decrease the incidence of false die.

YOU are very welcome crysdgt. I didn't fly mine today was busy with flying other planes and working on some at the field to make flyable. Here's a cool shot of me flying a minni jet in a limbo event at a EDF fun fly we had today . It's a T-45 Goshawk 50 mm edf very stable

Thanks!!
Finally today I managed to make the video despite the strong wind,
I must say that I was not bothered much in flight, the model performs very well even with the wind, the only problem I had in landing only slowing because then the wind shifted to the left and right so it was a somewhat problematic as the place to fly, however, is that a bomb has nothing to do with the F-22 I enjoyed a lot

Nice work and flying.

Great Low speed performance !

Next time try , Wings out at Hi Altitude and No motor speed
just FULL UP !

It will settle into a "Parachute" - for Straight Down Hovering.

On that rough, plowed, ground It's best to add throttle and fly out of it before
hitting the ground.

Wow, I must have unsubscribed myself from this thread some time ago. Shame on me!

Well, have to resubscribe again as get this, I will be building this bird for a fellow flyer of mine who got a 1st run kit way back in 2007! Man that pizza box was dusty!

And who knows, I may just have to build myself another one as well. Either in 100%, or smaller like Al did with my power package.

Pat, we have SO MANY models to choose from it's INSANE !

No wonder it's hard to keep up on all of them.

Then guys want to subdivide the choices by building different sizes.

Try to stay COOL down there ,

Still flying mine even tho the heat in a closed vehicle has played heck with warping the 3mm depron . It still trims out fairly stable.

Al,

I had a bunch of planes in the trunk of my car one day, and left them in there when I went to go see a movie (went flying, then hit the first matinee). I came out around Noon, and the sun had warped some of my 6mm builds.

We hit 100 officially last Friday (first triple of the year). This weekend a front is coming through and we will be lucky to see 65 on Saturday. Weird weather for sure!
