Then loose the pads and it shows it true to be tail heavy. Just if you use it without pads the little nubs put dents in the wings that I have to iron out with my iron...lol
If that was my set up. I wouldn't even maiden it with it sitting on the CG machine like that. My unijet if it yawed back to much would sit on the tail, but rolling down the runway it was fine. And it flew fine once it was airborn.
The Catch To Me Is That If Your Going Up Hill You Lose The Steering Control At Mt Flying Club That Could Cost You The Plane, Theres A Big Fence Waiting To Catch You.The Plane Weight 7lbs. Now, But Also I'm Still At Almost A 1:1 Ratio, Fan And Motor Pushing 6lbs Of Thrust 1340 Watts. This One Will Have To Be Flown Off Asphalt For Sure My Club Has A Turf Field
