Ron beat me to it. See his post #1031 immediately above. And let me add....

i trimmed for upright flight first, then inverted, then knife edge, and finally in a hover. For hover trimming, get the plane to a throttle setting that will let you hand launch to hover. Then... release plane and don't touch the controls. Watch which way it falls. Do this several times - make sure you are holding it reasonably close to vertical as possible. Add a small washer under the motor flange that is in the direection of fall.

Examples: In my case, mine fell toward the left wing and also to the canopy. I added 1 washer on the left wing side motor flange screw and 1 washer on the canopy (top) motor flange screw. That's all mine needed.
bestest to see if more thrust angle change (washers) might be needed.

When you have it correct, your plane will fly perfect upright, inverted and won't as readily fall out of a hover. There will be no ballooning effect from low thottle to WOT. Note - after I trimmed for upright, inverted, and KE flight; mine would slightly climb when a took a long upright high speed pass. that said thrust angle to me.

Make sure you trim in the order above - upright,...Continue Reading
