Finally got around to repairing extra #5, I think it turned out ok the covering is a little difficult to work with because of its age but it will look fine in the air, I got a new pilot in it as well, unfortunately the evolution 10gx has to wait

went to a scale contest this past weekend at the EPRC field, these are some of the planes that were there, i wish the video's were better but an i-phone six only takes ok video.

I felt a little bad cutting Grover in half... I think he looks good though

Built this flying wing over the past two days it didn't cost much, but it doesn't fly well I am thinking it is tail heavy the power is equivalent to an e flight power 15, flight one hand launches great plenty of power but it deals like the control throws are double what's nesicary, resolution program in 70% Alston rates and 50% elivator, 2nd flight I am flying along on my second pass and it seems like it is horribly unstable, still too much control i tone them down 10% each try again, 3rd flight I don't have enough elevator I bring it in and clip a winglet on a bush, solution must be tail heavy? I have rocks I add 3 to the compartment and bring the rates back up 10%, flight 4 the rates are good I am not running out of elevator but the over controlling rendancy is back, solution tape a bunch of rocks to the nose if it is tail heavy this should work all of my stuff is at home the cg moved forward 1/2-3/4 of an inch in seems stable then it rolls i throttle back and it pulls a loop, broke the prop on the last rough landing,

What could the problem be?
I programmed in expo
I would really like to get this flying if at all possible it is built according to Divinity 2 plans here on rcg
Could the size motor I have be causing this? It is overpowered
I thought it could be controll rod flex but they are fairly stiff
The stall type tendencies at higher speeds are what worries me the slow speed handling is ok

Bad day out flying, lost signal on the third pass of the field, it went to full throttle, turned towards me and the other people at the field, climbed out to around 300-350' flipped on its back and dove full speed at the ground, I missed one of the vehicles out there by about 3', and pieces were scattered around a hundred yards I found a wheel cap at the field gate, the tank looked like it had been hit by buckshot.

Recovered:
2 pushrods
1 clunk for a tank
Landing gear & wheels& hardware
2 wing bolts

I am thinking about my next scratch build (for glow power) which is probably a month or two off but i am trying to think of profile airplanes, I would prefer the wing be removable in one or two Peaces two if the wingspan is larger than ~55", and I am not interested in a fazer or fun 51 I have the equivalent plane in my something else, hopping there are some really interesting plans or an interesting build thread they would like to share
