I have recently experienced problems on take offs with this plane, that is left wing down and cartwheel into the ground immediately after lifting off, although this plane has always had a tendancy to loop left I have usually managed to level it once in the air. I have tried various solutions like increasing run out, right rudder etc but still same result, I cannot understand the reason as I have had quite a few successful take offs and flights with this plane which will fly very scale like once in the air! I am wondering if one prop is not spinning at same speed or some other difference in torque that has suddenly changed for some reason, really at a loss to know what to try next as I am running out of bits to repair!
Any ideas?

Has anyone tried to connect HobbyEagle A3 to a 6 channel receiver when all channels are in use ie Ail,Elev,Thro,Rud,Gear,Flaps
I understand that the A3 needs a power supply to the mode connection which could be taken from the bind socket on the rx using only the feed and ground connections
As I understand from the A3 manual, if the mode connection is not assigned to a channel on the tx then it will work on the pre-set mode for mode 1 position which could be the normal or even auto balance mode? which is the one I want to use
Anybody tried this set up or similar, I have used the A3 on a 4 channel plane and assigned the two spare channels for mode and gain adjustment on the tx, I do like the straight forward set up of the A3 particularly the program card which is very useful when the laptop is at home!
Any comments appreciated

This plane looks nice but is a handful to take off it is very twitchy and has a tendency to veer off and cartwheel, I have tried various corrections but crashed many times. Once in the air it fly's OK I think the problem is the landing gear which is too small for this quite heavy plane, I am going to modify this with a more robust wire type with larger wheels as the FMS gear is very fragile and breaks easily on heavy landings and even mild take off crashes, I thinks the plastic mountings for the gear and wing struts are too small and made of brittle plastic which breaks easily
Has anyone else had similar problems with this plane? I don't want to give up on it as it looks good in the air and is otherwise well constructed and scale looking but can't afford to keep replacing these expensive parts
