Remaidened the F80 in 30+ mph winds. It needed about 15 clicks of down just to make it over the lip. It seemed ok though hard to tell in that much wind. I hope to try it again tomorrow in more sedate conditions. I have a feeling the cg is just a little too far back.
30mph winds this afternoon. The M60 screamed til I augered in. I think the cg was a bit far back for the conditions. It was pretty squirrelly. I got it inverted and didn't realize it and the next thing it was in. Looked for the fin 10 min before I found it. I hope I can fix the plane. I don't think the wing is square to the fuse any more. Maybe it's time for a Halfpipe.
I broke the center seam on the XR again. I think PU and fiber tape and some ultracote over it will fix it. I'll take the opportunity to re hinge the elevons, maybe make new ones.
Since the last entry I've flown a half dozen times. The P-40 is again ready to maiden. The motor mount is in the Renny.
