It shouldn't.
I usually find that proper CG and appropriate amount of differential are
the keys to a good responsive and axial roll.

I see you got through that path in the trees you attempted a week or two ago with the X8! I see what you mean about needing a slower plane.

I bet that this video has been posted here before but just letting you guys know how to use those rubber bands. This way, even just 2 bands are enough. Put 4 because you can to be sure but this is super secure.

That's the 1900mm version. I fly a 1900 with the improved wing from BEV.

Basically, most people have noticed the 1900 to be more smooth and able to carry more weight, but less maneuverable than the 1680mm wing.

I must say, that looks like a pretty light SW to be able to do that.

This is LFLotito, he is from Rio and spend some time in my city Fortaleza, this footage was at Beach Park, a beach close to the city. He is responsable for me to get into FPV. Go to his Youtube page and you will see a lot of more beutifull videos, here:http://www.youtube.com/my_subscripti...yL6DbBEGHTj3B4

Regarding repeating answers to questions previously asked...I'm all for the repeat questions! We have new Skywalker users joining weekly and you can't expect someone who just got their 1st Skywalker and maybe 1st FPV plane to pour through OVER 15000 posts, that's ridiculous! Sure if they have a specific issue they can do a thread search but I'm sure most of them, like us when we first started flying the SW, are very excited and want to get flying immediately so let's welcome them with enthusiasm and support

You have people like Daemon who have great videos, give the best advice, and end up repeating themselves over and over.
I would go crazy.

And do you remember how all this started?

Skywalker was in a photo that a Chinese company posted to promote their new antenna tracker. Everybody started asking questions about the mysterious new airframe instead of the tracker...

These guys had a TREASURE in their hands and didn't have the slightest idea until then!

On my very first flight with my SW, 2 rubberbands was not enough. The wing jumped out of place and with a lot of luck I managed to land my SW using only rudder. Today I always use 4 rubberbands.
