Do you hold the elevator all the way down or do you just try to hold it part way down? It's obviosuly easier to hold it steady if you've got it all the way down...

I does not take full elevator to do a nice harrier. It might take full elevator and some throttle to get the right AOA....but once you get it where the plane likes it, you can ease off the elevator a bit and generally work the throttle with small elevator corrections to keep it nice and pretty. Too much elevator in my experience causes wing rock......along with abrupt throttle inputs.

Thanks! That's very helpful for me because I do battle wing rock and I usually hold full elevator.

Now I've got some things to work with as I practice over the weekend (although the wind is foercasted to be horrendous tomorrow).

Cool stuff!

I'm about to go fly mine along with my 3DHS 34 foamie and my DLG!!! Just waiting on packs to charge and for it to warm up a tad. Wahooo can't wait!

And good luck to the dude who's going to maiden his today! I was nervous as heck but the plane was rock solid. Required absolutely no trim at all. Go with the stock setup on low rates and you can't go wrong.

I'm right at 45 degrees of elevator throw in both directions.

All this talk about wing rock makes me want to go ahead and ask for more details about what can cause it. Maybe Harrier 101 I have noticed that in my upright harriers I have LOTS of wing rock on this plane. When I go inverted it magically disappears. I have less up elevator throw than some because I screwed up when I set up the plane so it physically can't go past like 37 degrees or something. I'll have to check it again to verify but I haven't felt like it has hurt my flying so I have just kept it that way.

On a side note I did manage my first ever smooth harrier landing today Took me a few times to decide how to approach it so it doesn't bang down so hard.

Shane that just looks like you need a motor box and cowl. I fixed mine in about 30 min.

The right side is jacked up all the way down past the wing tube... Maybe on a cold day I'll look more into it.... In Texas that may never happen!

Oh man... that really sucks dude. I feel for you. It always sucks WAY worse when it's some sort of equipment failure. My 42" Slick maiden lasted about 45 seconds because of a receiver failure. I got mine put back together but the damage was far less than yours.

Sorry to see that, ADC still sells the fuse, and it is in stock.

Looks like you saved all the fuselage wood pieces, so with a motor box kit and CA the fuse back together you should be good to go.

BTW, ADC has the fuselage available:
