51 Slick maiden
My plane officially rocks!!
I maidened too at the golf course. EXTREMELY LONG RUNWAY. I am camping btw. Harrier, ke, snap, loop, insane vertical! It rocks!
Video will upload when I get home.
Even dad said-HOLY CRAP that thing is floaty!
I'm login it!
Just a lot of wing rock in harrier.
How do I go about fixing this?
Motrofly fly came down cooler than my motor I've had. Insane vertical-I was too scared to even go full throttle

My dad likes it though he says that it's his favorite plane that I've had so far.

LOVE the landing at 2:10...

My 2cents would be to find a larger area to fly in until you get used to the plane. Balsa carries more speed and energy than foam so it is not a good idea to fly in such a tight space for the first flights. Also you say you hate the wire landing gear but they saved you some money from the pancake landings.
The foam wheels will roll off of the hub when sliding sideways on a hard surface.

I have PMed Dan with an offer of some decent used Gens Ace, 1800mAH packs that I have. They have just a tiny amount of puff, but still work fine....and I have four of them he can have....

Edit...he didn't want them....

Nice, wing rock is either setup or your using to much rudder, 51 slick is a harrier machine

Sometimes when i dont use a traditional full landing approach, things dont look pretty. A longer approach allows me to adjust and setup for touchdown.

I find that every new plane I fly I have wing rock, after about 50 flight it harriers like a pro, so I think the more you fly it the less wing rock you get, also doing the above things may help.

He's from the other side of the state. Already asked him about it...

Yeah there are a few clubs around here but it's useless for me to join them until I can just drive myself there, because my dad will have to bring me, just to fly at a field for 20 minutes to an hour? Nah...

Thanks Skippy, way to throw me under the bus. Just kidding. I pm'd him a few weeks ago and we figured out that we are about 2 hours away from each other.
