What RX? Just wondering. I've had that issue before with one of the channels.

And the plane seemed to respond like 1/20th of a second too late (I ground tested and range tested the servos and they moved perfectly with my stick movements. It's definitely not a radio or servo problem. I think the surfaces were flexing. Because this only happened at high speeds. They were completely responsive in a harrier/hover and low and slow maneuvers.
yup thats epp for ya! my epp 48 extra has a rediculous amount of blowback from all the crashes and stuff. but yeah it has lots of blowback and the flexing dosent help either hut thats only at high speeds.

Ah alright, it probably isn't the RX then. But I did have an issue similar, but that was a different situation. Maybe just put CF in the control surfaces?

at least you have spinners. the only plans that have spinners for me are the nitros and my 72. and none of them match the plane.

The 300X is cool but you still need a DLG

The landing gear have ripped out and they shattered the lg mount. And I fixed it with a super strong job with epoxy (I mean really strong) and it crashed, again to what I thing was flexing in the surfaces and it slammed in. Everything was fine, except the lg mount/box is pretty screwed and when I pulled the servos out it ripped some foam on accident and the motor mount is pretty cracked.

Well, if you do the same thing with a 57, it's going to be a LOT worse. And a LOT harder to fix. You need something smaller to train on first IMO

LOL... I got the 8FG with no RXs for $250 shipped right here on the classifieds. It should be coming tomorrow

RXs are $28 a piece. I've got two already (full range, 7ch FrSKY FASST stuff), and going to need another tiny one for the Binary 900 DLG that's coming in the mail to me as well
