Black "D" Simple Dollar Tree Delta Wing


Built this simple delta wing in about 2 hours based on a suggestion from Balsa or Carbon and I think I actually messed up the build as its not quite the same as his wing. However, my plane seems to fly "ok".

The winds were about 20 mph at the start of the session. By the end of the second battery, winds picked up considerably. 20-35 and gusty. It was time to quit for the day when the wind pushed the plane right into my car's windshield!

Based on the CG calculator I thought I had the CG in the right spot but it seems to want to pitch up when I throttle up... but when I cut throttle completely, it floats and glides slowly to the ground.... any idea what's up?
