The model shots never dwell on the transitioning phase of the flight.

What kv are the motors? 6 cell, they must be rather low or it would break the sound barrier.

I got CL-84, but now it is stored in the hangar, the reason is that it is almost not possible to turn.
The controller in FF keeps the wings level so it affects the aileron commands the turn radius is about 150-200m.
Appreciate if someone can share his FF experience.
Thanks

That doesn't sound good. Even with an auto-level feature the TX should take priority over the airplanes controller sensors.

Sounds like you are screwed if you stay with that controller. You can try some old tricks that the flight controller will still try to fight. Shorten the aileron horns on the ailerons. Or lengthening the servo horns if they use a wire to move the ailerons. Shortening your TX sticks may also help.

Before you do anything mechanical, just max out the TX output throw, volume, endpoint, or whatever it is called in your TX.

While I do not have direct experience with their flight controller, I do have a friend with their CL-84 similar model. They do not want you getting those models upside down or doing aerobatics with them. The CL-84 could probably physically do it if not for the FC limitations. The XC-142 might not survive the attempt. I know this from my own design XC-142 model which has tumbled (and crashed) many times.

They are just trying to keep you from crashing and while they might have gone a little overboard, you need to accept that this is a difficult model to keep in one piece. The scale proportions are marginal on directional stability in forward flight, and it's a VTOL as well. it's not a sport model. Not by a mile.

Hi
Any idea of flight time we can expect ?
Do you think i can add FPV system ?

Most likely 8 to 9 minutes without FPV gear. From the looks of the transition FPV might be disorientating.
