The Maiden Flight


Well, that was about the scariest maiden flight ever! I managed to get her back with absolutely no damage, but clearly there needs to be a some more tuning to get her flying right.

FPV Flight


The re-maiden, some months later...

Added 5mm of reflex to the wings and it flies much better. We just need to do something about that annoying porpoising in 2D mode.

I turned down the elevator throws and that solved the issue with porpoising. Apparently planks are very sensitive to elevator input.
