Don't blame ya, waste of servos imo. I learned to fly yank'n'bank and find they just confound me if they're not on the right stick.

I have only had one delta that had a yaw problem, SST with twin non counter rotating motors.
I added an aluminum trim tab to the vertical and about ten degrees right fixed it.

No, I have just about stopped doing videos. Tired of the criticism of non professional videos.

Very nice design. I might have to make one if I ever get those ebay parts. Been two months.

I don't think I have ever had a positive comment on a video. Several PM's telling me
what $500 camera I needed.

I have a $35 Hobby King wing cam, mounted on the bill of a visor.

I think it does a OK job. ?

This is a 1m flat sheet of DTF, no spar, just one strip of filament tape on the bottom, 165g, about 65W and we
have tried to tear it up, can't be done!! It loves wind!

your camera seems to be doing a good job at capturing all the details.

Nice wing BTW. I'm surprised at the results with a flat plate airfoil. Nice job!

Thanks.

After building so many flat planes, I am beginning to think air foils are highly over rated!

Motors should have been here Monday, but it was a holiday, so, still no motors, Done till I get
motor. All the controls are hooked up, and working properly. All the rates and expo are set.
Just a bit of rudder mix, I wiggle that damn stick anyway, so make it do something.
