That video is OK, with none of the breakup that plagued the one featuring the model.

Those pilots look almost good enough to get a job in the RAAF

Yes. I must admit that although the Roulettes fly very precisely the T-birds would be way more impressive and spectacular.

Today I tried an experiment.
I determined where I like the stabilizer gain for slow and fast flight.
I then programmed a inversly proportional THR->GAIN mix with those endpoints.
Worked great! Now I have higher gain for slow flight and low/no gain for fast flight automatically controlled by throttle.

Had a second motor wire failure today. The motor wires are very tiny, thinking maybe G-forces fatigued them. Fix was to seperate out of the bulky wire bundle and hot glue connector to fuselage for stress release........time to push to fail again......luv this hobby!

This is a great build!! I am in the middle of emptying my shop, painting walls and putting everything back into my shop. Actually a great undertaking and it has forced me to purge and organize things better. This one is on my list after I return from the Patch event.
