V911 HLG @ the field

3D printed V911 HLG at the field (6 min 3 sec)

Lots of issues , some of which which will be dealt with with the F949 HLG build.

A) CG is too far back = Easy to correct , just move the wing back .
B) The elevator control arm is in the worst possible location
C) I smacked the ground with the V911 HLG and nothing broke .
D) Flying weight = 55.60 grams with a Nanotech 1s 300mAh battery . Without batt is around 47.3 grams
E) That wing is warped , had a built in right turn that needed a lot of left rudder to correct . I saw it happen when I put on the laminating film . And since then have tried to take out he warp , tried !!!

Its 10 grams heavier than what I would have liked . Just for giggles I weighed my R1 , an all depron build and my first glider build in over 3 Decades . Came out at 50 grams less battery , so I guess the V911 HLG is not all that terrible .
Oh well , hopefully some ideas will cross my design board by the time the F949 flight board gets here .
