Twisted Hobbys 29 EPP F-22 Raptor Performance Flight


This is a fun demo flight I completed yesterday with my new Twisted Hobbys 29" EPP F-22 Raptor.

Twisted Hobbys 29” EPP F-22 Raptor Performance Flight (5 min 17 sec)

This F-22 is unlike any Raptor I've flown.. and I love it! It can be flown scale, or can perform some very outlandish aerobatics with it’s linked aileron-elevator design. Now all it needs is dual rudders to unlock its full 3D / aerobatic potential. That is a future modification coming soon.

Overall, this is probably the most fun F-22 Raptor that I've ever flown!

Love the ending of this flight video as well.

Thanks - I have one prop-in-slot that is heavier, and another one is lighter. Neither can fly like that. They are both elevons only.

Can you move your CG back? When I flew it at the recommended CG of 470mm aft from the nose, I found it felt nose heavy. Moving it back to 473-475 was much more neutral and allows for better fuselage pivoting.

My control throws are also maxed out, and I tuned in some expo to suit my preferences.
