XK A430 - Too Far


XK A430 6am flight (5 min 36 sec)


Put it simply , rather than giving the clevis one turn of up , I gave two turns !
Now the XK A430 was climbing ..

I have gone back one turn , + the battery was @ 60% after almost five and a half minutes . ( I was flying slow )

3D Mode

Did I mention the ailerons were a little sensitive ? They are !
For this morning I had 50/50 ( Rates/Expo ) on the ailerons . Touchy as ...
Seriously , I only needed a few mm of gimbal movement to use the ailerons .
@ 100% rates , I suspect even Superman would have problems . ( Might explain the 7 seconds in 3D - first flight )
I have backed off to 35% rates and was it 60% expo for the next flight .
Oh and if you fly too slow , it does tip stall . ( Maybe those Ailerons ? )

6G Mode
It can fly so slow - And the gyro stops the model from stalling out on you .
Once trimmed out , this might be a really fun little plane .

I was up early , cos we have had lots of wind with more wind predicted !
