XK A160 with more down thrust


XK A160 with more down thrust (7 min 43 sec)



I may have previously mentioned !
That I removed the motor+ mount and rotated it 180deg for more down thrust !

Because - When I applied power , the nose would lift and the A160 would climb seriously hard over 50% throttle ..
Up to 50% was ok but once I wanted more ( like 100% ) the A160 just lifted it's nose .

Rotating the motor mount seems to have seriously improved things . I did change my elevator setting causing the A160 to climb . I did put in some down trim , but looks like I have to go back where I was .. But never the less a serious improvement .

Having solved one issue , looks like CG might be next . It does hunt up and down a bit and drag it's beehive in turns ( signs of a rearward CG )
Oh well ! Not the end of the world ( like the death spiral ) . I will have to see if I can push / make room . for the battery further forward .


Playing with the CG
