Futaba trimming

The futaba is definitely a servo that trims the pilot instead of the other way around. Getting used to sudden, uncontrollable yaw. Since it was cloudy, didn't fly in space but did spend much more time at high altitude thanks to LED assisted orientation and no wind.

Figure 8's are getting smoother and even managed long hovers with just cyclic control, letting the tail yaw wherever it wanted.

Forgot to mention the magorator died during the 11/15 flights. The magorator is the most powerful flashlight in the world, a 40,000 candlepower halogen powered by 5 11Ah cells. It can stay on for roughly 5 hours.

Only the power of the magorator could prove night flying was possible before burning up $15 on LEDs. Sadly no-one has had the imagination to mass produce such a flashlight.

no wind
