Very nice flying, Chas. I didn't see it zooming a whole lot during your flight, is your motor angle OK? If the motor angle is tilted up any, that could cause the plane to want to climb without control input. I couldn't tell, did you put any sort of KF airfoil on it? Well done, either way, looked under control the whole time

Cheers,

Scott

After a more careful exam of my motor angle on this Mustang you were CORERCT in suggesting the motor angle may have been pointed up some. It was not seriously up but in consideration of the "P" factor and not being pointed slightly down and to the right, it may have contributed to a tendency to climb. I looked at it after it's maiden and a pretty tough belly landing which could have helped it look slightly heavenward . It any event it was sharp of you to suggest I ck. thanx chas

I disagree, noseheavy it will go down in to the ground if you do nothing.A bit tealheavy, it wil stay airborn if you ad a bit of power and do nothing more.

Here is one of the reasons I try slightly nose heavy in my Maiden flights. Try flying in this !! ha chas
