Thanks for your suggestions.
The bad things about these flights were the fact that I couldn’t keep the plane flying. For some reason the plane nose went up and the plane lost speed and altitude.
Next time I’ll try to place the battery a little bit forward or set the elevators a little bit down and use rudder to turn the plane.
The plane weight is about 800 gram with lipo. I use a Turnigy 2200mAh 3S 20C Lipo Pack (185 gram) andTurnigy 2200kv Outrunner Motor.


Yeah might be a little tail heavy and like the others said try reversing your prop.


If you were inside your plane... You would never crash.

That foam block on the back may look okay in the air, but it's breaking up your main thrust avenue and killing your output. You'll prob get a couple of ounces back just by cutting it off.

Edit: From your video it doesn't sound like you're getting the full RPMs out of your 2200kv motor. Have you calibrated the throttle endpoints on your ESC?

I've calibrated the throttle as it is instructed in the ESC manual.

I think your problem is solved. Go fly and report back with video.
