well first i was impatient and the wind was not in my favor. I knew better but couldnt resist trying to get it airborne. It traveled on the ground real good and then i made it up about two feet and nose dived with a hard left. The first problem i have is I learned how to fly my first plane (gws beaver) w/ the ss3 futaba controller which the elev and rudder are on the right stick. You seen the controller i upgraded to me and you have discussed it on my other post. Basically when i set up the elevon function on this plane the rudder control is on the throttle stick(left) and that really throwed me off. I couldnt figure out in my manual if i could switch it to the way i am use to. So i figured since i was going to try and learn elevon, flaperon, and vtail functions that i better get used to it the way it was. Even if it means learning to fly all over again. So that probably didnt help matters none either. I fixed it today and if the wind is real low tommorrow i am going to have a friend record the next flight so you guys can give me your pointers.
