first what transmitter do you have? If you have a radio that has mixing you need to set up elevons and typically one elevon goes in ch 1 and the other goes in ch 2 and esc goes in ch 3. then mix chan 1 and ch 2. aileron is ch 1 and elevator is ch 2. now this is the typical setup. yours may vary pending which transmitter you have
Cuz tooling around is just not my style of flying. Full stick and full travel control surfaces.

this is a very fun plane. lively would be an understatement. heads up on the steep smooth spin. it is like a flat spin but with the nose pointing down and it looks like it is spinning in the shape of a cone. if you do find yourself in that situation, i found that down elevator always got me out of it. happened to me while not having enough speed while climbing. i did it on purpose just to see the slow flying characteristics of the plane myself.
give it a little more than half throttle and launch by holding the middle of the cockpit area with your thumb and middle finger around and the index finger against the top of the nose to stabilize it to get it in the air easily. i tried doing the side-wing-toss and had a tough time getting it in the air.
Nothing said I had to crash
