    Oww! Maybe a neck strap and one of those balance bars could help with the top heavy problems and keep things under better control....

    It was on a strap....that was sorta the problem as the strap hooked to radio and way to far below center of gravity, LOL I need to move the strap up higher between the radio and ground station monitor to balance better

    Took a small fleet to a different spot today. There were race gates. This means I "HIT" the gates LITerally. Gate 1 Hellbender -1 motor -1 ESC -1 led strip. Who let the smoke out? Who, who, who, who? Gate/Prop strike into ESC, then someone yelling "SOMEONE IS ON FIRE"... Being the only one in the air at the time, and watching a screenfull of grass, Kinda wondered how bad this was going to be. Got off easy.

    Well... the wing was trying to imitate a bird and tried to flap... but all that did was put the plane into a nose dive.

    HobbyKing Navy Cub

    No pictures cause I have it all fixed, but just as a reminder.....be sure to ALWAYS check your controls before every takeoff! I didn't and the ailerons were reversed. OUCH!

    Aww man, glad you got it fixed though. I learned that lesson with my Durafly Spitfire. How do you like the Cub? I have one of those on the way, with plans for headtracking FPV.

    Had Baby Tri #2 fall out of the air with FC power fail over the weekend. Found the crappy wires I had used on my logging device had frayed, broken, and caused an intermittent short.

    The cub is every bit as nice as HK has advertised. I have also set it up with headtracking. Here's the real kicker....this is my second Navy Cub. I lost the first one while flying fpv. My mistake. I tried to turn on the DVR on my fatsharks while flying and lost the video and consequently lost the plane. What a bummer! This new one has gps with return to home if needed. Anyway, it's a nice plane. I will be trying the maiden again tomorrow.

    Don't know if it's more a maiden or a crash but I finally managed to fly my Graupner mini P-47

    It needed 60% of expo on the ailerons to fly correctly, def not a begineer plane!
