A very weird day at the strip. Fail for Big Bird, but FMS Alpha foamie RC jet gets a 2nd test!


My RC conversion of £13 foamie FMS Alpha jet gets its 2nd test flight after a very strange day at my local strip. Suggestions after the first pretty unstable maiden were tail heavy, but my research said it was nose heavy, hence moved electrics back a bit, added 2g of lead in the tail, plus a little more downthrust. This flight was much better than the first test, though maybe still needs a bit more downthrust? Messing about with cheap foamies can be frustrating at times, but it's a lot of fun and good learning experience!
