I don't know if I'm in the correct forum, but there's a lot of knowledge here applicable to a first time RC plane controller. Thanks for all of the great information! I'm looking forward to making my 3rd flight after cruising the forum for ideas on fixes. So far, I'm having a lot of fun and am very impressed.

Transmitter: DX8e (my first digital transmitter)
Plane: Horizon Carbon Cub S2 (my first plane)

That’s a terrific plane for beginners. I still fly mine. In fact I flew it this AM with a buddy. We tried some formation flying since it’s such a docile flyer. But, it gets touchy (floaty) in the wind.

I ended up pulling the Supplied radio gear and installed an 8010T RX with my DX8 Gen 2 TX. So, no more SAFE or AS3X. But, I’ve eliminated any radio glitches.
