My first attempt went very wrong. Even though it was slightly nose heavy, the flying stab was off in the up direction way too much and when it broke ground it went straight up! Tried very hard to get it under control but after about six porpoises I cut power and it nosed in. Wing survived but I am rebuilding the fuse right now. Going to put a wing incidence meter on both the wing and stab first this time with both at 0 degrees.
Oh NO! So sorry to hear your first flight went poorly. Don't feel bad, you're in good company...remember MY first landing? XD
It is hard to judge the incidence of the H-stab due to its inverted-V installation. You SHOULD be able to use the TIP edge as a true reference for measuring relative to the wing. Hit me up if you have any questions.
