To start with the only flying experience I have is with a Hobbyzone Duet and lets face it that thing basically flies itself. I wanted something a bit more challenging to learn before FF2014 so I built a Nutball. I am using a lazer toys Old speedster/old fogey kit (which is are planes I am longing to fly one day) with a DX4e transmitter. I am trying to taxi the nutball get it a couple feet off the ground and set it back down like in the beginner series videos. Whats happens is it will go up, hover in a straight up and down orientation, and flip over on its back (if i am lucky and nose first if I am not lucky.) I have tried trimming it different way to limited success. I have also adjusted the push rods but again with limited success. I have better launch if I hand launch it but it will inevitably hover (is that what they refer to as high alpha?) then nose dive. If anyone can straighten me out it would be great.
