The torque does pull it left but I've managed to counter that with the rudder trimmed right. It was fairly windy that day when we shot the aerial video and Snoops handled it really well, very stable and surprisingly not too twitchy with my expo at 25% on pitch and roll. A friendly face at the field explained to me that Snoopy probably provides a great deal of stabilization to help with that. In my early tests without Snoopy, he was near uncontrollable. Now that he's pretty dialed in, I'm going to try push him to see how acrobatic he can get. Will update with my findings!
Thank you! I really wanted to keep the proportions as true to the comic/cartoon as possible but wasn't sure if it was even remotely possible without stabilization or multiple rotors. I took a lot of inspiration from all the designs I found on the web. ^_^
I was hoping to make one that was simple to build and was light on the electronics. I'm considering building one that is a pusher and removing the rudder to make it ultralight and that way I can just catch him for landings. :-D
