It flies!

And, well, its not the perfect plane with no mix and flies 10's.... alas.

BUT.... it really does fly well. I used a 22X12 APC and although at times I liked the pace it was zoomy? Meaning, pace was good add throttle, a little more and ten whoosh it would accelerate. yes, I know, I need a throttle curve etc but I want to play with a couple of props first.

I got 3 decent flights in but realized that a swept gear is not a good combo on this plane. I have since replaced swept with straight gear.

I really cant say too much, I have trimming and mixing to do.

As most Pentathlons, it wants to roll onto its canopy in knife edge and it barely goes to the canopy in downlines.

Chuck,
What gear did you use to replace the swept gear? I have the same issue with my Pent.

Thanks,

Mike... whoever made the aquila offered a carbon gear option.

Northeast aerodynamics I think.

Can anyone help with the location of the c of g for the Pentathlon Evo please?. I'm currently building a Pentathlon and hoping to power it with the OS 33GT.

Many thanks Bob V
