Default lanier f-4 phantom balance

my f-4 phantom is almost ready to go,just have to balance and set the throws,, when you balance the f-4 do you balance it rightside up or upside down? the book says 6 3/4 to 7 1/4 did you guys go by the book? for the throws what would be good to start with on low rate? the low rate throws out of the book doesnt seem like much,,,, 3/8 it has a webra-50 in it now, maybe someday a ys thanks guys Larry

Default Oooooooh


Good question- Do a search for "Lanier F-4", the topic was covered pretty well-

As far as I remember, the CG from Lanier made you tail-heavy.. (Trying to remember..)

Great flying plane! I have MANY flight on mine with a YS-45 and I recently put a MACS tuned pipe on and it scoots...

The Webra should be perfect!

I remember I did end up putting my RX Batt. way back in the tail though...

Good luck and where are the pics-

Oh yeah throws... I have 1/2 on elev. (low rate) and as much as I could get on high rate- and about 3/8 on ail. low rat and full at high rate... Max rudder also-

Watch out for spins and inverted flight- flat bottom wing

And keep some speed on landing til your used to it-
