Hello sim flyers,
Here's a just completed conversion of an FMS model to AFPD.

Special Note: Put the rudder on the aileron channel as primary
turning control for a three channel airplane. Actual airplane does
not have a steering front wheel, it is on the rudder channel.
This is one awesome RTF airplane, it has terrific looks and comes
with some awesome technology for easing a newbie flyer into a
successful flying hobby. They call it Electronic Virtual
Instructor technology and experienced pilots can think of it
as a roll gyro with a mixing radio that makes it easier
to fly the model and keep it straight and level and well
behaved in the turns.
