Well I've finally succumbed Dave and built another PBF, the bane of every newbie that ever figured a 5 minute build to an almost indestructable airplane HAD to be the answer they were looking for. Sure, they don't have the dexterity required to use their garage door remote control but by golly they're going to fly RC airplanes if it costs them every car panel, window and neighbors dog in the area, then come ask us questions in the beginners section of every forum.
The last one, the first one, I had was back in 2002. It had a Norvel25 on mouse can. It had two throttle settings, not enough and Mach3. It wasn't much fun. This one has a TT42 and mouse with full size gear. Flew it for about an hour yesterday, got off light with only one broken prop and one replaced pull pull thread.
So, is there a 'how to fly' thread on here as indicated on your webpage or is this the combination thread which means 63 pages of reading?
As is, I'm just flying figure 8's and slowly working into higher and higher AoA with momentary hovers. Drug the tail a couple times so I'm working it down in altitude though with the limited 3D that I've flown with tuits and that GeeBeeqhor, I don't have problems figuring out it's not an airplane. Still, first flight was about 40 feet high for parts. Last flight I don't think I went over 20.
Gonna take some driveway markers out to the field to fly around instead of just figure 8's anywhere.
