Default RE: OMP Fusion 3D build

The fusion flew today. it was palgued by a couple of small problems but came out fine except that stinkin' &*^%&$^$&%*&*&(* JW landing gear that came with these things then.
I fired up the brand new ys 110S and for the very first time ever, i had to adjust the low speed needle on it to get it to run well.
Took it up and trimmed it out, and i flew very nice. Like on rails! Brought her down to hover but its still pretty windy so the jury is out on that, very nice smooth knife edge. The new ys 110S had so much frikken power ive never seen the likes, So much that i was drag racing upward and the rudder fluttered, prolly doing about 90 MPH strait up. I did not weight the plane but i think the engine is just that strong.
landed and found the rudder pushrod stripped at both ends in the ball link, this could have caused the flutter or been the result.
Also the tailwheel had been lnocked off due to the flutter.
I installed a new pushrod and it flew again flawlessly but since i had no tailwheel i landed in the grass instead of the blacktop. It was s smooth landing but the frikken &(&&^&(*^(*^*( JW gear both snapped like a car sitting on a toothpick. Brent warned me about that but i already had it installed. So other than needing a new Tailwheel and crazy legs she is unhurt and i love the Tony Stewart home depot #20 Joe gibbs Zippy Zippadelli Toyota Fusion.

Hey Steve, tell Tony to slow down or he'll rip his tail off! hehe
