    PZ UM P40 vs T28 in upwind turn

    This is going to sound like the dreaded downwind turn thread: but it isn't. Really.

    When I turn upwind in my PZ micro P40, it seems to want to increase it's angle of attack and climb. The AOA is...

    Hatch sounds like a good solution. When I fly my planes, I'll switch the battery out 2 or 3 times (I have multiple extra's). Without a hatch, you'd be taking the wing off and that's not fun.

    There's something else that happens very, very close to the ground (on order of 1-1.5x wingspan). This is much closer even than the Ag pilot should be experiencing. There's just a couple of planes,...

    low rate/expo settings for UM T28, P40

    I have both the Parkzone ultra micro T28 and P40. Out of the box, the T28 flies great. The P-40 seems extremely sensitive. Looking at the manuals, the P40 recommends low rates, which I had not set...
