Default RE: Super Stick 40 - What's up?

I have one of these and as a RANK beginner, I have never thought there was a problem. It has flown tail-down for me as well, and drops like a rock below 1/3 throttle. It loops and rolls perfectly, however. I have about 6 gallons through it and I agree that shelf paper covering is pure junk.

Inverted flight is OK, but the problem is the incidence. I moved the LE up about a degree temporarily, re-trimmed it and flew it for a while, (it was a bit better). I ended up just puting it back the way it was and flying it.

It may not be the best plane H-9 has ever made, but it's perfect for windy days and it really takes a beating in my truck (after a few um....modifications to the tail section).

I have flown it so much that it takes me a few ciruits to get used to a plane that flies like....a plane.
