Hi!
My Proudbird and serveral of my friends came out nose heavy. The addvised C of G does not seem to be correct!?
Any one having the same troubble?

Right out of the box set CG at recommendation and it flew very well. I think I had one click of elevator and one for aileron.

I agree with JSTAFF. My flew perfectly with the suggested CG. Unfortunately, I didn't[:@]

Hi!
I moved my 2650mAh battery 30mm further back (had to reposition the aileron servo further back to clear the battery) and the plane flew much smoother!
The Proudbirds I have heard of have all been nose heavy.
Now the Cof G on my plane lies 5-10mm behind the rear most edge of the landing gear plate in the wing.

Jan,

Did you paint or cover your Proud Bird?
