Default OMP edge questions

Hi,

My 46 sized omp edge does not perform a flat spin. I am using a 46fx with a 12x4 prop...hovers are rock solid. There is a lot of wing rocking on harriers and elevators. The CG is slightly aft from recommended point, could this be the reason for no flat spins? On inverted, the plane really climbs...and strangely flys nose high even on upright flight. I was wondering it adjusting the ailerons either way would solve the problem? There is something wrong in my setup, please let me know what all options I can try out on this plane. A friend says its could be a case of negative wing incidence. But then it would not fly nose high on uprite....

thanks,
Anurag

Default Reflex

Ragz,

Make sure your ailerons are not reflexed. It sounds like they might be reflexed up.

Can you tell us what happens when you try to enter the flat spin? None of the things you mentioned should stop it from doing a flat spin... Max out your throws and slam the sticks together!

Ragz.......Your flying again! Cool !

Your cg sounds a little too aft but no big deal. Here's what i do with mine.

Get up high, chop the motor and point the nose down. left ail, then right rudder and down elevator at the same time. When it goes in to the spin then roll the ailron to center or a little to the right and give it about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and it will just sit there and spin. try that on high rate. How much throw do you have? Mine is 45 deg. I think if your any more or less it might mess with it.

Hope this help's
