I have mine neutral balance in the air. It will do a nice, straight, at speed knife edge without coupling. And that is with a 160.

This is the way that I have solved the issue. My F-4 had the worst issue. I don't care for the male plug in for the overflow. It's always difficult to pull out, especially if it has new O-rings. I...

What a brain teaser!!! All indications is that with 1.5 degrees nose up, not nose heavy, due to down trim in level flight, it should take off on it's own. Is this your first jet? The other thing...

I'm lost then....other than not enough throws. Sure it isn't 1.5 down? They are easy to read backwards. I guess take a side picture for David.

Here is a video showing a little of what the jet will do. It also shows landing with 30 degree flaps. The camera was an older GoPro 3 with no stabilization.

From your Flight Modes, definitely incidence. You are actually a little tail heavy. Take off flaps above 25 degrees is actually adding more drag than lift. Also, the greater the flaps, the smaller...

Good Morning Peter!

Thank you for your answers. It is good that there is only a .5mm difference between stock gear. Still ashamed that you had to cut the nose strut. If you had to cut the fuse for...

Negative angle of incidence on the ground during take off is forcing the jet to hug the ground. Faster the jet goes, the worse it gets. Should have just made a larger nose gear hole. Either buy a new...

Nose heavy makes the jet/plane pull to the canopy in knife edge. He is just too slow for this jet. It is hard for a new jet pilot to get used the fact that a jet needs speed for lift. Coming from a...

More speed is the answer. He is trying to fly it like a 3D plane, and it is not. A guy at our field didn't like the jet either, but he was flying it 3D style of flying. You can accomplish a perfect...
