Default Nitro Models Pitts

Has anyone else had experience with this? I am running a Magnum 52 FS on it and when I want to really shake and get a rush I put her up. I have flown it about 5 times and each time is a ride.

Does anyone have any advice on how figure balance and throws so it wont stall on a snap? As soon as I feed in Rudder she wants to stall. I can only assume too much throw or too much nose weight.

Thanks in advance.

If the planes stalls in the beginning of the snap, it's called getting to deep. you need less elevator. Dennis

Like he said.

Usually if the plane is nose heavy the snap tendancy will be somewhat lessened as the elevator will have less authority not the other way around as you've indicated.

The recommended C.G. IMHO is a bit too far aft for initial flights.
