For the first flight, I went full throw in airlerons and rudder, about half throw for elevator with all getting a lot of expo. The airplane will turn with airlerons only,it's going to be slow. If you have air and rudder mix,that's the real ticket. Just don't expect any type of performance maneuvering. EXCEPT of all things elevators. They do work. I never changed throws or settings afterward. It's just a BIG gentle flyer.

Beaut!!

Almost Zero adults could ever do that

Even among RC enthusiasts-----ABOUT ZERO, are at your level.

Your skill and dedication levels are way above norm. How many adults could ever achieve any thing like this?

But, way harder than adults, How many kids could do this? NONE , OBVIOUSLY

But,What if just one in a million could throw off the chains of cell phones, video games and facebook?????

Not possible anymore, you say, and I don't blame you. But if it was posible , here is what it would look like-----------------------http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSuLzPsWQrk&feature=player_detailpage

(If you can't click on the above just google Ziroli electric c-47)
