Finally flew on Saturday. I had to get a few pointers on tail-dragger take offs (like full up elevator while taxing). Flew fine, but landing was an experience. Brought it in a little hot, pulled up...

I have a DX8 and love it. But I will suggest that you try to get your hands around two or three different ones. You may find that some with great features just don't "feel" right. Don't be afraid...

What did you have to do on the first flight to get it to stop turning left? Just a lot of trim clicks? What did you do long term? Just change the clevis position?

I actually put a drop or two of hot glue through the hole they have for the "pin". Holds them well and I can always scrape or drill it out.

I don't own RealFlight, just Phoenix. Maybe it's just personal preference, but when I used RF in the stores, to me the planes seemed "clunky". Maybe it's the processor power. I'm sure...
