Are you trying to make the plane appear to fly at the same speed upwind vs downwind.... or are you holding constant throttle?

You might be on the edge of stall and the gyro fighting the stall.

27 for USA is the undesired stepchild. Limited to extreme low power TX and thus stupidly low range. Some 27 mhz stuff can't even work across a typical living room.

Some of the micro 72 mhz rxs used half length antennae.
Range was drasticly lower than normal length. In some cases you got more range from 27 mhz.

That stuff... :p not the same at all. Normal CA will eat it.

But many glues will stick permanently.

Still epoxy is one of the best choices because of the need to bond to the carbon fiber.
