Like others have pointed out, it sounded tail-heavy to me.

I just ordered one of these for my 7-year-old son and my plan is to get him up on a buddy-box this weekend. I've read a lot of good stuff...

Nigel,

Ah, the joys of internal combustion! I had a similar incident with my 120cc gasser Slick recently. Even with throttle trim set to the lowest point, I couldn't get her to slow down and even...

You want the Radian. The Habu is a high speed plane and is a lot less forgiving. If you experiment, you want a plane that doesn't immediately become a lawn dart the millisecond something goes a...

If by "active control" you mean fly-by-wire, it's kind of already been done. Check out e.g. the Demon Cortex or the Eagletree Guardian. Depending on the mode, they can be set up to pretty much fly...

Uhm? The Habu and the Radian Pro are kind of polar opposites. The Habu is fast and has a fairly high wing load. The Radian Pro is floaty and not really known for its speed (although sailplanes can be...

There are differing opinions on whether 1/4-scale counts as giant scale, but I'm about to start converting my 3DHS 72" Extra from 36cc gas to a 12s LiPo system. It should be pretty epic. :)

Since that plane has standard, straight non-swept wings it's easy. Set the CG to 1/4 of the distance from the leading edge about 1" from the fuse and fly it. Put it into a 45 degree upline and flip...

Hotliner - Trying something new

As much as I love my giant scale 3D planes, it's time to try something new and add to the addiction. I'm thinking speed and I'm thinking hotliner.
