That's a really nice looking model you have there. The Horten designs are sooo graceful, she will look great in the air I'm sure.

Sorry to hear that, not such a great day:(

I'm not sure if being able to replay on video is consolation or just re-living the pain?

The power 25 comes in three versions 870Kv, 1000Kv and the 1250Kv 'screamer'

I'm guessing that you dont have the 1250Kv version like the OP tried to use? (Kv makes an enormous difference)

It's worse than that, power goes up roughly by cube of RPM, so 1.5^3 = 3.375 times more power!

Then you have the battery voltage increase which again works to the cube: 4/3^4 = 2.37 times more...

The Bixler does do very funny things when you apply throttle at low airspeed. It's due to the high pylon mounted motor and weird thrust line. I've flown one and even with 40+ years of experience...

To be honest i prefer the Xoar PJN too mainly because they are lighter. The down side is they are much less durable.

I don't own one so I'm not 100% sure but from what I read the version in the Sukhoi is pre-programmed and locked. Others might be able to confirm from first hand experience.

Yeah, he said 'basic five channel receiver' so I'm assuming that means no stabilisation of any kind, which rules receiver setup errors out of the equation.
