That's what the guy who sold it told me about the plane being extremely sensitive to the controls, especially ailerons. My TX (and I!) are older; it's a DX5e, and it has a 'Hi' and 'Lo' switch for the throws.
Will setting it on 'Lo' make it appreciably less of a maverick? Also, I asked in my original post, if there was a way to mechanically restrict the aileron travel distance.
Thanks for all the help. I'm re-entering this world, after a 45 year break to raise ungrateful kids! It was all free flight, rubber, and CL back then.
RC is fascinating to me.
