The only .049 I had ended up on a power pod on a gentle lady. It was the black widow model. I flew it a couple times but it was pretty loud!

Tried a different prop, 5.25x6.25. Only 35 amps instead of 39 with the 6x5.5. Slightly faster and less battery I think. It still torque rolls on launch, yaws left when going verticle (loops...

Only 1 flight today. Had a bad landing. Came in too fast and it cart-wheeled when I tried to avoid a tree. Battery came out of the fuse.
Fixed it though.

Oh well. I don't think there's too many people flying the GLH anymore. There's 3 gas and 3 electrics on youtube. I found a few threads where people build them but then they don't say much after...

Right now I'm at CG+1/8". I was a little behind the CG on the first couple flights when I thought I was at CG. My battery is about a far forward as I want to go. It seems to fly pretty stable at...

I think I hit 2 trees actually. Clipped the first at 2.5 seconds after launch which put it on knife edge and then crashed at 3.9 seconds. It takes 2 seconds for me get my thumb back on the stick...

Balance is a good word! I was just looking at my wing and it is heavier on the left side when balancing it on my fingers. 2 pennies on the right side levels it out. The checkerboard stripe on the...

Still have problems with the launch. Crashed into a tree. Stripped the elevator servo. The plane is ok. Minor scuffs. So either I need right thrust or maybe less throttle on the launch? It just...

Looking at the CG again. Plans says 2 oz fuel tank so I simulated a full gas tank using 2oz weight. It moves the CG forward 1/2". Then I tried 1oz or 1/2 tank fuel and it moved it forward 1/4"....

I rechecked the thrust line angle. Its the same angle as the wing. So I guess there is no downthrust or right-thrust. When I built it, I did lower the wing like 1/8" so it wasn't sticking up like...

Well I flew it 4 times today. It's not an easy plane to fly. It doesn't like low speed at 27oz weight. Stalled it 3 times, 2 wild launches, a couple of hard landings. But I felt very lucky to...
