Well, Like I said in another thread somwhere's, I flew my nutsack off this weekend. Enough that I had to recharge at the field.
After the first flight out, I made a number of changes.
1. Turned off the racheting on the throttle stick.
2. Moved battery as far aft as possible in the wing.
The smooth throttle is going to take getting used to. Time will tell.
Moving the battery back was noticeable. It really didn't change the trim any, but for the first time, I could hover much longer than ever. I was pretty happy with how much I was able to do. I notice with satisfaction, as I get lower and hover longer, every time I needed to recover..... I do so in the right direction.... UP. There was just too many people at the field, and things were pretty busy on the runway.
Now, moving the battery, like I said did not seem to change the trim any.
In Nashville, I did notice some guys with a little tiny bit of lead sticked to the tail. :?
I also seem to recall somewhere's here that the CG of the Burrito is such that it should be tail heavy with down trim, so that when you go inverted, very little down is required to hold level?
My question is......... Do I need to change the CG more? I have plenty of thrust, so adding a half ounce at the tail isn't going to kill me, if that going to make it easier to learn to hover.
I seem to be pretty close with this plane. I'm almost at the point, where all I think I need to do, is just burn fuel and get with the program. :twisted:
1. Burn more fuel.
2. Learn to stop overcontrolling.
3. bring it down lower and closer, to see it better and to stay on top of it.
4. More weight?
What say you all?
