A fairly terrible maiden.

Well, I had a fairly disastrous maiden today with my Skybuggy 300. Balanced on the main spar, near the rear of the recommended CG range, the plane was uncontrollable. On take-off, it went straight up…

… and came straight down.vlcsnap-2016-04-05-01h35m55s199 vlcsnap-2016-04-05-01h48m35s254


I jammed the battery all the way forward and the plane went from unflyable to merely extremely twitchy. (Yes, I flew it with a bent shaft and grindy bearings, but not for long.)
