The suggested settings are more than adequate, although
I’ve increased my mid-flap setting and added a slight amount
of additional aileron throw. Anyone comfortable with a low-wing sport airplane would easily be able to fly this. It looks
great in the air and feels bigger than it is.
Having a small-scale airplane arrive with BNF capability
and AS3X-integrated stabilization for this price is a find.
I’ve extended my timer to 6 minutes and the cells on the 3S
LiPo battery pack usually measure about 3. 8 volts at landing.
I have one last tip. If you do add any trim during the
flight, be sure to center the sticks and allow the AS3X
system to learn the new settings before making any control
movements. That means allowing it to go without your input
for roughly 3 seconds.
