Moa critique

I really enjoy flying this model; my only suggestion to the designers is to forgo the scale proportions and add a few more square inches of side-surface area to the vertical stabilizer and rudder. The model tends to be directionally unstable (fishtailing) in turbulent conditions. OK during calm winds.

Moa

Easy to put together, I changed the color of the plane to camo with US marks. Flew it once, need adjust the flight surfaces. But it flys nice. Need to add the servo throws in the instructions.

Improved flying performance with radio

I bought this bird a couple of years ago and it wasn't much fun to fly so I put it on the shelf. The 2 main gripes were ballooning at full throttle and falling off a wing on the turns. But recently with my Spektrum 6 channel radio I thought I'd try a couple of mixes to see if I could improve the flight characteristics of this otherwise cool looking plane in the air. Mix 1 I incorporated a little down elevator(15%) with full throttle which really reduced the straight up ballooning and as you reduce the throttle the down elevator also reduces which is really nice. When the throttle is off the elevator goes back to neutral and whatever your trim is set at. Mix 2 I added a little coordinated rudder to my ailerons so the plane is less apt to fall off in a turn. I know some of you guys out there can do this manually but I would rather let the radio do it. More reliable! Now this plane flies so nice and it's so much more fun on a calm or windy day. It's like a new airplane.
