Daniel tricked me into getting a new RC plane, well, at least that's my story :)|
Building was not too bad, the control surfaces are huge, and the overall build was well designed and worked well.
I felt a bit weird that the wing of a high G 3D plane come in 2 pieces
but a good gluing surface and carbon spar for strength helped
I thought the parkmaster was small, it's actually bigger than my minimag
Unfortunately, on my first video'ed flight, in high wind, I found out my DX7 just wasn't programmed properly for the plane: in dual rate mode, a stick throw gave so much deflection and authority that the plane turned all the way left, and then right, and then crashed :)
This was later quickly fixed by putting my exponential rates to 80% so that I don't get so much deflection on partial stick throws.
In a later flight in calmer winds I actually did much better, including a little bit of harrier and knife edge.
