I finished my second Capricorn and it flies great. Tight rolls and loops. Very happy with it above ground. To launch it, I just hold it out, give full throttle and it is gone. But the thing wont take...

Thanks for the input people. And Chellie, I gotta get out of this forum, you fly too fast for me. I crash enough at a slow speed, I would hate to see the remains if I tried to fly an EDF jet.

I am glad I came into this hobby when I did, I can't imagine the anxiety that would go into flying a balsa plane that I had 40 hours into for building and a $200 gas motor. How could that be any fun?...

I played with it some more and I am not getting snapping rolls. It seems like the plane just wants to do lazy rolls. When I give it left stick, plane starts rolling left and losing altitude. I...
