Yes it could take a few flights to get it nailed but compared to the hassle of adustable mounts I know which I'd prefer. I guess a compromise might be to make a mount that is adjustable by screws, that would mean adjustments would take seconds.
I wssn't planning on going deeper into the high power stuff but as an example ... the 1.2kw parkjet has a runtime of barely over a minute .. 2 mins if I'm careful. Agreed I can slow her right down to normal PKJ speed and maybe get 3mins ... but in reality there are only two areas of interest - that's launch and WAY HEY WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT !!

In a more normal set-up I agree ... you'd build up adjustments as necessary etc.

I think the pitch concept could be more interesting than the yaw aspect personally and given good control that can be switched on / off - put to good use.

Many of the Youtube videos that mention TV on the model do not really show any real benefit or antics as a result of it .. pity as it can really make a difference when set-up correctly.
