Manage first Inverted 30second hover, using all axis control.

kind of helps if I talk to myself ...stick up nose up etc

Use bailout 3 times in one flight. this is really helping thanks to Skookum.

Hover set at 2500 and different lower pitch curve,. so smooth.

2500= vibe=0.2

2800= 0.4

Metal double joint lever with new bearings fitted to tail with metal control arm.
Test fly: perfect hover with no twitch . Only hover and about 10 flips over grass.
2nd test fly : all ok

Gusty
Tail kicks a bit ...3degrees in windy gusts : gain is at 50

Skid bumpers seem to cause a resonance so removed them.

Flights perfect otherwise.

tail is perfect when no wind.

tighten up all tail linkages (still smooth but a little stiff) and tail kicks go away (in wind)

good flight on 4.02 very stable in flight

tail moves a bit in hover in wind. adjust gain from 38 to 50- needs flight test

Replay log shows tail going +-100 . Redo stick scaling.

The last few days of IRCHA…Friday…

Morning temps were cool…65 degrees with a light breeze.

I arrived at the Jamboree early this time, as Mark had overslept…again! I started off finalizing my shopping list. I checked out the FPV glasses and the new Accu simulator…not bad actually, but nothing for Mac at this time. I made my way back to our site and helped my buddy Ray programing his radio. Mark arrived and put up a couple of flights while I was working with Ray, he...
