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.

Mark arrived and put up a couple of flights while I was working with Ray, he...
