I'm new to flying RC Aircraft, and recently purchased an electric "crash proof" trainer to get started. I'm glad that it's crash proof...it's needing this ability. I don't know all the names of the controls, but I'll try to explain the problem as best I can.
My RC controller has two toggle switches, one on the left that goes up and down, and one on the right that goes left to right. The instructions tell me to throw the airplane into the wind, at eye level, and parallel with the ground. While I do this, I push the toggle on the left all the way to the top, and the engine of the plane roars.
Well, the plane climbs, and this is where something goes wrong. It starts to vear to the left, and eventually I lose control of it, and it crashes.
Possible problems are:1) I am not using alkaline AA batteries as suggested, just regular AA batteries. I'm wondering if the plane does not have enough power, and this is causing it to vear and crash rather than having enough power to force itself through the problem. 2) I have a guide that tells me to bend the tail section of the plane up or down (it's styrofoam) if the plane is not performing properly. 3) I try to correct the flight by pushing the right toggle to the left and right to try and correct it...but it doesn't seem to help.
Any advice on what the problem is? Are there any good Web Sites to teach me how to fly RC Airplanes?
