I have scratch built a 1/10th scale PSS Me109 from white foam and
brown paper (some ply and balsa as well). Elevator and Aileron only.
It flys OK in a steady wind but seems a bit skittish in anything
variable. It seems to stall quite easily in even in gently turns. I
could push the CG a bit further forward but I notice it is already
flying with very slight up elevator. The killer move happened when I
tried a loop. As I pulled for up elevator the plane immediately
flicked out and fluttered about before I managed to regain control.
The wing is an E374 section but I think it could have been made a bit
more "streamlined". Could a more careful wing construction be the
answer? Or have you any other pointers to better flying
