I haven't flown for a few years, but I decided to get back into it by
getting an electric park flyer. When I was flying I was fairly adept
at slinging my LT-40 around the field, and could manage my mid-star 40
pretty well too. But I can't seem to keep this GWS Pico J3 (
) in the
air. I'm a complete novice at hand launching, so any pointers there
would be great. The kit came with no guidelines for control throws, so
could anyone give me an estimate on those? Basically I'm trying a
fairly firm toss at full throttle, but it won't gain any altitude, and
within 20 feet it lands pretty hard, not nose first, but hard enough
nose down to break the motor mount.
Any tips/tricks would be greatly appreciated.
