I see why it seemed nose heavy Gary. Your battery is quite a bit heavier than the recommended one. A little bit of weight on the tail ought to do it but I suggest flying it inverted first to see how it is.

Still it flew beautifully and you did a great job on the piloting especially since it ended up way out of trim on the elevator!

Nice looking jet. wish i had seen it fly.

Man, your workbench looks like mine. need space for something new, just brush things aside with your left arm and drop the new plane in that little cleared spot. been there, done that....heck I do it every day. lol

Instead of sweeping with my left arm I tend to put stuff on the floor. But now I have practically no place to walk.

It is definitely time for Spring cleaning for me!

Good looking kit.

I have no room in my shop either. Started new project using a portable building board in my tv room.

I used this battery for it because, we'll it is the only 4s I have, but I used it in my previous f-18 with the same setup. Also it was only getting a 4 min run max so I wouldn't go any lower then that. Well see how it is when I try inverted!

And yes my bench is a mess. Lol

Sorry Gary but it looks like the file of the video I took today was bad and unreadable.

Ok Gary, now that you're familiar with your F16 I expected to see some flying like this. (watch closely at 3:08 for a really nice flip).
