This is from the Instructions

Power the receiver ON noting that the LED will initially flash red / blue, then

on within 5 seconds of the transmitter. Once paired this time constraint is no

You are right about the Bixler Twin Alex
Instead of a single motor spiralling air along the fuz,
With a twin motor mod to the wings, you get two lots of air squish over the wings
A great help at low speed

|Thread: Phoenix Flight Sim|
Vitor, try this
The Transmitter needs a Model Channel for Phoenix
The Transmitter needs a charged battery
The Transmitter is switched off from here
With the computer off, and the transmitter off continuously
Connect the USB dongle to the two devices
Start up the computer, and start up Phoenix
Your Transmitter will light up on your Phoenix channel
Follow Phoenix guidance from here
Do not revert to checking the computer
Phoenix will give you promps to identify your Transmitter and to set your sticks in all 4 corners of their control
Use the Phoenix menus

Help, in general
Most 5 foot span ARTF come out around 7lb AUW, and trainer style around 6lb
How have we got to 8.5lb on this 5 foot span beautiful airframe?

Hi Bill, even without the manual, the C of G of many ARTF
Is On or very near the wing tube.
The wing tube is usually built at the thickest part of the airfoil in
the middle of the aeroplane where strength is needed
You have the manual which states 145 mm from Leading edge
On the wing tube line
Which is a really good starting point for C of G

|Thread: Best engine to model combo x3|
Yes, my flying buddy has the Wilga with a 180 fitted, and it is well suited
Just be aware of the full length wing leading edge slats
They are not too delicate
But every time I help carry it, load it, or unload the model, I grab the leading edge and it is not like any other model
They can break

Totally agree with Flight 1
Have a look at these previous posts Kevin
|Thread: 6 Turning 4 Burning|
You can also see that the pilot is a cool customer, and a very adept flyer.
The model is constantly trying to lift it's nose, and appears to prefer a certain track
The pilot overcomes this in a controlled scew appearance.
Has already been said, that with power and squish all along the wing must be unique properties to fly
