I don't believe that right hand circuits will be quite as good as left handers...although I'm sure ,many would not agree with me .

As rule of thumb. I have found with this size model .the off set should be about 6mm to the right.

Are you familiar with the hanging thrust test to check the thrust line?

I think that my model fly's with about 4-5 deg back tilt.

Be VERY careful not to pull back to get your model into the air

Tilt head back fully to get head up to speed and as that happens slowly open throttle to get the model moving into the with head coming up to speed reduce back tilt and increase throttle so the model should be moving faster with head spinning fast . continue to increase throttle and when the model is ready it should lift by itself... and then you can apply back tilt if necessary.

If your not happy at any time … pullout

Pulling back on the head at low speed will only end in grief....been there done that.

Happy landings

Oh yes ..that is a great looking version.


Ok I will remove the stab from my Mantis ….What could go wrongdont know wink

Rich ... I have noticed over the years that you like to remove the horizontal stab when ever possible.

BUT doing that gives you less of the model to see and I for one need to be able to see as much of these flying machines as possible.wink
