    due to the placement of the Centre of mass, after a few landings u get used though, I recommend also not using the brakes (I thought reducing the brake torque to 2 was enough) @donald347

    Is no one else having an issue landing? It flips on touchdown, almost like the wheels are locked or something. Landing with 10 to 15 throttle 75 mph. Fix that and it's golden.

    @Tang0five Yes, It was. Fun fact: My grandfather knew Bader and they used to play golf together in the 40s and 50s! I have a signed 1st edition of 'reach for the sky' his flight log entry from the day of his accident read, "Crashed slow-rolling near ground, Bad show." Possibly one of the biggest understatements in the history of aviation!
