Test flights with the Lithium Polymer batteriesYesterday I had three flights with the new LiPoly batteries. There were problems:
These problems have been solved.
The weather is tricky these days. In the morning there is no wind, but it is terribly foggy. Later in the day the fog is gone, but there were turbulent winds throwing the plane around, especially in the second flight location.
Battery power is great - there was more than enough thrust to fight the wind. This does not help much on landing, I had to go for several rounds until the wind eased up and allowed a smooth landing.
With the heavier servo in the tail, I had to put the camera right in front on the nose. Without the camera the plane was tail heavy and hard to control.
