Re: Trouble Landing 5occ CMP 540 Edge 28%

To help you sort out this problem , we need more info it always the same wing dropping ?...will it also do the same thing at higher altitude ?...

Setup, balance,trim ,linkage, mixes,cheap servo's that don't center well, and incidence, and thrust angle all could contribute to unstable flight performance...

Hope this will give you a starting point to find the problem... Good Luck

If you're dropping a wing it means you're stalling it. You're trying to slow it down too much to land. Maintain your speed and fly it in and you won't have any problems.

Re: Trouble Landing 5occ CMP 540 Edge 28%

I have been having the same problem with landing my WildHare Extra 300. 18 Lbs
Some of the better fliers at my field suggested I feed in a little throttle on approach to smooth things out. So at the end of the runway at about 15 feet up I give about 2 clicks to throttle and fly in without holding any elevator, cut the throttle just before or at touchdown.
Works for me ALMOST every time.
