Brodie - which Decathalon did you have? The Pilot? Did it have much coupling in Knife Edge?
Yeah it was the 30cc pilot. Remember the one that came with squished wings and I was left with no fix and had to buy my own new ones lol. There was some coupling but once I was used to it. It was second nature. I didn't play with the cg much that might have helped. The flaps didn't do much for landings lol it was a floater
