Use the recommended control throws as suggested by the manufacturer

Once you get more proficient with your WB, you can set recommended throws as the middle rates, then input a low rate (i.e. 80%) and a high rate (i.e. 115%)

Great thought Marc, so what brought that idea into your head? lol I must say, amazing recovery on both flight attempts!
Seriously, Marc is right. Your warbird isn't a 3D plane. Go with the recommended throws and CG to start. Work from there.

Re: Tips for Warbird Success (flying)

The previous posts have a lot of great information on warbird flying. I totally agree that warbirds should be flown as warbirds, slow barrel rolls & big graceful loops & high speed passes are my only maneuvers.
If I could add one item I have added to my list for successful flights is to have SOME wind, right down the runway. A dead calm may be great for some types of model flying but my rather heavy Sea Fury prefers a light, steady wind right down the runway. If not, the touchdown speed is too high & the retractable gear with doors sometimes catches the grass & can nose over. Works for me !
