Stregnthen the u/c mount/plate. Not sure what instructions state but I am running 4 deg of right thrust and still need a small rudd mix for upline. Also running 20% ele to rudd mix for knife edge and smidge of opp aileron but I fly that out.
Regarding mix , CofG set so just pulls to canopy on 45 inverted upline and needs a slight push inverted straight and level. Also I had to mod ailerons on the hinge corner, cut out small square and support with robart hinge as they started to split on the hinge line. I have seen this on a comp arf to.

Not saying yours will just my experiance.

Must say here that having looked at Birdys Compy Sukky that the undercarriage mounting plate follows exactly the same format as the Krill so i wouldn't put this down to Krill having a weak system. When i got my 1st 37% Krill Sukky the the plate had been damaged badly by the previous owner, but the frame had been a competion frame for 2 years! My new frame i asked for the plate not to be fitted as i wanted to re in force myself. This is not cos it isn't fit for purpose, but due to the fields i fly from which have bad surfaces.

As a guide for CofG I have a mintor 110 on cans. ignition battery mounted just in front of the wing tube. I use two servos on the rudder on the standard mounts. Then I have power box and two lipo about 4-5 inches behind wing tube.

Mmm Phil, i feel your pain buddy i really do :(

Im guessing this is possibly your 1st composite frame built from scratch. :think: When you buy a Krill/ Comp Arf they kinda assume that your a well honed build junky and supply you with an" ARTB" AKA Almost Ready To Build :lol: Its a little like going to a Boutique Haute Couture clothes shop and wondering why theres no prices . If you need to ask you shouldn't be in the shop :lol:

Without having a few 2nd hand composite airframes i wouldn't have a clue as to assemble my current Krill 37% SU29 and make it better than the last guys build. I think theres a very good informative build on the Krill Yak at the moment which may help you out big stylee.

I must agree though that for the price paid on these frames , the manufacturers have a long way to come to make these kits a formidable ARTF kit in the Market Place.

Any help needed please ask and we will all help out i promise ;)

I didn't realise that these composite models were so "basic" when you receive one. :o For how much these models cost would have thought they would come a little bit more finished. Or is it that I am expecting too much. :think:
