Got it to fly!!

Cabin Stick Flight Report

Moved the CG to 35%. Shimmed the leading edge of the stab up 1/32 of an inch.
The first flight still had a hard right. Took a long hard look at the rudder and the rear of the fuselage. Decided the fuselage was bent like banana or the cabin was causing the hard right. FIX! Move the rudder 3/16 of an inch to the left and make that the neutral position.
Next flight was pretty good. The glide had a very slight stall. Put in one click of down trim.
Last flight it went up like the Wedgy and the Airfoiler.
All these check out flights were made in a 10 to 12 mph wind.
It did not look that windy when I went out to fly. The Lanzo R/C Cabin Stick is ready to fly in a contest, even a windy contest!
I have another long running Cox engine in this model. It got way up thar; lucky it was a dark cloudy sky.
I am through building and flying 1/2 A Texaco models.
