Tried some test "Glides" this afternoon, 200 turns of two strands of 1/8th. It went 10 ft and stalled straight ahead. Didn't drop a wing. The amount of ballast is "Whow" amount. May have to double the horse power.

Any more ballast and you might have a submarine. Really a good looking plane and a straight ahead stall good.

Stalling out straight ahead is a good thing ! Try adding some down thrust , then add more turns .

You've got quite a beautiful work of art there my friend. I have to go along with bsadonkill (sp?) and add a bit of down thrust. If it still tends to climb after the rubber band is finished, then try gently bending the elevator down just a tad..... :0)

It's not a power issue. It's a c/g issue. At 200 knots, it's like using 15 in of manifold pressure. No thrust, on drag. I built 2deg of down and right thrust into the nose block.
