I was wondering about that. I made one up years ago and it would loop on me when throwing it by hand. I think I'll start off by lightning it up and doing what you said about setting it to zero. Thanks Tom.

Most likely with these model, designed for hand launching, will be with the incidence between wing and horizontal stab.  Most of these hand launched models are designed to give big loops and look aerobatic in flight. 

So when you add a catapult to them...you increase launch speed and if not careful will wind up hitting yourself in the back of the head before you can duck.... don't ask how I know about this! Embarrassed Roll Eyes Shocked Grin Cheesy Wink
So that would be the first area I'd examine and try to set them at zero zero to start with.

Bought this today wondering if they could be coverted  into a jetacat. Has anyone ever tried with those kits?
