This is a ST Models Sea Captain. I thought the sloppy take off and landings would be more entertaining than the good ones! A lot of the rough landings was filmed while range testing after the receiver got soaked and i only had a range of less than 100 feet, so i had to take off and quickly land before i lost complete control. Most of these clips were filmed while test flying it, and still very out of trim (Tail heavy) resulting in unstable flight, high stall speed and a unrecoverable tip stall at low speed. Adding weight in the nose made it more stable in flight but harder to get airborne on take off, and vice versa when moving the c of g backwards. Getting a fine balance and working out its 'gremlins' took time, but nothing beats the feeling of a greaser of a landing on water!!
