  1. You’re only as good as your last landing :^)

  2. Read Dave Scott’s one week to solo! That’s all I got!

  3. Some good tips. For crosswind landings, I would suggest trying to establish a stable slip on final well before the flair. Use rudder to keep the nose aligned with the runway heading and ailerons to adjust lateral position. This cross control (aileron into the wind, rudder opposite direction from the aileron) technique removes the need to make a large rudder input during the flare.

  4. Don’t know how many times I have tried to convince my friends that you have to trim the plane for flying at fast speeds, and for slow speeds, and landings. Just like ”full size” planes I have flown. Glad to see someone finally get the point across.

  5. Amen. These points always bear repeating and practice, practice, practice. Computer mixing assistance is a very helpful tip!

  6. Thank you for your helpful insights. I appreciate that you explained them in a clear and concise manner. Often flying instructions are too convoluted.

    I have just finished my second year of r/c flying in Eastern Canada and will benefit from your suggestions.
