I can say that this thing hates being nose heavy. Mine is slightly nose heavy and when you power down it drops. You also better have some good altitude when it tip stalls. That small elevator has very little throw even with max throw. Mine tip stalled today at around 50 feet and it ate the ground. Just broke off the tail section from the carbon fiber rod..glued it back on for another try tomorrow.

My man Brad,
You are correct that Ogar has propensity for nose heavy; it certainly eats gas even more when it is so; that being said, when it is not nose heavy worse things occur. Serious tip stalling aka crashes will be the order of the day; also, if equipt with return to home features then they will have trouble descending as many rely on no throttle to decend: once again tip stall; even if ever so slightly nose heavy, depending on wind direction: yep ! tip stall !! I gave up on finding SWEETEST spot for CG to float; and went old school and decided on the basics: chuck the bird several times in different wind directions and make sure she floats nose down every time; that will end your crashes.
Good luck brother

I've been eyeing the ogar for a while now but am worried about that long slender tail. Can anyone advise if it is reinforced or not?
