    Are you way heavy, either nose or overall, or possibly had a botched throw? It took a bit before you gained enough airspeed to begin to pull out. I've had that happen... to the point where I either skim the ground or "land" prematurely, but those times were either attempting to launch with a partially drained battery or when testing motors / props. Are you using the ss motor on 5s? I wouldn't have expected any altitude loss after launch, from what I've seen at least.

    I think he has a mode setup that puts in a little more climb. I also haven't finished trimming it yet and have a feeling that I need more aft trim. I kind of ran out of time to do any trimming today and once it was in the air I thought screw it and flew it in 3d mode since I knew it would hold the attitude and I could get a feel for it. Probably should have gotten the trims done at least but I wanted to have a little fun after all the waiting lol. It did take more effort to get it to catch it after launch but I have been lowering throws little by little trying to get smoother flying. I think that I will raise them back up and put in a little expo and figure that out. Im somewhat new to the world of planes and coming from flying racing multis so probably not doing it all completely correctly but Im learning pretty quick.

    Yeah I think I have lowered the throws a bit much. Early on with them higher it would pull right up but with it now it takes a bit of effort. Im going to raise them back up and put in some expo for a bit more smoothness.

    I can launch it with or without a mode. I do have on switch that gives it like 8 clicks of up. This switch adds the elevator in any flight mode or manual. It just makes a no brainer launch every time.
