    trouble with nano goblin in wind

    I have recently gotten a nano goblin and set it up with a taranis qx7 and a 900mhz rx. my video is a cricket pro and hoot antenna. I have viper goggles with a crosshair and cloverleaf antenna. I am running it on a strix 2s Li-Ion pack and the CG is balanced per the manual.
    Today I flew is in a 10-15 mph wind and it was really hard to control. I didnt have any issues flying my smaller and lighter umx planes though.
    I was hoping someone could help to provide some insight into why it was so difficult to control in the wind. I have linked a video from my flight today.
    I can provide any more details that are needed.

    it's a tiny featherlight plane. it's not going to be steady in wind...

    ... unless you build it for flying in wind

    - a flight controller with gyros will do a LOT for you
    - heavier build, maybe 3S li ion pack

    though I fly mine in wind like that on 2S without much issue and not needing to rely on the gyros (but they make life nicer, and I do have a iNav FC)
    another friggin lawn dart. love it

    Old thread but , can you share your iNAV configuration parameters for the NanoGoblen?

    I'm actually building up a Strix Nano Goblin. I just bought an iNAVflight controller.. F22 series. I'm going the use an old 913mhz 3DR setup for telemetry. It would be very handy to have your iNAV configuration parameters for the nano Goblin.
