Well i learn't something new today about fast jets and sub standard torque servos, the aileron servos seemed fine the problem
was with the elevator, after the first flight it seemed to have very poor performance on low rates so on the second flight i increased the movement anyway it seemed ok after a couple of low passes full chat at about 100mph plus it seemed ok until i went into a shallow dive at full throttle it was ballistic pulled back on the elevator no response i could,nt pull it out of the dive even after cutting the throttle i think the high pressure over the elevators was to much for the servos hence one of the biggest impacts me and a couple of onlookers have ever seen what a thud. Luckily the rx and motor esc were all ok not so much could be said for the batterys they took the full force of the impact and went up in smoke yep they were smoking. to sum up its not alway as easy to glag a big motor on the back of your model well back to the drawing board maybe the funjet ultra that is designed for 100 plus setup
