Hit the deck this afternoon with my X8 during my APM maiden from the death roll. I was flying in stabilize, LOS and dropped airspeed during a high turn. My fault entirely. My CG is at the manufacturers recommended but I think I may shift it forward slightly because I noticed a bit of porpoising after reviewing the footage.

FYI there is no mixing in the Tx , its all done in the APM. also output 1 goes to the LEFT elevon and output 2 goes to the RIGHT elevon. Set up the movements in stabilise first and when you get those correct then go to manual and reverse them as required until the MAN control is also correct.
