A couple of weeks ago I posted blog on fitting an the APM in an electric ducted fan.
Today, I flew it with APM stabilize enabled. I tried to do a…Continue
I've final finished setting up the worlds first (to my knowledge, and until proven otherwise) ArduPlane F22 Twin EDF with thrust vectoring, flaps, slats, and retractable undercarriage. It flies using delta wing mixing. With 6S 4000 mah.

A few minutes into the flight, on turning crosswind it went into a spin. Probably induced by too much elevator and aileron.
