So is it a feel type thing when you drive or is it technical before you hit the jump. Depending how I come out of a turn sometimes the throttle is pressed later than sooner when hitting the jump.

How do you know how much throttle to give and when to give it.
This is about 99% throttle control. depending on how big the jump is, just a blip should make your losi raise the nose up, if its a small jump preloading can over shoot so releasing the throttle JUST AFTER take off should help balance it out. on a side note, i had the same problem, and i put a JC wing on and now my losi seems to fly more level. This might be a mental thing but it works for me...?

the jc downfource wing does make the buggy land level even if u say on the throttle in the air it seems like it i ran a hyper 7 with a stock wing and i had to almost do mid air correct every time i think it was cause its is a heavy freakin buggy but that jc wing seem to help.soon as i strighten out i hit the throttle either full or half before the jump and left off when im in the air a little and give it a blip of throttle ,i can never time letting off when i hit the limp of the jump

What you are asking cannot be taught.

You should not be thnking about one word of advice given here when it comes time to do it, if you do you will screw up.

Practice and have fun while racing and it will come natural...................

I'm newbee.......... I don't jump too high and too far

My buggy weight distribution probably is not 50 : 50 front vs rear and right vs left. Is this matter ?

if you're a newbee, then make sure you build the kit with the stock setup, symmetrical left to right, no binding, and weight distribution will be fine.

Then learn to drive and enjoy yourself while trying to hit the apexes the proper way.

The rest will come with time
