I love that story. In fact not to be mean, I was laughing when I first watched it. Waaaaaaay too much engine for the Dakota.A Pee Wee .020 would suffice. I was going to put a Spitzy on mine but I'm currently using a OK Cub .049. which is also a bit much but it's somewhat anemic.

My exact thoughts. Too much engine, too much fuel, running too hard. It should have been richened up to a nice slow slobbering run around 8,000 rpm, not screaming at peak like it is.

I never made a free flight, but I understand that it takes technique and knowledge not to mess up, or lose a model! ... Here is another video, I love these videos, it is possible that at some point you can make some model for free flight ... Very Happy
