Coming to life:
This is a great plane, I've been flying it a lot lately and had an issue with dropping a while conducting parachute operations. The first time it happened was down low and scared the crap out of me as I wan't expecting this to happen. I continued to do them but higher up and I was having the same outcome, I kept dropping the same wing. If never had to do this before, but I tied a string around the prop adapter and put some tape on the rudder to keep it locked in.
I hoisted up the nose and let the bottom of the rudder rest on my index finger. Well, it was no surprise that the right side was heavier seeing as that was the wing giving me the trouble. I put 2g of weight (two washers) on the left SFG bolts and rebalanced. seemed to balance better. I weighed the SFG's and one of them was 1g heavier.
I flew it today and the problem was gone. easy fix. I
Right now I'm using Yellow Jacket 6s 3750's, but I just upgraded my charging system to the icharger and hopefully will be able to pick up some REVO 6s 3700 435 blends to try out.
Had a shop party today and I cut out early to do a little work in my shop. Thanks to TimmyC not minding me using his idea on the MXS and Eric doing an absolutely beautiful job recreating it with a few photos. Here's a snap of the fuselage. You would never know unless I tell you, but I had to position the larger start on the left side down and back a little more than the other to cover a tear started while lifting the checkerboard off. I still need to peel the black film off the top and I'll be able to apply the wing graphixs.
