Took of the SFG's I'd made, and now it is even better. A very nice airframe. Feels just superb to fly.

I can't get over how great this model is to fly... having too much fun on this Telink:
Unedited 3D flight: Telink 44" Slick / Edge 3d / freestyle / rollers, snaps, hovers etc (6 min 15 sec)


8FG - limit v travel:
Limit is the maximum the throws of the channel can go with mixing, and travel is how far it will go from direct input control. Unless you specifically want more throw through mixing, just set limit and travel to the same amount. 100% is usually fine (ideally you'd want to match it to how far you want your servos to travel), then use dual rates to limit travel otherwise.

8FG - Trainer FUNC - You mention trimming out the buddy box. With all channels set to FUNC this should not be necessary. Make sure that all the settings on the slave transmitter are at their neutral defaults. The slave transmitter will then respond to all the mixes and trims of the master. Trim your model out with the master transmitter and the model should automatically be in trim when you hand control to the slave.

I was fortunate enought to be paid for some Aerial photography work and took a trip in the Robinson with the door off... was quite a thrill and something I very much want to do again... took images of 2,300 students making a huge 50th Jubilee logo on their school field
