PS. Just thought I should mention that you will need a digimix (a variable end-point mixer) to fly this plane. You will not fly it with a standard 100% proportional mixer. You will get away with a 50% mixer for the elevon throw, however full adjustment will help you dial in the throws. You will find that these types of planes (plank-like planes - Bluto, Beetle) will hyperstall, which is a quickly recovered stall that repeats like a pumping motion. These is the plane stalling because of too much elevon input (too much up) for the planes airspeed. You can avoid this by using less input while flying at low speeds. and you will surprise yourself on how little input you really need to get it turning, and youll fly smoother and faster because of it.

I hope to have a fully detailed set of construction photos on our new website which will be running soon. We are specialising in DSing and slope. We will also have video and a radar gun soon to document our assualt on the foamie speed record.

All the best.
