We continue to play with the elevon set up and the elevator on the Peregrine. Once we glued the big tail to an unmoving surface it was hard to get enough up and down response with the elevons. When the tail (elevator) was loose it worked better than after it was glued solidly in place. The aileron-elevator works better than the elevons.

I also have screwed the wing down solidly with hardware showed previously. The Velcro is a good idea but it allows some wing movement even though the Velcro is attached.

I have been playing with the motor angle again since I screwed the wing down and have added a little down thrust to the motor.
