Only one other epp wing out today, we did combat, and I won by default 2 times, he crashed both times when we got close to the ground. This thing is sparking some interest, may need to get more.

Watching Lee's videos, and running about 100/60 differential right now, it almost rolls straight, may need to add some more deflection. What are you running for differential in the elevons? I'll try 50% down tomorrow, and see which way it takes me. Oh what prop are you running in that "power sloping" video?
I am using less differential with the motor tipped the angle we have it on the mount. On my old planes I ran about 40% up to 60% down. I would mechanically set it up by turning the servo arm a couple of clicks forward on each side.

I am using the 7x6 prop listed in the Beginners Shopping List we did. This prop is not only the best deal but it is quieter than any others we have tried.
