articulated elevator

The slow speed elevator authority has never been a hindrance for me although I don't think is is quite as good as my 3.5 Maxa with the large stab. There is a physical limit with the Perfection due to the tip of the elevator hitting the tail boom. Just enough travel for me... Keep in mind this comes from a guy that struggles with the Hunski with any model

How is the Vixen? Have you tried the larger stabs yet?

Have any of you noticed a lack of control authority trying to nose over and nail the hunski? This could show up when flaps are deployed, and the elevator is already close to full deflection due to flap to elevator mix.

Just curious.

Thanks
