Now how easy it will be to twist knob while in the air has yet to be seen. All I have left is to install rudders (which seem like the weakest point on this plane; I may try to re-engineer something) and attach the elevators and motor.
Rudders are tricky. My mod worked but not too well due to massive coupling. For normal flying they are unnecessary... I just wanted to do knife edges and spins!
