I do have the leading edge covered with that goop stuff. Everything else was fine. I could have flown again but it was too windy. I found out want I wanted though - it will fly with that 7x5. So next weekend if it's warm and not windy I will see if I can fly it again!
I do need to work on my dual rates and expo. What dual rates and expo does everyone like to use for really smooth easy flight?
I don't use dual rates but do use 40% positive expo. I've hear of guys using as much as 70% positive. I like agressive control throws available at all times myself. Not always the best thing with a new model or type though.
