Yes your right about fighting only the gusts, I wrote that section poorly. Still it couldn't overcome the wind in a controllable manner. It was really sad looking. I was having fun in the wind with my 3D planes and couldn't keep the SS airborne despite it.
Yep, fresh hinges, that a good catch. I'll see about having him pop the linkages off and exercise the hinges.
Could anyone tell me either in terms of degrees or a dimension what the deflections on the surfaces are on your plane? I was getting less than 3/8" deflection at the trailing edge of the ailerons.after I maxed it all out Cant recall the other 2 surfaces. this seems too small
I went over to the VH website to take a look, and it a SS look alike. 1280mm wingspan vs 1400. Also, the ailerons look hinged. Not sure what the problem, but you should have good control, but not 3d. The horns do look a bit small.
