Sooooo....
I just came back from the second test flight.
The larger aileron-servo horns did not do the trick . initial roll response is a bit better but "sustained" roll rate is still quite low (for my personal taste). seems that roll damping of the upper wing is so high that it does not permit fast rolls.
I'd say you're better of with 4 ailerons in any case. I'll do the modification tonight and post the outcome of the next flight hopefully tomorrow.

How is YOUR experience with other bipes??? 4 ailerons needed ???

Besides of that i had so much fun flying it!! it realy made my day!
Flip-overs are so easy, rudder turs, spins ... looks all pretty cool.
it can fly so much slower than everything else that i have build before, it actually moved backwards with some moderate headwind.
I'd say it is not so much a pure 3D aerobatics plane (at least not with the undercambered wings) but it is so much fun - I think you're going to love it!!
