Yes, excellent consideration; I'd planned to implement heavy aileron differential on this wing- probably start with about 20% down compared to the up travel, with lots of up travel available. I may try implementing the differential totally within the elevon control horn geometry, rather than relying on the computer radio's programmability. This would allow other builders to fly this SOARBIRD on a very basic three channel radio system (as long as they have the Elevon mixing capability.)

I'll do photos & the setup details when I install the specially shaped control horns and set the servos in the wing tips; this will be simple to implement.

SOARBIRD #1 will use a pair of inexpensive BlueBird BM306 6.5 gram servos- plenty of control authority for this light weight slow flyer. I'll fly a CORONA RD620 receiver.

More Later!
