VIP racer, CG and control throws

Hi,

I bought a VIP from someone and I don't have the instructions. Can anyone tell me the recommended CG range and the control throws? Also do they recomment aileron differential and how much.

Thanks,

Jordan

The designers recommend CG at exactly 33 mm behind leading edge.
Due to the single servo, aileron differential cannot be adjusted. For 1st flight, try aileron up 4mm left and right as measured at trailing edges. Elevator up/down 2 mm measured at trailing edge. Adjust to taste. Good luck!

33mm?????? I have mine at 41mm.... flies great, not overly sensitive to elevator.. I'd be afraid of snapping out of turns w/ the cg at 33m

Yes, I wondered about that when I looked at that wing. TLAR says 41 is about right. Today, I saw one fly at 33 mm. Time to finish my own and see for myself.

Jordan, you must let me (and Sal) know when you are going to be flying the VIP.
What are you putting in it for motor, etc.?
