So when might we see your thoughts on the new wing?!?!?! It will fit the original fuse, yes? And how about the wing "joiner"? Different from the original?? Sweetie "The Impatient One" wants to KNOW!! YESTERDAY!!

Seriously though I'd like to get one ordered, along with the "joiner" as I assume the bubble level in it is different, once you can confirm it fits the original fuse.

I've noticed there is very little travel in all control surfaces so I moved the elevator servo arm to the tallest hole on the control horn and added a little up pitch to the elevator at resting position as well.
Hopefully this will do the trick.
I will try the same and see if this fixes the issue.

As for that RTL no throttle issue, might wanna try other people's Vector setting, i think someone (Sweetie?) uploaded their settings here.

Also, I would change the motor mount angle to stock for now.... I think it's always safer to maiden the airframe in manufacturer's recommended set up, test it out, trim it out, before making changes. And this way you would have a good feel for the effect of any changes you make to the airframe... I personally did not find a plane having a substantial nose-down tendancy under throttle, so i never bothered with changing the motor angle. Everyone build their plane a bit differently, and it might be inconsistency out of the factory, so it's always a good idea to maiden in stock configuration, and make sure it's trimmed out and tested, before making modifications.
You might be correct, but the new angle seems to do fine with me so I think I'll just keep it the way it is now.

I will search for Sweeite's vector settings and try them out.
Thanks alot.
