A couple shots. Tried to borrow a scale with no luck. Guess it's time to buy a replacement (no weights yet)

Initial look at throws look good. Main concern is up aileron throw. May be a little conflict between the wing TE and the control surface. (Is it common to have to touch the bottom of the TE with fine sandpaper?)

Maybe I could tie the two black terminals together on the female mpx? Have not potted them in the wings yet.

I would go ahead and replace it now, so you do t need to worry at all.

I am not sure how you wired it, you should only need 5 of the 6 if you ganged the powers together.

Scott, yes you will probably have it sand the TE a bit.

I cannot wait until Steve gets these more widely available. It's an intriguing ship. Exciting to see a project like this coming to fruition. Go Steve go

Its not a bad idea to tie together the + and the - wires on the MPX plugs, if you are running separate wires anyway. They provide redundancy this way.

Kolosun,

Thank you for posting up the videos. Great to see one of the flying sites you flew and the conditions.
