Fun, short Vids, there Dogdude!
Love the gulls chasing.

Thanks Chino
The "Blacks" is the Black Mountain in South Wales UK, about 15 miles north of Swansea

Dogdude - can you post up some photos of your Aileron set up? When turning your bird - do you initiate via ruddervator or ailerons?

Thanks for posting your vids......enjoyed watching them

Here you are
2 cheap 9g servos and some rods I had laying around, a measured "V" cut in the foam making sure not to go all the way through, cleaned up the cut afterwards, "excersised" the hinge so it's not too stiff
It could maybe do with some carbon fibre rods in the ailerons to stiffen them but they work OK
A tiny bit of reflex makes her fly better

Can I echo Twisted's question about how you initiate the turn?

Looks a good job on the ailerons, from memory it's been done a few times before with mixed results, but yours seem to work really well.
