What is the correct drive angle for the motor, should it be straight or slightly downwards? Usually glider motors need to be quite much downwards, but how is it with Fox?

The motor angle is already moulded into the fuselage halves. No further adjustment should be necessary.

Few shots from a fortnight ago.

Shots taken during those prescious moments, when I was able to enjoy some stick time.
The light lift flying capability of this semi scale ship is superb. My Fox is always the first one to fly and test lift at the slope.

Ming, YOU ROCKS !

Thank you for the on board videos! I was more wander to see some video piloting(FPV) though.
I just receive the my FOX, very fast shipping !!! In first look in side the box I was likef..k EPO, but in closer look my chin almost hit the floor, IT IS VERY HIGH DENSITY, TOUGH AND JUICY REAL EPP ! First time I see something designed and moulded so well, this is precious airframe! I will order more for sure. The carbon reinforcement rods are ready installed in the hole length of the wings plus long joiner carbon tube.
So I will start work on it soon and you guys will see the FOX flying over Gotham City just as same as the Marvell's hero
Ming YOU ROCKS, man!
Thank you,
Georgi

Ok, that is almost straight then. Motor will be Dualsky XM400ES with AeroCam 9*5 and 3S1250mAh. Now I need just some building time to get it flying

Its about 450 g. This is with new SANWA/Airtronics 2.4 G 92824 Rx, 141 AL for elevator, 9g servo for rudder and a pair of Sx-0912 for ailerons. 1600 mAh NiMH pack powers the radio.
I used kit supplied glass filled strapping tape only, and did not cover the wing with film or the new stuff. Thats why she came out light. Yeah, the wing bends and twists, but she is a nice lift seeker and tester.

I found those are sold in sewing shops and are called tracing wheels. I bought one yesterday for 50p (under a dollar) in my local sewing and mending shop.

Question.
I don't see many Fox using stock DX21 sticker, should I keep to ship this sticker or I need to change another design?

Hi Ming, It's a difficult question to answer as different people have differing requirements, but my opinion would be not to bother as most modellers do their own thing anyway.

I rarely use sticks so it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they were not included. I'm sure some people love em though. Maybe you could default to not including them unless people specifically ask for them while ordering.
