Doc, I worked with my warped wing a little yesterday. I heated it slowly while keeping a bind on it and held it while it cooled. I almost got it straight, I think one more go will get it. I flew it yesterday evening and it only took 2 clicks of aleron trim. Thanks for the tip!

I'de leave it alone. It gets to a point that it is not worth risking making it worse and I think you are there.

I think you're right doc, with the 2 clicks of trim it flies perfect straight lines and the slow stuff is rock solid and floaty like a foamie. I love it!

Looks like a blast!

Man, I wish more people at my field flew EF, let alone 3d. There's maybe a handful of people I know who even fly 3d at my field, and it's pretty rare to see them.

clubs are weird. Some pretty much only do 3d others do not. I like a mixture of all flying! All flying is cool as long as it's RC based. Kites don't fit in well at the club hehe

I think once a person gets into a brand they like they tend to go all the way and get all the models. Not unique to EF. Only thing stopping me would be the extreme amount of money to buy all of them!

That is what i like about our club. We have around 80 members, and there is a good mixture of pilots. Some like myself fly 3D, some fly scale, some fly pattern, some fly nothing but small foamies and just bore holes in the sky. We all get along and enjoy watching one another fly.
