Have mine nearing completion, want to add nav lights to it. Any recommendation on what set of lights to get?

From a different thread... they are more or less, neutral.

Well, I have completed my build...

I have done it. And I'm going to post a build log. Its in 1080P if you have some hog bandwith or less if you don't. It's 45 minutes long and uses the mods I have learned on this thread. I had no one to help with the filming so I showed completed sequences and still the video is 45 minutes long.(note to self: when self narrating video try to refrain from opening each sequence with "well") I hope you enjoy my adventure. I'll get the maiden on video too

Awesome Dave. Where do you fly in visalia? My dad is a member of the club out in Exeter but I don't think there runway is long enough for jets without brakes.

Tulare Condors. We have the entire north parking lot of the Calif Farm Show parking lot. I'm guessing 300 feet wide by 2500 feet long paved.. Great for EDFs and any planes with small wheels.

The Exteter club just got a new coat of black top and paint. Looks very nice. But, its a bit shor for EDF's as you mentioned.

Very nice video, but looks like front door cover installed backward.

You must have missed the part in the video. Showing how the fiberglass was factory painted backwards. And fit precisely when flipped "backwards" ...

Oh, haha, must missed that part. I would like to share my exp with you before you go maiden. I crashed mine at the 12th flight due to too much aileron reflex on the final landing turn, down wind leg.....Tip stalled and death spiral dive. I was experimenting with flap+aileron relex on the last two flights, and here's my conclusion: I'd suggest you don't use flap+aileron reflex during ur first flight, or keep your speed up if you decide to use it, or use it only when you going straight don't use it on the bank turn. I don't have VG on mine, but mine is probably lighter than yours (6s and wemo setup at 7lb). I hope my crash exp can aid ur successful maiden. Looking forward to watch your maiden! Good luck.

btw, I think wind fences should be installed in the middle of the wing where flap meets aileron, it works as a lifter divider. The lifting force from wing root to tip is like this: High ----> low, if you have fence in the middle, then it's like: High-->low|high-->low

How much reflex did you have in it ?

The first time, I have about 1mm, and with half flap, which seems to fly just fine, didn't notice much difference when flying only with half flap. (I'm flying circles with flap and aileron reflex deployed all time just to test) Second time, increase reflex to 2-3mm, with half flap, This time, notice the nose rised up a little while flying straight, which is cool. In the up wind bank turn, plane becomes unstable, but once it goes straight, it resume normal (I have 3/4 throttle), on the final landing turn, I reduced the throttle to 1/2, the speed seems OK to me, probably because it's down wind, tip stall happened on the lower wing during the bank, plane went into death spiral...not able to recovery. I had 10 successful flight without aileron reflex and 1 successful flight with minimal reflex, and I was landing at the same way on the 12th flight as I landed in the previous 11, so I'm pretty convinced that too much aileron reflex caused the plane to slow down too much, and very likey caused the tip stall on the lower wing during bank turn.
