I just put an X8R in mine last week. Although it comes with the paddles it has been suggested to me to change the paddles out to whiskers and run them outside the fuselage for little better reception. I did cut the small block of foam out to accommodate the rx, but it fits fine now. I've had it for 2 weeks and havent even maidened it yet. Tried to get a buddy (experienced glider pilot) to do a shake down flight for me this past weekend, but he was doing some house repairs for a friend, so hopefully I can launch it this long weekend coming up.

Also had the great help of mjcp to set me up a taranis eepe file for my RP. Read this post. And its model 5, not 6.

I'm flying my RP as a normal setup with flaps. I'm using a DX6 and have flaps programed with 50% and 100% settings. Normally as soon as I turn base on final approach I lower my flaps to 50% and that is plenty of flaps for a normal landing. If I'm in a tight spot I will use 100% flaps as I cross over then end of the runway. I rarely have to use 100% flaps. Once you get the hang of it, it gets to be a non issue and you can do spot landings pretty easy.

And have you mixed any elevator in at all? I tried just using straight Flaps and even moved just slightly it made my RP stall. I had to mix in elevator to level it out.

So I think I would like to replace my stock control rods amd sleeves with some goldenrods. Do the stock ones come out pretty easily, or are they glued in the entire length of the outer tubing?

Just pull and they come out easily without damaging the foam. They are glued in with the same white rubbery stuff that is often mistaken for silicone.

My suggestion would be to move the elevator servo to the tail and just replace the push rod for the rudder. It's easier than it sounds and it opens up valuable space in the receiver bay.
