Hey guys I'm still lurking. Been busy as I was covering SEFF for Fly RC. Didn't get much time to fly there but I did get some cool shots of Joe flying the Edge's. Glad the clear SFG's are working well. I hope to get mine back out soon but first I need to switch it to my Futaba 8FG. Loving that radio since I picked it up a few months ago.

anhedral?

Whilst looking at the yak head-on hanging from the ceiling, looks like the wing has a little anhedral built-in.... is it just me, or my plane, or by design? Could explain some of the unique flying characteristics in rolls and fast precision flying.

Hey vin, have you ever considered making sfg's for planes where they bolt on the end, the clear look would be awesome.

It would not be hard to do them. In fact they would be easier as you would not have to worry about the fit of the tabs just the alignment of the mounting holes. Maybe I'll try to make a set for my 72" Extra SC and see how they go.

tips

more low roller practice and sfg durability testing. the hot glue peels right off w/o ripping the covering, then reapply!

If I do "low roller practice..." I'll need more than just hot glue....

LOL ... just to make you feel better, I broke the landing gear one one side too! $15 + 10 in shipping, but I'll take that failure mode - the fuse is intact. It made a huge snap noise when it broke - I was expecting more damage.

I should have kept it closer-in ... that's rule #2, rule #1 being to stay higher when going downwind.

Just thinkin but some real good SFG prototypes could be made out of regular playing cards in about a half hour. Maybe use the jokers out of the deck?
