Thanks for the link to crow setup, that I can do, I was just hoping someone on this forum was using it and what surface deflections they were happy with, thanks.

we started with 3mm and now we are at about 6mm, I would recommend the same, start with 3 or 4mm and get the feel and then increase it to find what you like

What you need is a more expensive hobby so that your wife will be grateful you are only spending on toy planes. motor sports and yachting will see her begging to buy you your next Habu.

Thanks, I'll start there then. probably put the aileron reflex on a separate flight mode initially but with the small amounts of up aileron it should still roll well. That should give enough drag to steepen up the approach glide path a bit!

Yea. I think a good boat or bike threat would calm most complaints.
I have no wife. And girlfriends have no say! Woot!!

It's actually amazing how slow you can get the Habu down too.The Crow set-up is really not needed once your landing skills are honed and sharpened, but if your runways are short where you fly, Crow is a nice radio set-up to help out in tight situations. If you need help with the set-up and have a X9303, PMME with your concerns.

Super pissed off right now!! the counter sunk screws (2 of them) broke off while assembling the retracts. I heard a pop, thought the wood mounts cracked. I back the rest of the screws out and then another popped. My so far uneventful build has gone in the toilet. I am really at a loss as to what to do. I was thinking I should dremel out the metal portion of the screw but dont have a bit small enough. The other option I was thinking was to cut around the top of the screw to expose enough of the thread to get at it with pliers. Any ideas? Anyone else have this happen to them? I cant believe how weak these screws are with such a nice kit....help is appreciated.

Once I do get them out, any idea where to find a stronger replacement screw? I wont be using the rest of them.

yes I did that! Even after reading all the warnngs here.I f you dremel around the screw you will be able to grip the exposed end with a pliers or a small vice grips.I then filed the top of the hole with expoxy and micro ballons and redrilled. I used small countersunk wood screws 3.5mm to fit the retract.Does'nt take long when you know what you are doing.

Cheers
Steve
