De nada, senor. I also copied that stuff to the Info/FAQ posts at http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...6#post22886490

Lots of people ask such questions, thought it might come in handy.

Every model plane I've ever owned (and I've owned lots) does that to some degree. Including super-stable, easy-to-fly ones like the Easystar and the Hobbyzone Champ. Has there EVER been one that didn't get pushed around by wind gusts?

well i think it is the extra wide wings,takes very little wind to grab this SSS and turn it,or make it rise,and if CG is just a little off, well then you have some real fun it is tail heavy to start with so if you get CG off a bit your riding a porpoise, but mostly it is the width of wings,also i have never had a plane that loses aileron control in a steep climb or dive like this one. Once CG is on and you learn the habits of the SSS she is a great flyer and floats forever

If you mix in flaprons it helps the dive and climb control.

Normal flight mode I have:

Left Ail 60% AIL
Left FLP 80% AIL
Right FLP -80% AIL (remember the servo is reversed)
Right Ail 60% AIL

landing/takoff mode:

Left ail 100% AIL
Left FLP 40% FLP+10% AIL
Right FLP 40% FLP-10% AIL
Right Ail 100% AIL

Mixing flaprons reduces problems with wing twist.

I had some local guys that bought the stuff for me, they wanted "footage" of a specific area. So i got free cameras, and equipment and a temporary FAA approval letter for commercial use (since the footage is not for hobby) gotta love those government guys... they are fast!
