Went out this morning and flew "crazy cricus airplane" as my wife calls Beast because of the way I fly it I guess . She makes me laugh at the nicknames she has for my planes. Sbach is "fast little black and white one" and Corsair is "WWII plane from TV series". She is a great sport with my r/c addiction. Had lots of fun as seems like attack black birds are gone or have mellowed out. I wonder about servo failure many people have had. I know in all my nitro planes I use better digital servos in the high performance ones. Maybe on these UMX planes the servos just dont put out enough torque for what is required in these high performance planes. What works fine in Champ or T-28 may not in UMX planes going 30+ mph. Just a thought .

I hate small cut vinyl, but the result sure looks cool.
Okay, thanks Wookster.

Wow. Your Beast looks so relaxed and smooth ... And so close to the ground! I wish I could fly that well!

Also works good to flatten bubbled decals.

The little "trim" sealing iron works great on small, hard to reach places...full size iron for wings and such. One reason my 4Site lived such a long and productive life....that and my awesome piloting skillz, of course.

Bud, flat and straight Bud
Amazing. Used my old Monkote iron and a Viva towel, wet. The creases in the horizontal stab took two tries. The first time they went away but came back when it cooled off. Second try they are 85% gone.

Went ahead and smoothed the wing decals at the same time. Worked good. Thanks Bud!

Now, should I just wrap scotch tape around the LE of the stab, or glue a small carbon rod? Hate to add weight that far back.

Great flying SLK! I love the peaceful nature of your flying! Im trying to do more of that. Often times I just open her up and fly full throttle but it's beautiful when you hold her back!

By the way - never been to Hamburg but I've spent a ton of time in the Koln/Dusseldorf area. Also some time in Munich. I love Germany.... A great place to visit!

I followed the steps to get flaps but it didn't work. I put the sticks in the position shown and plugged in the receiver but it doesn't switch to dual aileron mode. Help?

Excellent flying. Very smooth and you manage your speed very well. It looks so easy when you do it! Now I know how relaxed it can be flown and still do nice maneuvers I'm going to try it myself. Thanks.
