There will definitely be video of the maiden...from multiple angles...so it better be a good maiden....no pressure or nuthin Jeff.

Good tip on the nut, btw. Looks like that'd work pretty well.

That sounds like a really good idea.

Sounds like you'll have a whole camera crew. Hopefully there should be at least 3 new 57" 330s thereon Saturday.

Nut for pull pull adjusting works great. If a wire's tension needs tweaking, you loosen the set screw, pull a little on the wire to give the nut some travel space, run the nut in or out, let off on the wire, tighten the set screw, and you are good to go.

What Lipos are you planning to run in the SC?

I am using the Reaper GR-45 and ordered the Rhino 3700mAh 4S 14.8v 25C. I have both 14x7 and 14x8 wooden and APC Electric props to play with as well to see if there is any difference in the way the plane flies.

They said the back order should be in at the end of September / beginning of October. I may have to break down and order a $150 pack (in stock) from another store that can get delivered more quickly. I would like to see it in the air much sooner than that.

Hope we can soon look forward to a video of your plane's maiden.

Interesting idea. I may try that.

I second that, using a nut on the pull-pull is a GREAT idea.

And...

GREAT. My maiden flights are usually not so exciting. Take off, roll inverted, adjust CG, check knife edge...

hehe...

How's your SC coming along Joe? Will you have it ready for a maiden Sat? We could fly a double maiden!

(that would take a little pressure off me... )

You and Joe might a little more ballistic with the Reaper 45.
I may have to bolt on the Reaper 60 and hit it!

Is there any disadvantage to installing the aileron servos the other way. (output shaft closer to the aileron). It seems I get just a little bit more reach with the extension if I try it this way.

Thanks
Scott

Mike. If your using the lighter motor and 4s, you can mount it on the battery tray right at the wing tube.
Here's a picture.

Probably not a big deal, but I like to turn the RX the other way to get the antenna further from the carbon fiber wing tube on the light setup.
