Congrats Doc on your maiden. Looked good. Nice weather!

Let us know what you think about that new Torque motor.

Uhhhh, thanks, but that was the maiden of the first one. The new one hasn't flown yet. We are socked in really good today so it probably won't be until tomorrow afternoon.

Thanks Doc,

Gotta steal Scotts book back from the guy I loaned it to It seems that once your off the wing and on the prop a frame of reference in FS is counter-intuitive. For some reason no book I ever read on aerodynamics gives any tips on post stall maneuvering. Its all great fun to learn though. I have been through your blog before. It is a great reference.

Note: You will notice the pushrod connector nuts have two different sides. Make sure the side with the small but pronounced countersink is exposed.

Double Note: Notice the elevator pushrod has a carbon fiber tube for reinforcement. Nice touch!!

Jeff,

What hole did you use in your Dubro servo arms? In your photo you have everything at the bottom, what this your final position?

In the manual the elevator arm is 3rd or 2nd from the bottom on the long arm (Hard to tell from photo)?

That little countersunk area makes a great little pool for the CA to run into and get a bite on the threads.

The latest blog article has all my set up photos. The only difference is that since then I have moved the aileron pushrod out one hole at the servo arm.

I noticed IPS motors was using different size arms from what Jeff used - so I was trying to determine the best setup! Thanks Doc I will go look at your photos...

Installed the power 32 and did a power run up, right at 900 watts on 4s 4000. I guess that will be adequate

To get the most effecient servo set up:

Set the end point adjustment in the transmitter to 140%

install the push rod to the contro horn on airplane (the extra 330 only has one hole)

Use the hole on the servo arm closest to the center that will give you the desired throw in high rate.

This will give you the best resolution and servo power

Mike,
E-mail sent. I did use the outer holes on the arms for full 3D throws.
