Meshuggah;

I wanted to build the model per plans, but wound up with a heavy tail and not enough nose to counter balance it :-)
If you know how to SWAP ail and rud, I'm interested. I can copy one to another with mixes, but can figure out how to swap them..

Hi Ryan;

I understand. Thanks for the reply.
If you don't mind though, there's enough detail in the picture for me to cut one up. Where's the CG?

Ryan,
Your canard is baised on the Japanese Shinlin is it not? If not it looks really close to that plane. Looks like you got the canard just right so that it will fly fine.

Can't blame you about plans. No one wants their plans taken and used by someone else with out money being paid for them. Just not right.

To swap two channels you need to copy the other channel (one mix for each channel)

Then to kill the original input, you mix the channel to itself -100%/-100%

It takes 4 mixes to fully swap a channel.

You two are dead on! I just tried it.

I know I took several shots at this more than a year ago on a Vapor brick and just couldn't get it. I could mix one to the other, but when I tried to zero out a channel, I killed that channel.
With this and mixing the THRO over to the GEAR channel for an external ESC, it makes the Vapor bricks as useful as the AR6400 to me for my BL/4ch/Aileron planes and 10 bucks cheaper..

Anyway, thanks a bunch!

Here is a micro 3D/F3P plane I built. AR6400L, AS2000L, Sukhoi motor, soon GWS 5043, 110mah, AUW 31g. It flies mich slower than the sukhoi even though it weighs the same, it just has more wing area. It is my fist, so thats why it is a little heavy. 3mm depron.

I was not so happy with the YGE regulators thats why I tried something different! So i used the Xetronix regulator! To NOT burn the AR6400 i use a diode to reduce the volltage!

Hi there!!

Wow, the stuff you build is just amazing. I'm a micro plane builder as well but compare to your skill I'm more like nothing!!!
Just few little questions for your advise. First, where can I purchase the material that you use for building the fuselage. Second, how did you get the fuselage become 3D dimensional? Are there any techniques for building great planes like yours? (mine is always "squireish" looking)

Hope you don't mind to answer my questions

Thanks =D
