I was up early on Saturday morning to get to the field and (eventually) get the ADX airborne and what happens? It was raining. In the middle of summer. Go figure...

I've done all my CG's inverted - including the ADX.. Does it matter ?

I'm taking my small foamie to work tomorrow, myself and a mate are going for a lunchtime flying session. Unfortunately the place we fly at isn't suitable for the X..

Typical that the weekend is past the wind drops..

without buying a roll of green from them, or asking them to send you some, i would look for some clear ultracote.

It definitely should be in the box. Where abouts are you located? You should get back in touch with your local PA distributor.

ac777drvr,

If you are in the US please call the shop and speak to Cheryl or send her an email at usa@precisionaerobatics.com. She can get you taken care of. As Brett said, it should have been in the box in the bag with the scoops and wheels.

Best Wishes!!

At last..

Wind was ok yesterday so finally got the plane maidened. What a non-event and this I say with the greatest of pleasure. She flies amazing well and easy, I just puttered around on low rates for a while to get her trimmed, only took 1 click of up and it was hands off..

I did a bit of high-rate flying and loved it though made sure I was high enough though that will change soon, I can never contain myself for very long.

Only 4 flights in and already it's (by far) my favourite plane!!
