Hi Bob, I know on my JR XP783 when it is in Sailplane mode it rearranges the channel assignments on the RX. This might be what you are running into. Recheck your manual to see if that might be it.

Wayne - I am gluing the 1/8th by 1/4 strips to the fuselage sides today. Slow but sure, progress is being made.

Thank you for that info. That's good to know. It really doesn't matter, I guess, as long as they work like they are supposed to.

Hi Guys,

I got all the wire routed in the leading edge of the wings.. I got some of the programing done. It's going to be pouring rain tomorrow. I'm going to work on the spoiler servos. Stay tuned. It's time for Pinot Gris and cheese with Foxy.

2 and 5 is where they should end up when you do a left/right servo set up.Just make sure to mark the extensions so they don't end up backwards when you assemble the bird at the field,it can make for a real short flight!

Hi Scottie,

Thanks for the support. I marked them as you suggested. I'm going to start working on the top sheeting today.
Just having some C4 Krank. Stay tuned.

Got rudder?

Ok now I can set the throws as I remembered to build the rudder and I found the bag with the rest of the servos in it.The covering should be here next week and I may be able to start the dope finish on the fuse as the wether looks like it should be warm enough to work outside about mid week.

Scottie,

It looks from the pictures that you tapered the little piece of fuselage that goes under the rudder. If that is correct, did you taper the inside balsa pieces prior to gluing up the fuselage?

Hi Guys,

I got the top outboard skin made for the R/H wing. See photo. Now I have to figure out a way to set the washout while I glue the skin on. Stay tuned.

Hi Guys,

Looks like the 44 weeks of rain is in full swing again. See radar. It's about time for Pinot Gris and cheese with Foxy. Stay tuned.
