Elevator Throw

well still too windy here to fly,

I went to adjust the throws and rates so it would be 100% ready and the ez-clips fell off the Aile. rods again after I reattached them and even put a drop of CA on them So I upgraded to some heaver wire and a bigger DU-Bro clip they are nice now.

In the box was an addendum saying the Manual was wrong and that the throws should be

Elev - High 3/16 - Low 1/8
Rudder - High 11/16 - low 1/2
Aile - High 1/2 - Low 3/8

Just curious to know if anyone uses the original specs for the elevator because that just doesn't seem right. Granted I have not flown it but even on high rates 3/16 just seems small.

Anyway It's 100% ready hopefully this weekend!

OK NOW I'm jealous.... You got to FLY and got RAIN.

I can't remember the last time we saw rain, I think we've had 3/4 an inch since January. We need it!

Grumble grumble...... s'ok I'm sweatin my butt off cutting trees and turning them into little chips of wood its a decent work out to take down the frustration, wind gusts are down to 12MPH so maybe tonight I fly....

Haven't had a chance to fly mine yet. Every day it either rains or its cold and windy.
Gonna try the stock prop but, if the performance is marginal, an apc 9x5 or 9x6 will go on.
Just wondering how the landing gear is gonna hold up on a grass field.

Lucky...

You can try a 9x5 or 9x6 APC prop but I am almost certain that you will not get the same amount of thrust as you do with the stock prop, if your using the stock motor that came with the plane. I tried changing the prop to an APC 9X5 prop and some other folks on this thread also tried and we all got the same results. the stock motor and a APC 9x5 or 9X6 prop equals less thrust.

It seems that the APC E series props have most of the pitch and width is close to the hub and develop thrust in that area. Well we have a cowl and spinner blocking most of that. An APC SF series prop has fatter blades and pitch further out from the hub, more like the stock prop. I have a 9x6SF on her now and seems more like the stock prop.

Perhaps a 9x7 apc is the way to go. I tried a 9x6 and there was barley enough thrust to keep the plane in the air. Smcleodvt were you using the stock motor that came with the plane.
