Just cut the center out of the Mamba wings. I think Jordan may design and supply a more dedicated version if their is any demand.

I need more stickers..

Do be careful, I recall they had a lot of these planes go with wing failures when pushed too hard. That was several years ago when China started pumping them out, so they may have improved?? As I recall folks were putting a lot of watts into them.

Hey SkySwiper. This is at Norco. Right? What are the wind directions that work for this place. Looks like you had the whole place to yourself.

Also. Have you flown what they call "The Slab"? That 300ft west-facing quarry face?

Yeah a bit rocky. It is an old quarry.

I'm working on a portable net for setting up in rocky environs. Just kidding but I should. Like a small football field goal.

I want to know more about the front-side wind directions of Norco. I know... This is not an OC site. I'll look elsewhere.

Friday at Lily's

Thanks to Trisme for the test flight. My DAM mustang flew in less wind than I thought it would thanks to the long hill at Lilys.

Here is some video of Trisme's re maiden of his UAV thingy..

Hehehehe, I love the first maiden. Did you ever figure out what the issue was?

Troy, are you now checked out at Lillys and just have a few signatures to collect? Very cool!

Today's clear, but rains in the forecast tomorrow. Should be interesting.

Yes not enough up trim and elevator throw. Took a half ounce out of the nose and increased the elev. throw, flew it yesterday pretty successfully. Quick little handful. This morning, I cut the fins out and took out the under camber from the center section of the body. I then re-glued the fins back in. I should now be able to take out some of the up trim it took to fly level. I will make thicker control rods too.

Tom, that thing sorta reminds me of my old JADE Shogun. A neat thing to see fly but a handful and not the easiest thing to launch.

-Jonathan
now comfortably checked in and much better prepared to brave the cold

A little help with wingeron

I bought a glider about a year ago at a garage sale, had no idea what it was, but it had pivoting wings so I thought, "Thats cool!"

Turns out it's a Turbo S wingeron glider.

Anyway I wanted to try to install the servo for the wings. Each wing has a ball tyupe joint on it's lever. Anyone know what I need to buy to attach the servo linkage to these ball joints?

Thanks for your help
