SO many comments...tnx guys!

Again though, one flight, the maiden at that, so I literally only had it in the air for about 3 or 4 minutes. As far as speed and whether it flies scale or not...well, I like my war birds scale. This one is big and at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle it looks fantastic IMO. I did not really open her up to full throttle bur I do not think she is going to be "fast" per se? Which is perfectly OK with me.

On the elevator servo stripping, I did set up the travels and had dialed the throws back because as some of you mentioned, the foam hinges were restricting movement. I thought about replacing the hinges with pins or dubros but I like to give the designer the benefit of the doubt and at least try it as he designed it first. After a few flights, I am willing to modify as necessary.

Congrats Bajora, Glad you caught that servo problem before the next flight.
What do you think caused it? Are the hinges that stiff? Oh yea what size servo is used on the elevator?
One more question, How did you get that bird in the states?
Thanks, TW
