Would it make a difference if one were to move the elevator horn farther out toward the trailing edge? Seems to me it would help with the leverage and smooth things out.

As of right now,i like it alot...with the shorter servo arm i redid,and the other fixes,i have real good servo travel without having to back the TX down to much,and all is smooth and tight with no play in any direction (but i have seen on a bunch of the Vipers,where they fix it all up at the TE)

Yup! He's a mad man. Takes carbon fiber and turns it into grossly overpowered, works of art projectiles, and sells then for well below what they are worth. A mad man for sure

You can get the X-Plane airframe for the same price as the Full CarbonTS3 DLG your drooling over

Lol yes, but that is money strictly for sailplanes. Which, after my P2 comes in I won't need the "sail plane fund" anymore and those savings will go towards a real F5D. Also the nice thin about sailplanes, such as the P2, its completed with only 4 servos a battery and RX. No $200 motor and $140 speed control haha. But the time will come. Soon. Just need to get into a house first

Why live in a 500 thousand dollar house, when you can live under a 40 million dollar bridge?

Thank You Sebastian ,it is all Jacko's fault
He sent me to his friend,real artist, for help and here is a results.
I am trying to launch that site piece by piece and make it work.
But not easy for me as I am a first timer with this.
Your plane is somewhere there as well I will dig her out of pile of pix
then everybody will be able to look at what You still have in the shelf .
Sorry,I am pretty bad with "Who bought ,When and and What" but
if You'll tell me how much I charged for her I will tell what was a lay up.
One thing I know that spread tow fab is twice stronger then regular plane carbon and ONLY plane which not vent through the shipping tortures successfully was Yours and I am really sorry.
Yuri.
