Fair call, something tells me those planes aren't exactly going to be EASY to repair when the ground jumps out in front you.

Yeah expo is a definite, was planning of going with 60% travel and 40% expo.

I'll set it all up on the ground first to test those settings and adjust accordingly BEFORE I hit the air.

omfg gaga and tracy grimshaw on tv. They both need to eat a bullet

Meebs i would go with a little less movement on the ailerons and more on the elev.

If i was you i would actually only allow very little movement on the rudder as you dont need to fly with the rudder. You can yank and bank.

Why dont you put up some pics of the finished 3d hawk so we can do some checks over it before you maiden it. Also make sure all the control surfaces are moving the right way before you fly it.

yeah i want a RB but they havent showed up at hobbyking like you said they would. Im sure it wont be long though. Oh well.

Im very happy with my extra 260 for now. Have added some landing gear on it now and massive wheels. Might have to hinge the control surfaces next.
