I installed the inter-aileron linkage horns this morn...since the Chinglish instructions are super lame, I decided to "improve" the setup by putting them facing up and down, toward each other with the angles pointing inward, out of the way. After the epoxy set..I started playing with them...oh chit..duh...the way I had them, the angles/lengths of the inter-aileron linkages wouldn't work...damn geometry! Haven't built up any bipes before. Had to cut 'em out and reinstall like the inst. pics show- pointing down and angled back. Now the linkages won't have to "stretch" w/ each input...lol!

been a rough year in motor sports.
A 450????...that'll look like a buffalo with our gnatty little mCPX's and Genius' buzzing around it.
on the other hand, you can use it to prune your trees and higher up stuff.

Gahhh..I'm so dang pizzed at myself.
Stuffed my "go to" daily driver Extra...but good, just a lil bit ago.
Broke the cardinal rule, "practice new moves three mistakes high"
Was messing around with fully cross-controlled flat spins...enjoying a little too much I guess.
<*crack!!*>...nailed 'er right into the parking lot, nose first.
Dunno if I'm going to attempt a nose-rebuild again (have to check my 6mm Depron stock), or finally just retire the airframe. (got a backup one waiting in box). This airframe is about six seasons' old and getting really tired anyhoo...
Bud, dumb-thumbed it but good this time Bud

Kinda neat that we, as stay-on-the-ground pilots, have the luxury of walking away from a major mistake...unlike our full-scale counterparts.
