I think he is reporting two different thing:
- On the rudder he doesn't have the long arm and as per the above got close to 45.
- On the elevator he does have the long arm, does get the full throws but seems to suffer from blowback.

correct, wedoitall?

Would love for you to send me/post that article from Ben you mentioned...

that is going to be set-up specific to your equipment, I would drill 3 holes a little further out than the stock arm and start with the middle

How many weeks are we going to spend discussing Wedoitall's rudder problems? He's lucky he seems to have about 50 people all concerned about his setup.

I REALLY hope you get it all sorted out Wedoitall

Well I just snapped the wingtube on my 48 edge this morning Was attempting to do a snap to hover and the wingtube just snapped instead and the plane spiralled 50 feet into the ground while the left wing just floated down and landed 50 feet away from the crash site.

Oh well, it happens. Broke the wingtube right where the fuselage meets the wing. Had over 200 flights on it so I can't complain. I will try and fix it over the winter I suppose. Still have the 51 Slick I need to fix first.

Lucky I have a nib sitting around for just such an occasion

why are we hearing so any issues with the wingtubes from 3dhs recentally? I wonder why their wingtubs keep having issues.

Isn't it funny, how it is usually the relative Newbie that comes into a forum and starts telling people what they should or should do?
