Only one servo get stuck at 70% (or even at 100%), the other one just has a jitter issue, which, well, i hadnt see before. contacts seems good. But, you're saying you find it normal that you can't have enough throw to do flat spins? Because I don't think it is. They're advertised in the video too if I'm not wrong. Anyway, I'll probably just replace that servo.. and the other one too.

What is your SPM file?

It's in this post. I should probably find a more visible place for it. Maybe start a separate thread for Stryker SPM files?

The post explains what I did. I was hoping to fine-tune it, but the weather has been too cruddy to test my latest tweaks.

Hi Jim,

Just loaded your file into my DX8 after moving the servo connectors around as suggested. Everything works fine except for the right aileron is not working. However, this control surface works fine when applying elevator- the control surface moves and moves in the right direction.

Any suggestions on what is going on?

The only thing I did so far was erase the +30 sub trim on the rudders...

Thanks,
Pete

Oh I see thanks. However, I'm using a DX7 ;-)

Hey guys. How much wind can this plane easily handle? It doesn't have AS3X, so I'm a little concerned about wind handling.

Almost as much as AS3X planes, just not nearly as smooth.

Hmmmm....that's odd. You switched the right aileron servo from the elevator port to the pitch(CH6) port, right? What Airware are you running?

Yes, I think I switched it correctly but I will check again. I am using 2.06 which I think is the latest...

Confused...it should overwrite the model I copy it into, shouldn't it? Wondering if I have some setting off...

Will delve into this later tonight and report back...

Thank you for your help!

Pete

I'm revising my idea of how much wind it can handle. My pz trojan was getting shoved around but mostly did fine in the wind, even got in some good harrier landings. But my um Stryker got blown downwind while high and was lost in the woods, despite frantic corrections. If most everyone else leaves the field in disgust, you are taking your chances for sure. .

Wait....I thought downwind turns were a myth.
(I kid, I kid). Hope you didn't hurt it too badly. Sounds like you were pushing the limits!

The Stryker can handle "winds" better than most of the newer eFlite birds, but "gusts" are a different story. I don't think the Stryker needs AS3X, but it would have some benefit. It would be even better if the AS3X had some built-in logic to never overdrive the linear servos!

The Stryker has a rather large wing area compared to a trojan. It flies very well in the wind (IMO), even gusty, but if you expose the maximum surface area to the wind, it will get blown away much faster than a trojan ever will ;-). That + low initial speed = no control.

I like to play with that as it feels like "surfing" the air when its windy, but one should be careful when doing it

True dat.

Also, if you have a servo lock-up while you're flying in high wind, it's gone. (As the saying goes, "Ask me how I know.......")
