Congrats JC! Sounds like a pretty self-rewarding accomplishment!

Hey guys, I just wanted to pass this along, in case any of you are web-browsing today. Be extra careful when visiting the Twisted site today. I was over there just moments ago... perusing the pretty planes, and cool stuff.... and BAM! before I knew it, I had a cart full of stuff and I was staring at a paypal receipt. Don't say I didn't warn you!

The Pitts.... I don't need it.... and the ES is still VERY new to me... but i knew from the second it left my hand on the first pack of the maiden, I had to have more planes like this one! Just smooth and true... like no other. I've never flown a bi before but from watching vids of this one fly, I'm going to give it a shot. I highly doubt I'll hate it.

Sounds like you've reached a mile stone, it's a great feeling and what keeps us coming back for more, always another target to reach. Congratulations on the rollers and post us up some video's when you get them down.

I notice my roll rate is pretty slow. No biggie, could be the wind. I had it on dual rates 100% throw and 150% travel like usual. Hmm.

I come in close and realize why my rolls suck. I forgot to put the aileron control rod back on the left wing after I glued it back together. She still rolls quite well with one aileron flapping away! I tried to fix it but the setscrew in the control arm keeper vibrated out.

Anyone know what size they are?

Don't know the size Six, if you were closer I'd pass a few complete ones to ya. Tend to order extras when ever I place an order. I had a pushrod give out on the yak this past weekend. Didn't even know till I got it close to me and saw only one aileron working. Was rolling pretty good too with just one aileron.
