First post, first scratch build and first question....
It's nice to see an active online community for the hobby enthusiasts!
Well as the title mentions this is my first post and to avoid repetition if you want to get to know me check my profile.
I am currently in the middle of a scratch built HLG using the terminator plans that I found a link to from here (can't remember the site as I am at work and on my smart phone) I have step by step photos and will post them to this thread when I'm home and can hopefully receive some sound advice from the pros.
Now for the question. The next step in the build is the wing and I'm in a toss up between balsa covered and bagging the wing. Suggestions? She's going to be a thermaler.
I am also in the market for a full TX/RX servo setup using a v tail. I was considering the dx6i and would like some feedback from others who have used this tx for v tail Sailplanes. (I know the tx you use may be great and all but if you haven't actually used it then please don't post a "the xxxxxx transmitter is soooooo much better") I currently have one enroute to me so this is the one I may be using if there isn't too much trouble with it.
I am new to HLGs but not to RC aircraft (fixed and helis)
Thank you for your time and 2 cents.

If using a DX6i for a V-tail set-up, DO NOT use elevon mixing. I haven't used mine in over a year, so I can't remember if there is an actual V-tail setting. If not, you need to actually go in and program the only two available mixes into each other.
Here's some info regarding the DX6i elevon SNAFU.
This thread explains it all:
