Mine now has servos attached but still turns right a hell of a lot better than left . Is it a leg chop job or motor adjust ment . Trim is fully left and still turns left slowly as opposed to right which are smooth and quick ??? Many thanks
Gaz aka bacon boy

Ps my buddy made a super spam. However the darkness of kryptoniteand Branson pickle inthe colleague who threw it for him meant a vertical dive only 3ft in front . Thrower claims the legs kicked him!!! Jealous I think as it was going to be entered into a build comp. needs surgery now . But I will test fly next time with him . Nearly finished the 62 inch as well. Just the power plant . Will standard servo 3003 be too heavy??

From your description, when you fly him arms level his nose should be in a nose right yaw. I would slice the inside of the right ankle and bend that foot toward center 1/4" and glue with CA. Fly. Add another 1/4" if necessary.

Need to see Superspam and Bacon Boy in the air together. Plenty of power on Spamy. Noticable nose right yaw causing you to correct with left elevon giving you a significant left sideslip. Do the foot mod on the right foot and get the yaw out. With all that power he will be a blast to fly. Looks great in the air and will add him to the flying list.

Hi Guys,

I believe that I have my CNC machine back together enough
to start making kits again.
I have some foam stocks and a have another 2 cases
of depron arriving on Wednesday.

I've made web page changes, so if you discover
something amiss please let me know right away.
Also NO MORE Black depron offerings.

I still have to get shipping boxes locally.
A trip to deepest darkest downtown Indianapolis is my
next step on Monday, then I'll be ready to go.

Thanks for your patience while I moved 2400 miles,
bought a new house and moved back in. Wheew !

As always I'm here to serve.

I was thinking of reinforcing the sides and elevons of my 31" Flyguy with carbon fiber. Is that necessary? Thanks.

No. The 31" is so light that the sides hold up well. The feet are fine without carbon.

Re: 31" Flyguy. The arm plate comes in two pieces. After gluing them together I discovered that the side tabs do not match up with the arm plate slots. I am making new slots to fit.

My prototype from Bob came with the halves joined so I can't answer the question. Are they too narrow or wide? From my pictures, do they appear to be in the right location for and aft? You've got one of my favorite flyers.

re: 31" Flyguy: I attached the breast plate which widened the sides in top front. This will make the arm plate slots fit on the side tabs correctly. I assumed the breast plate was the same width as the center plate; it was less. From the pictures the breast and center plates look the same width. Thank you.

Our goal was to provide that 15 deg side angle.
With the different sizes the angle is almost assured.

Best

Re: 31" Flyguy. I am using a 5x4E APC prop. This hits the arm plate, so will lower the motor platform a little. Will be almost ready to fly then.
