IMO the RVOSD stock settings work quite well for most planes. That is if you follow the guide correctly and that you have a well dialed in airframe before you start installation.

okay had to add a couple of weights in with battery but got her setup with 4" cog. now if the weather will just cooperate

The first video is totally cool. Thanks. For me (only), the PIP in the 2nd one sort of subtracted from your usual excellent videos. Just my opinion... Keep 'em comin' and I will keep a watchin'.

There's no such thing as an overpowered airplane.

Only overweight, or out of balance, or incorrectly set up so it's hard to handle.

You are correct. The SSS does not have any mod to hold the wings in place. Your choices are rubber bands, velcro, magnets, or ???.

I think he was asking if it's possible to unplug the wings, or if they have to be left in place 24/7/365, spanning 8 feet even when you want to put it in your car.

Yes, they are designed to be unplugged, to make the plane easier to transport, store, etc.

Some folks think they they are a little too easy to unplug, and are worried that they might unplug themselves during flight. So several people have come up with ways of hooking them in place, so they won't detach until it's time to pack the plane up.

Here's one such scheme: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...9#post23173810

i put two nylon bolts down through fuse and glued nylon nuts in the wing for them to screw into,one for each wing in the widest part of wing. Then i cut a slot in fuse right under wings on each side for my servo connectors and put aileron plug and flap plug above it and glued them in place. So now two bolts and plug in servos and we are ready to fly
