Getting Close...!!

I have not forgotten about you guys, just been busy... aaaahhh.... building an airplane... lol!

All up weight is right at 26oz or around 740g... this is with the 78g motor and a 1600 3s lipo. I will also test the 100g motor and 2200 3s.

Depending on how and where you locate your Rx you will need either 10 or 12" extensions (2x). This is based on the Power Combo Servos, they have longer leads than most so keep that in mind if you are use another brand.

Maiden and flight pics will be coming this afternoon!!!

The rest of the build thread will also get completed tonight and in the morning.

This has been great build.... all the details will follow of course with the posting of the build photos and Twisted Hobbys Manual.
.
ENJOY!!

The biggest change of course is that these tail feathers are hinged, as oppossed to being a beveled area in the EPP. Seems really nice. So with this said, it changes the hinge point a little, but still the Rudder is not a straight shot... I opted to put the slightest bend up by the servo horn, my thought was that this would be the most rigid. The way the links are hooked up, I am right at 100% throw on the radio, getting 50deg of elevator (up & down) and 45 on the rudder, ailerons are 40deg... with as big as the ailerons are in relationship to the wing I think it will be more than enough.

My Slick is actually heavier, but I have big servos in it... If I take the weight difference in servos and everything else being equal, ie flight battery etc than the ExtraVaganza if 15g (yep that's right 15 grams) heavier. There is also a difference in motors too, the Slick has 70g motor and the ExtraVaganza has the 78g motor, with all that said, the airframes are essentially the same weight.

Ready Set..... Go..!!!

The last thing I do on a new build is to balance a new prop and put it on. I just balanced a new prop and put it on!!
.
I mentioned in an earlier post - 10 or 12 inch servo extensions... definetly 12 inch and that will be tight... you will have about 1/16" left over, or for you metric types 1.57mm! If you want a little more flexibility in where you locate your Rx you might also want 2 short extensions for the ailerons, like 2 or 3 inch OR even better yet, Brad at Twisted Hobbys has some 16" extrensions... then you could bring the servo leads straight in from the wing to give a litte extra in that direction and the Rx would be located right around CG.
.
Pictures below of the control throws, again, nothing special here, all the box stock stuff and right at 100% on the Tx for all channels. Pretty sure there should be enough control surface travel here to satisfy even the most extreme pilots!
.
The look on the Pilot's face is even more funny now while looking at this set of pictures!!...

Looks sweet cdee, love the counterbalance. It will be interesting to see how it flies in contrast to all the other awesome foamy airframes you have in the hanger. Maybe a little comparo after awhile if you have time.
