What do you think is better for the rudder, the pull-pull system or servo at the back with hard linkage?

Pull-pull is moot now IMO. With today's ultra-strong servos nullifying the need to gang servos to have enough power, added to the fact this plane is electric with the ability to shift the flight pack for proper CG, for me direct linkage is the only logical option...

What about aerodynamic considerations? The pull-pull system has much less exposure on the fuselage, where the external servo would protrude on the one side.

I went pull-pull cos I hate seeing servos stick out of aeroplanes.

But that's just me.

Yeah, however it also seems that the 6XS and 19x12 is also advertised.

I like the idea of a big paddle turning slightly slower to give that uphill grunt.

I would bet $1,000 if you put the plane in a wind tunnel and measured the aerodynamic effect of both configurations, that they would be within 1% of each other for drag, if that much!

Yep. However while we're on the subject, Jack; where does your battery end up to balance?

Agreed. The air back there is so roiled from backwash I bet you couldn't even measure it.

I do pull-pull just for appearance.

15% discount - wow, that must be really tempting for You in N. America to get a Sebart plane now.
Miss Wind is one of the best looking biplanes out there in my opinion, and it flies very well also according to all reviews etc I have read about it. There is a 21 page assembly thread at http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_8633615/tm.htm

As a side note on Miss Wind - there will be (according to post #492 in above thread) a 2 meter Miss Wind named Miss Italia that will be out in end 2012. That should be a nice thing to try.

Are we talking about this web site? http://thunderpowerrc.com/ I don't see a link with a price to a Mythos 125E or a Miss Wind. Can you put in a direct link to either plane?
