Hobby Lobby Miss 2 Question

I just got a HL Miss 2. I am concerned with the elevator. It has a lot of up movement, but barely 3/8 inch of down movement. Appears that it was not fully deflected down while attaching it to the h-stab with the covering hinge. Is this normal for the Miss 2, or did I get a bad one.

Thanks.

Miss 2

I have a Miss Moravia, but exactly the same plane except low wing instead of high. It sounds just a bit tight, but after some examination on mine I don't use more than 3/8" deflection for flying. It is a very responsive plane to just a little bit of control. You could cut it loose and use hinges or tape it, but I would sure try it as is first. The material you have attached is much stronger than tape will ever be.

Yours should fly fine. Just keep adequate UP travel to flare those landings.

Miss 2

Hi All. Hey Wile E, what floats are you using on your Miss 2? I love float flying and that Miss 2 sure looks good up on floats. Thanks, Bob

Thanks for the replys. Guess as long as I don't get it tail heavy it will probably be ok. It may also loosen up with some use. I have plenty of up-elevator movement. It is just very tight on the down-elevator. Nice looking setup Wile E.

Ive had two Miss2s and both were a little tight. The first one I cut apart and used tape..worked fine, but after flying it ..(and later smashing it to bits), I left the second Miss2 alone you dont need that much throw, its very sentitive.....

Tim,

How do you like your Miss Moravia? I haven't built mine yet, wondered about needing to gear it.

Thanks,
Mark
