Hi Adam

Plane's coming good. Hopefully ready for our indoor flying on Sunday. What do you use for throws?

Awesome, Pete! I just maxed out the throws, as much rudder and elevator as the geometry will allow. For aileron I recommend 15-25% differential (more up than down) to start with.

Right now the windshield and side windows are open. Leave that way or fill in with clear film?

You can leave it that way if you want. I've flown it both ways, and slightly prefer it with a windshield.

Well she's almost ready to fly. I was scanning the thread and realized I haven't put the exhaust stacks on yet. Two seconds after I send this.

She weighs 36.5 grams with a 150 lipo, Polecat motor, gearbox and brick, two short throw aileron servos and Champ landing gear including the plastic mount. No windshield or windows. RA microfilm red and 2 micron metalized mylar.

Mine flys great with a little right thrust and no down. A couple of clicks of down elevator and off she went. Loops, rolls, snaps, inverted, etc. I think I may be a bit nose heavy because I needed quite a bit of down when inverted. More tests tomorrow.

Great design Adam!
