Always keeping an eye on whats new Nigel

No need for an upgrade yet, maybe once you guys figure out how to beat me in a thermal contest..........[gauntlet]

Sorry for the hijack DP, and now back to your regularly scheduled drooling over a new moldy....

Hey Les,

<<No need for an upgrade yet, maybe once you guys figure out how to beat me in a thermal contest..........[gauntlet]>>

Hmmm....

<<Sorry for the hijack DP, and now back to your regularly scheduled drooling over a new moldy.>>

No worries.

Now that the model has flown, let me know what you guys want to know. Or pics you'd like to see. I plan on getting into the design philosophy a bit. I know many people will question the benefits of the 6 servo wing. I'll share the thought process, and my past experience of why it came to pass on the Vixen.

I'm more than happy to go into my sense of the flight performance, but I'm really more interested in hearing what you guys think once we get a few of them out there.

DP

I would like to see a video of the trailing edge mixing.

Especially the inboard ailerons.

Ok, so after I asked about uploading images directly from my iPhone, a nice gentleman steered me to an app that totally works. I'm using it now. It does everything I asked about.

What it doesn't do... Is let me upload video. So... You guys will have to wait for a trailing edge video.

Tapatalk. Go to the App Store and search for it. It's about 3 bucks. Worth it for me. I'm always working from my phone.

She's a beauty DP, happy testing!
Very nice finish and a design that is easy on the eye... usually a good sign...
Nice to see a V-tail again as well.

Daryl, what is the root cord & flap width at the root? Is that a special eight pin wing connector? Could you please explain on wiring 3 servos to the connector...

That is a standard 6 pin multiplex connector. It is good for driving 4 servos. One positive and negative lead, common across all 4 servos, and 4 individual servo wires. Or it is often used for just 2 servos, with all three wires for each servo independent. It is a very standard connector for RC sailplanes.
