I mix in 20% down elevator when the spoilerons are fully up.

That's it.
If I click on the link, it just PLAYS; doesn't offer me a choice of M Video.... maybe I'm not doing something ELSE, right???

It offers you the choice of play in external player. Select that then save as.

I have a question for all the TS2 owners who have started flying their planes. Have you felt the need to re-enforce the wings or tail with 3M Extreme tape or carbon fiber tape? Do you see a lot of flexing in flight?

I did that with the wings of my Easy Star, but the TS2 seems so much stronger. But then I got to thinking that my plane might fly a bit faster than the Easy Star. Any thoughts on this?

I would be a little careful about painting the TS2 in dark colours, particularly if you're in a hot climate. Dark blue etc. will absorb sunlight and cause the foam to get significantly hotter than the standard white finish (that's why composite gliders and light aircraft are almost always white with a small amount of colour trim). You can deform Elapor pretty easily when warm, and it will "set" that way when cool!

i haven't seen any flexing in my wing, when i'm paying attention, but i taped up my wing prior to the first flight. i still can't get my head around the fact that this is as tough as it is and am afraid to break something. especially if it's a break that occurs during a dive! the only damage, so far, has been from messed up launches or slightly rough landings.

Thanks, lowdive. I might glue a narrow strip of CF to the wing bottom.

Maidened - FINALLY!

Finally got to maiden the "Flouro Fella"'s TwinStar II!

Fantastic!

Three of us flew it for around fairly gently 20 minutes on one 2600 3S LiPo, only using 1/4 to 1/2 throttle most of the time, even gliding for quite a bit of it!
Everyone loved it - I think there might be a couple of converts here! The Flouro Orange looked fantastic against the sky and made it easy to orient the plane.
Climbs were fast - even vertical at times. Only trimming needed was to mix in 5% down elevator to stop it going vertical under WOT!
Loops, rolls - even vertical ones - and inverted were all easy to do and very stable. The twin HiMark 2808-1360 outrunners and Graupner 7x6 Speed Props worked beautifully together and most of the time was spent at 1/2 throttle or less. The glide was amazing - two of the pilots usually fly gliders and they were very impressed.
I'm editing some video to put on the www.numbthumbsandloopy.net web site soon. I should have it up by tomorrow - our time.

GREAT PLANE!!!

Cheers

The videos are done, both this and the TwinJet, but my site seems to be down so I can't upload it! The hassle of not hosting your own site!!!

I'll try again in the morning.

Cheers

PS This is a GREAT plane to fly! The twin outrunners and 7x6 props worked brilliantly!

Congrats! Looks good in the air there David. tt

Maybe a wiring diagram of the two brushless and their ESCs would help some here that want to copy your performance? Just a suggestion.

Methinks you're just trying to get me all excited with anticipation!
OK ... I moved the TS2 up from #4 (my build list) to #2.
OK?

Not that my vote really counts ... but I'll second that wiring diagram.

Your every wish is my command....

Here is a rough diagram of the wiring. There are several ways of doing it, I just chose the line of least resistance!

The plane flys beautifully on the motor/prop combination I am using. I didn't even bother trying any of the other props I had with me to try - about 6 pairs...

A gentle hand toss was all that was needed to launch and it flew vertical at WOT - a problem solved by mixing in 5% down elevator at WOT. You just can't beat 1:1 thrust:weight!

Next flight I will put the data logger in to see what the amps/volts/watts come out at.

Cheers
