The wing had just a slight misalignment and a few rubber bands entered the aileron cavity area and it was super easy to bring back to flight status without taking off the rudder bands nor the wing assembly

Fortunately, this incident did not happened when I had the Video Camcorder onboard!

Oh, yes....here's the Video footage of this very large open field South of the Orlando International Airport and it's called the BOOGY CREEK Field.

I can assure you that we do not use any tar in the construction of the Slow Stick X.

TAR......

Of course I used "Tar" figuratively but, there is a known process such that Tar can be produced from corn stalks by heating in a microwave. This process is known as pyrolysis.

It is off from SR-417 (GreenBelt Expressway) and need to exit at Boggy Creek exit. Once you get off you need to turn in such a manner to head North like you are going into the Airport from the South. However, instead you take your very first LEFT after the exit from SR-417.

Once you turn LEFT you will pass over the South Bound Lanes of Boggy Creek and you will continue WEST and the road will twist slightly towards your Left then it will striaghten out and this very large field will be on your Right (North side).

I wanted to get involved in this thread. I picked up the kit at Hodges a couple of weeks ago to keep me busy during the days. What a fun plane to build. I was jealous of Richard and Jeff (don't tell them I said that), but now I have my own.

My LEDs just arrived, so all I have left to do is solder the LEDs up, cover the wing, then install the electronics, and she is ready to go. I think I will be picking up a Micro SSX kit when I finish this one up.

Setup:
Scorpion 2215-22
Scorpion 25A esc
AR6100
3 HS-55 servos

Thanks!

I would recommend using 2 HS-55 servos for the ailerons if you must use them. Some of the extreme flight guys are stripping the gears on the HS-55.

Ahhh, good to know. I was going to use HS-55's, maybe HS-65 HB would be better?

You could use 1 HS-65 for the ailerons or 2 if you want flaparons.

Yes, forgot about the HS-45 carbonite. Make sure you do not use thread lock on the carbonite. It will eat it.

Thanks dood. I think my cool points drastically increased with the SSX. I have half of the LEDs done. Now I need to solder 10 more together, then cover the wing.
