Hey well mine is the best. She wanted to hang a 64" Waco in the family room. I told her I intended to fly it this weekend and she was upset that I might destroy it - haha.

Hey Tas - get my plane off your Avatar ! Hahaha ! Mine mine mine. Kidding of course.

CK - how much throw should I dial in for both high and low rates ? I imagine it's going to be tiny throws, but I do like to do fast rolls.

Also CG - where it be ?

Much thanks - I'm looking forward to flying this wing for a very long time.

Paul - very nice job on the web site ! I know how much work it is.

Vinnie

I have it pretty good, my wife thinks I should own every plane I've ever thought looked cool.
However, I don't think she would let me hang any of them in the family room . I think that has to be the winner.

40 should be around 7.5"

50 should be around 8"

Throws start off at 3/8-1/2 up and down, and tweak it from there.
I run a futaba 7c and have the elevator at 50 percent low 60 high and the ailerons are 65 low 75 high.

Very cool servo trays - do they add much weight ?

I don't think it will matter at all. Most of the time, unless you use large size mAh batteries.
You still need a little weight in the nose.
I used a couple of 3850 mah 2s and still needed a little weight.
So go with 4000 or above and use less dead weight while flying longer

BTW John Wing nice tray you made there, looks good....

Mr Postman delivered Tas's creation today. What a gorgeous plane ! Now to figure out the batteries and motor. Should be fun.
