OK, I stated in the last video that I thought all my MODs & Adjustments on this Eachine Mini F4U Corsair were complete.
OK, I was wrong ;-)
I just couldn't leave the lethargic Roll Rate as it was.
I started thinking about several ways I could MOD the Linkages, Servo Arm, or Control Surfaces to improve the Roll Rate.
I decided to go with Extensions on the Aileron Control Surfaces.
This is a Show & Tell Tutorial on how I added the Aileron Extensions.
We will also perform the Test Flights to confirm this MOD gives us the Roll Rate we deserve ;-)

These Plans & Docs are the Glue & Fly™ Series F-22 Micro V2 Rev1!
I got these out much later than planned but better late than never ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Intermediate to Advanced.
Intermediate setup is a 2S Power System with 10 points more Dual-Rate than on a 3S Setup.
Advanced setup is a 3S Power System.
It's very docile on a 2S Power System, Fast & Aerobatic with a 3S Power System.

This Flight is a DustOff Flight but also a bit of a Demonstration Flight.
I want to demonstrate the Stability, Power, Agility, and the Wide Flight Envelope of this Micro Parkjet.
The GFS F-22 Micro V2 is the best flying Micro Plane I have Factory or otherwise ;-)
