Test Flight - King Kong / LDARC Tiny Wing 450X - No Gyro, New Receiver & ESC - Oh Yeah!

I prefer to fly my Planes in Manual Mode even if they have a Gyro.
I never seemed to quite get the Roll Rate or the Tight Loops I wanted on this Wing.
Was the Gyro Limiting the Wing even in Manual Mode?
I honestly don't know, but we're going to find out ;-)

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 ;-)

I have updated the Plans & Docs for the Glue & Fly™ Series F-22 Micro V2!
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.
