Well, Wed came and went and no flight, been dealing with house stuff, air conditioning problems etc. Finished her up this afternoon. Of course, the weather is miserable and the maiden will have to wait until tomorrow.

Should be interesting. The picture of the bottom shows how the front surfaces are mixed to the tail. Crossing the control rods makes the right canard go down when the left elevator goes up and vice versa for the left canard. Because it's elevons and the opposite sides drive the canards, both move opposite the elevators for pitch. I've dialed in 50% expo for the first flights.

I've made a few mods to the mini jar. This one is 11.5" wide by 14" long. I've also added some coupled surfaces in front and thanks to Bob Braun managed to come up with a linkage scheme that won't require any additional servos or mixing.

The elevators (canards?) in front will move with the elevons in roll and go opposite the elevons in pitch. The rudder will move opposite the rear rudder.

I expect to have it in the air by Wed 10 Jun.
