Really... to get right down to the un-arguable point. I tried them several ways, I liked that the best.

I like them as well .... although the only time I have flown without them is when I forgot to put them on... needless to say I was wondering why it felt so weird.

I think it has fantastic characteristics in the air; to me there is no debate, I love flying the MX-2 EXACTLY as designed.

I am using the Hacker a10-9l, cc9, s3114's throughout and would not think of changing the angle of the spades.

The only thing I am doing different on my next one is to go vpp with it.

...just my $0.02

Thanks guys, glad you're enjoying it!

I didn't mean to sound short at all about the spade question, I welcome questions! I just get that question a whole lot and I think I answered it on 3 different forums that day

The angle of the spades is simple, forget the theory and ask if they work if they do its the perfect angle. I find that its more about experimentation than theory every day

I would like to more about the wing spades. what can you tell me about the size, location, shape and angles you have tried? Also, have you experimented with the indents along the leading edge?
