Just a sneak peek at the precision cut cnc cores. I'm not sure who cut these Bret, but they are primo. I think they're going to make great plugs! I gotta be honest, I don't know edf from fpv but I think I might want one of these sexy little things!

Thanks pdawg.

CN: Likewise - I thought I best do a final check tonight - not tomorrow. That paid off big time. The paint had filled the gap of the elevators near the rudder and they were catching when going up and down. This meant it wouldn't return to neutral after going up. Some 600 grit passed through it several times fixed that up. That's when I noticed my response to input on the elevator seemed sloppy. I pulled off the tail and found that the linkages had way too much play in them so made a few nylon washers out of control horn arms and clipped them into the space of the pushrod right angle area that was causing the play. A good dab of CA and retest and she's tight as a drum now. I also had to crimp the aluminium tubes tighter onto the control links as there was slop in them too. Final testing showed I had turned down the rates too far and did not have enough throw on the elevator so corrected that. Ailerons are fine. Power up was fine.

I made the joke to Ozzi Supercub tonight that if this thing doesn't fly, I at least intend to set a new distance record for the javelin throw!!!

jfinch: very nice! So smooth and accurate.

Ody: Saddle up early, we got some flying to do.

Eagerly awaiting your flight report!

Are you going to trim in a couple clicks of up-elevator and a click or two of right-aileron for the maiden?

How did you go Nitro?
Jan 07, 2011, 07:34 PM
I don't want to land yet!
Launch was great... seemed to have enough power but a little too heavy in the nose we think!
Anyway, I'll let Nitro tell the story in more detail...

CN, if you could tell me your exact CG that would be great.

I found some useable photos of the wing Nitro, so when I get back home I'll whip up the diagram. You are using the same wing as Pdawg, yeah?
