Also, any bipes in the works? One that takes the new 4016t mkII motor.

Although transporting a bipe is a pain...

where did you hear that?

sells the outlaw....a bipe shouldn't be a big deal.

I would like to see one based off of Skip Stewart's scheme, but black ultracote is a pain in my neck of the woods at least.

It suffered minor damage when i got blown into a tree on a slow final on a windy day, and I have never gotten around to rebuilding it. I'd toss it if EF had a similarly sized bipe, though.

Think outside the box. The Vyper Bype from 3DHS looks great and utilities HS-85 servos.

I posted this on the Laser thread, but i think anyone flying a 48" EXP might find this interesting.

The most obvious change is the roll rate slows down. This is ok because I don't go around with the stick pegged over anyway, and it is still so fast that I can't keep up with it at full deflection for more than two or three rotations. Also, the timing changes on snap manuevers and pop tops become very lazy.

The improvement is in high speed stability. the tips seem to really lock the plane in and precision work is greatly improved. Slow and point rolls become much more solid and precise, especially now that I am getting used to using my low rate. KE flight seem unaffected and it seems that harrier and elevator maneuvers may be a little better, but it's not enough that it jumps out at you. Some of it may also be psychological too, which is why I am going to make this an extended test and leave them on my blue Extra for awhile.

KE spin changes a little. It will throw the tail over the nose about the same as before, but you have to be a little more careful on entry, and it doesn't just drop in effortlessly like it does without the tips.

I forced my self to run the tips,because I love the way they look, and now I get it! There great, and do help to slow your rollers a hair. Something about the black bottom that helps me also! I'm controlling the direction of my Rolling harriers better with this MXS, because I see the bottom, and know when to Pop the down elevator a hair harder, even doing Riffle rollers.

I try to learn new things between videos. I find this keeps people interested. I haven't made one in a few month, and I'm looking forward to filming a 64" MXS video with my new Iphone5.. The camera, and processor are amazing!

It's possible I remember wrong. . . but I didn't have any mixes programmed, that's for sure, and I've flown monoplanes that don't KE as well as the pitts...(E.g., the T-28 lol).

Don't get me wrong, I do not recommend the Pitts...other issues and design flaws, e.g., battery hatch not available for purchase individually, aileron to aileron wood control horns too weak, etc.

I have an iPhone coming in a few weeks, had to order it. I hope the vid quality is good! I have a Sony Bloggie that takes good 12mp pictures but the vid is only so so.

Lwrc, what was the shipping cost on the 60" planes to man for you?
