Doug, your wing looks awesome. Are you sure the springs will be enough to keep the spoilers down in flight? There will be underpressure on that spot. Certainly at higher speeds and pulling the elevator I could see the spoilers coming up by themselves.

That is AWESOME!

For loosing weight, try removing all the windows like Sergey did; it is a ton more work but looks great and has weight saving benefits!


Sergey, where are you flying this weekend? Are you going to join us at St Mtn tomorrow?

Thanks Fotor. Funny, I thought about the same low pressure area- especially at high speed. However, the springs are absurdly strong - almost mousetrap like. (I'll eventually put a small video on the forum showing spoiler and flap movement which will demostrate it.)

At this point, I'm actually more worried about them wearing out my servos as the servo arm needs to overpower the spring to deploy the spoliers. I might need to move to metal geared servos eventually.

Question to those of you working on this model. I am about to start with the fuselage and see that everyone has the front wheel sticking out a few mm when retracted. Has anyone tried to change to smaller wheels or carve some foam away so that the retracts will sit a bit deeper inside the fuse?

Great video and very scale flying! You were brave taking off left to right. There was a windsock showing 45 degrees tailwind. However flight, take off and landing was very scale and precise.
