Would like to fly a Green Laser but wind is gusting to 40+ so probably isn't going to happen today.

I have to change the aileron servo in my Crack Pitts. It finally gave out. Any tips on getting out the bad servo and replacing it with a new one?

Well, just like the guy said in the build video, use very little glue on the servos.
So hopefully you followed that and can just use a knife to cut it out.
The good thing about the way the servos are mounted in this plane is there is no backwall that it was glued to so a knife can cut all around it.
On other plane builds I have had to just try and work the servo out because it was glued to a back wall and I wound up pulling a chuck of foam out

Yeah like SC said pretty much have to cut it out carefully. Not that bad had to do the same on mine. Or you could use acetone to loosen the welders enough to get it out.

Thanks to Dan 5.0 for the tip. Here's how I've been doing on my latest builds. Just put a bead of welders/foam tac around the servo and in the servo cutout, let it dry fully, now there isn't a need to glue them in. The bead keeps them in place and makes it easier to pop them out if needed.

I tried some knife edge with my glider, nothing the 3D foamies, but didnt look too bad, the models tend to dive as they arent generating any lift at all!

Had a successful maiden of the ssep 357 yesterday. It feels a lot different than the tricopter but still loads of fun. In flight it feels more "planted" while the tri feels more "swooshie". For example if I want to make a sharp turn the tri will drift around the corner making it feel like it's sliding. The quad REALLY grips the air around the corner with a far less slippery feel.
Hoping to go out and try some fpv with it today. Name: uploadfromtaptalk1395769263888.jpg

Got the servo out. Not as hard as I thought. I put in a 12gram metal gear (Power HD). Now gotta find some scrap epp.

Unfortunately, I missed out on my first indoor session with the CYM and CPM, i was just having too much fun on the slope, by the time i left at 6.30pm, i had no time to charge up, pack up and get to the hall for 6.00pm, maybe next week.

Jimbo I know you hit the slopes quite a bit. But I was wondering if there is a glider that will do fine in just wind? No slopes here but plenty of wind. Any suggestions?
