Just like that but the portion with the tab popped loose. I reglued and put tri stock on both sides. Now it's solid.

Just came from the field. Jack let me take the Mythos for a spin. What an amazing flying plane. He should have some video coming up soon. I'm ordering one today.

Here's some video from today, there is some great flying in this one! Pablo really loved flying the MythoS, he added about 15% down elevator-to-rudder mix to compensate for the tendency of the plane to pull toward the canopy, really seemed to track better after that. He also couldn't believe this plane was flying on 6S, it really is a great flying plane with tons of power, will be taking it to E-Week next week!

15% sounds like a lot perhaps (not to me but...) but you see very little unless at full deflection. If you watch the video, Pablo is flying knife edge circles around the field at perhaps 15% - 18% max rudder deflection, it ends up being very little as the plane has a lot of rudder authority...

I'm not sure it matters the exact number, it's a hint for anyone wanting to trim it out well, it does the trick either way...

Trimming an airplane with as little mixes as possible between control surfaces is probably a good goal. Trimming Your Mythos to fly as good as possible has just began and the 15% down elevator-to-rudder mix to compensate for the tendency of the plane to pull toward the canopy is probably a thing that can be revised as times goes and You maybe change CG and other things. I would have prefered that Mythos 125E did not have the wing roots recessed into fuselage that prevent to easy install of wing adjusters but it is as it is.
Have You read about Triangulation Trimming By Bryan Hebert?
Anyway so far Mythos 125E seems to fly fine but who will be the first to fly P13 schedule and see how good it fly that? Is it something You can do Jack or Your friend that flew Your plane?

I bought one from:

www.modelflight.com.au

They don't seem to have them on the website, but give them a call they had quite a few in stock.

Righto, I'll have to make some calls. Was it the 6xs or the 5xs?

The 5XS is what the box calls for, that's what's in mine ;-) All the video in this thread is of mine flying the stock motor (A60-5XS V2)...
