Thanks for the help !!

I will go with the Aurora 9 .. have read some great reviews on the Aurora 9 in Radio Forums.

Also, thanks for the scoop on the LiPo's .. have had terriffic luck with Max Amps, so I will get their 3S 2250 MaH packs .. the bummer is .. they are out 3 weeks on those !!!

Thanks again guys .. ordering an Aurora 9 / Rx / no servos ( have zillions of those ) and Beaver # 2 ( Pre / Backorder ) right now .. will save $45.00 and free freight .. not too shabby ?!?

Looks good, thats what I was doing before I got my Thermal printer.
I was sticking them on a white sticker first then once applied I would apply a clear coat or a clear sticker on top of it.

What kind of thermal printer do you use. I had an Alps printer for years, loved it for making decals, especially since it could print white.
They are hard to find in the U S now.

The one I have is a brother QL-700 and it prints on clear label film but not in color. the quality is very good like a picture in black and white
Just that the film is very expensive .

A couple of questions to the beaver flyers:

Do you'all have to "hold the turn in" ?
and Do you have to "unturn" it even on a shallow bank?

I find that my beaver requires a LOT of stick action and I don't think it should be that much work to fly it. It is "hard" to fly. Even harder than all of my higher skill level planes.

Still working on it. Diagnosing it somewhat fun. I learn best this way.
A very nice flight today with better visibility and very little breeze. It was like night and day difference. I still had my mix programmed , but at least it was flyable with the mix turned OFF. It flies about as good as I remember it with the wheels on.

Nice thing is that I didn't have to hold the turn in at all AND didn't have to unturn it if I didn't want to.

I did figure out a bit of my problem to be a rudder that doesn't center at exactly the same spot every time AND a little slop in the rudder itself. I will possibly have to bend that metal tang next time I have the rudder off so that it engages further and has zero slop.

Nice job, nice video. Pretty easy to see that yours doesn't pitch up at all in the turns. I think mine is the only one that and after some more checking I decided to move the balance point forward to 2" instead of 2-3/16". I also found that the right wing was a bit light and now made the right wing just a tick heavy. Hopefully these two changes will allow me to remove another 50 clicks of aileron trim and will lessen the nose pitching up when rolling.

Today's flight was so nice I wished I'd had time to do more. Don't tell anyone , but I now have 3sx4.4 for extra long flights. I do recall one plane acting like mine does and was of (maybe a futaba or Hobbico) pilot flying from a water pool inside a building. His plane pitched up a LOT in the turns , I figured it was done on purpose.

Found it at the 2 minute mark , this is the way mine looks when turning. Is this pilot applying right rudder to make it do that? For me and my skills it spells disaster. My band aid is to apply left rudder , of course it takes lots of elevator too. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=1034
