Question for the guys already flying. On the set up for the first flights is there any "reflex" needed. On other wings I fly it recommends some up trim for the elevator.

Yes.... with that said... set up every thing neutral and level on the bench before your maiden.. then when you get out to the park or field dial in 4 or 5 click of up elevator... than adjust from there as needed for level flight... I have found that if you use the recommended CG point it will stay level at all throttle settings. While inverted you will have to push, but it is completely predictable. It does not seem to need the "noticable" amount reflex that a Zagi or other similar wing requires.

I'm always amazed by your talent, Chris. Great video. Could you share your setup? Did you use Twisted's "Power Combo" or other gear? Thanks

Thanks Murman! Everything there is stock Twisted Hobbys combo and running 7x3.5 prop.

It's a great little performer on the stock package.

The 250mAh 2s battery from Twisted Hobbies is 17g. So is the one you linked to. I would say it will work just fine. I've got 4 NanoTech 350mAh 2s packs that weigh 20g I will be using on mine. I doubt 3g will make a huge difference in performance.

maidened mine over the weekend. What a blast to fly this thing. didnt touch my other planes the whole time. Flys slow, flys fast. it was the only thing i flew. gotta get more batteries. speaking of which, my flight times with the smaller prop and the 250 TH lipo were just GREAT. 5 minutes easy. 4 if your zooming around the entire time.. but honestly, i love just gliding down to the ground and blasting out of it inches of the dirt.


my roll rates, however, with the dx6i are not up to par with the vids you guys are posting...? i read the thread regarding the transmitters issue with full travel. they resolve the issue by using the ail and the aux1 channel on the reviever, BUT my issue is i have a micro receiver im using that has no Aux. ports... ?

any suggestions?

The Roll rates in the Video I posted are not quite as high as the one from Herc. You can enlarge the cutout slightly to get more of one or the other control, but as mentioned in the Manual and Build Post when checking for bind you need to move the sticks to the corners of the Radio's Gimble for full servo movement.

Glad you all are starting to get the Maidens done on your Wings... and enjoying them... they are very addicting, easy and FUN.
