ive allready been working on that...

been getting her on the sim. lately.. this wing, dialed down, seems a good tool for a newby to pick up some basic orientation skills.

well, during lunch i added the mixes as suggested in the video to get the full throws, maxed them out with travel adjust ending up around 110% and its perfect, without hitting. flew her around for a minute or two in a ton of wind...

WOW.

its a different animal all together now.

with that mix switch and D/R i can get 3 positions now. which is nifty. what were nice tight loops are just ridiculous now and you can hover the thing for a second or two with a bit of wind blowing at you. rolls are much much faster as well.

thumbs will have to catch up. hahaa.

i did have what seemed like something catching inside the motor though. i worked it back and forth by hand and it quit catching. It will occasional stutter when throttle is applied as well? after you play with the wire connection it will stop... ?

check your solder joints from motor to ESC, sounds like the culprit

will do, thanks.



flew the larger prop yesterday for the first time.

seems a bit slower, smoother. shorter flight time. i like the sound though. haha.

rolls are much much faster. its just ton of fun.
the quickness with which it changes orientation and having to use only the right stick on the transmitter seems to be making me a better pilot with my CYL as well.. flew her yesterday and it just seemed so much smoother. I typically use the rudder alot on my planes... find my left thumb still trying to turn the wing. lol

On mine I mixed in ail differential to the rudder stick. That helps a little with giving some input to the left hand. After all these years flying 3D planes I can't just turn off the left hand.

Give it a shot!

So you're running no differential on the ail stick? yet on the rudder stick? Watching the rolls on some of the videos it looks like some differential might be a good thing, but why on one stick and not the other? Are you just trying to simulate yaw on the rudder stick?

Left rudder - left ail Up. Right rudder - right ail up.

Gives some yaw effect but also, and more important, gives the left hand something to play with.

I'll have to try it, not quite grasping what it accomplishes, seems backwards. On an elevon plane I'll run R master, A slave but always in the same direction.
L rudder - left aileron up etc.

i'll give that a try.. might help with trying to get some of those rolls going like in your vid., which is awesome by the way.

You guys are right, I wrote it backwards. Post edited. Sorry.

FWIW, on an elevon wing I often use the rudder stick as a "dual rate" for the ailerons by changing the mix values higher or lower depending on the plane.

Maidened my Crak Wing yesterday and I have to say it is VERY much fun to fly. I have 4 of the Nitroplanes POP's in various sizes and The Crak Wing is more fun to me than all of them.
This thing loops in a heartbeat, hovers and does reverse knife edges like some of my flat foamies. I am sure there are a lot more maneuvers yet to be learned by me. (Keep those videos coming!) Does anyone have a favorite maneuver with the CW they would like to share?
You won't be sorry you got one! (And the price is right!)

What's a reverse knife edge?
