Use the same flap switch as your on/off mix switch. In this way you can have from stall speed to full speed an absolutely neutral. If you using 3 position flap and you want absolute perfection in full and middle position flap, then you need 2 mixing for throttle to pitch. Again use the flap switch to control the two mixing.
See you.

Quique,

Thanks for the advice and thanks for designing the plane. It is a thing of beauty.

Quick question. What's next in your career?

That is the very field (Carl Henson) I maidened my CZC at last Friday afternoon. The Real Flight developer is located in Corvallis, Oregon, about 25 miles north. They added my clubs field to their program in the last upgrade.

Pictures of the paint containers as requested. Not sure why you don't want to take your windscreen hatch into your own Lowes. You don't have to take a big ole wing in the store.

I'll second the WOW. I think that's pretty special. Not very often do you get the man to stop by and give out free advice.

Thanks QQ,

Right on, thanks.

I actually took the canopy/hatch in but it was determined that the amount of surface area required for perfect match is larger than the amount of blue on my canopy. They essentially need an area about the size of a quarter. To get that much, the next smallest component is the wing or fuse.

How close is your match (blue)?

Cheers

Glad to see I'm not the only one with ca issues, thought the ca was bad. After using from a second bottle with no luck I pulled the rudder to try and dry it up, by the time I was done I ca everywhere, unfortunately I missed I run that ran right down the top of the plane.

I did my maiden today in 10 to 15 mph winds along with another three flights. With full flaps the landing speed was so slow you could have walked over and grabbed the plane out of the air .

I do have some questions about what I should expect from the as3x. I have the HK 3 channel gyro in a 1/5 scale H 9 cub and it is excellent. With the as3x I noticed pretty steady flight at higher speed for the wind I was flying in, but the wind had no problem sending the plane in what ever direction it felt at less then 3/4 throttle and the landings were definitely all me at slower speeds. It was nothing to have the wings pitch over to a good 45 degree angle on approaches with me correcting with both rudder and aileron.

Tomorrow I will try learning the programming to verify I'm at 80 on the gain, when checking movement on the ground I'm lucky if I can get more then a Millimeter or two total movement from any surface. At slower speeds I would think you would need a fair amount of movement, especially if it's going to help level out those really slow landings.

I'll probably have to pick up some blue touch up paint also, having wore quite a bit off the wing tips while dragging them along the ground. loved being able to do the one wheel touch and goes.

The blue is pretty darn good. It takes a couple of coats if you are right down to white foam. But when you get the coverage it's very very close. The Gray is almost perfect. I have a real hard time telling where I painted around the battery hatch.

OK, my Cub is all reassembled. I have to let the paint dry and give it another coat on the leading edge of the wing where "stall strip? was. It seems I might need to also sand it just a little. There seems to be just a little foam fuzz and the latex paint made it stand up, I think because I used a foam roller. Oh well.

Everything else is done. I soldered a EC5 Device connector on the ESC and rerouted the power lead for the Rx. I'm now using a Align battery strap to hold down the battery. The Scorpion was just a little long and kinda stiff.

Now if he weather will cooperate tomorrow, I might even get to fly.

Good luck and have a great maiden flight! Take pictures and video.

QQ: Please continue and bring more and better fliers into China


I got to know QQ quit HH a few days after my maiden flight of Carbon-Z CUB. For this reason, I fly it very carefully now. My UMX Beast 3D and Visionarie have been disarmed with batteries since then and there is no plan to fly them in near future. I restarted my assembly of Pitts12 15E after that news but again before full readiness I stopped. The trigger of making them back in air is the date of next news - QQ joins another company of model airplane or he starts his own!

Where did you hear this? That's heartbreaking, I need to buy up my favorite designs of his now.
