Cool, thanks for the thread. Some good ideas there.

Built from Mike they're super lightly loaded and a brake not needed. They slow to a catchable crawl with decent head wind. Not sure how effective they'd be also as the canopy profile is pretty round and narrow.

I've used TTTGU on quite a few twisty planes. I find it slows them down with no pitch change. Most of my TWF planes are T tails no V-tails at this time)
While it won't slow the plane down like full flaps and crow, it does settle into a slow, stable draggy descent. I won't build a TWF without one.
I've tried the waggle lua script to slow down, and I didn't care for it. TTTGU for me.

What was the situation where it ended badly?

They are worth installing just to see the faces of your fellow pilots when you flip the switch to open the canopy. Using them in flight is optional.

Funny the TTTGU for Jester came up just now.

We recently developed a Jester TTTGU UberDrive for a customer who needed one.

The image on the right (below , if you are using your mobile) is the standard Jester UberDrive for KST X10 servos which now gets a full 3/8" arm on the servo.

..........

My personal Jester will get its own popping canopy when I finally receive the Shrike-sized TTTGU from You-Know-Who !!!

I plan to install a TTTGU UberDrive in my Jester! Actual WinchDoc said he'd give me a hand on the install. Looking forward to getting mine in the air this Fall.

Make sure you factor in "pilot (in)competence" in what you've seen, until you've flown a TWF with a TTTGU yourself.

Below is my Chaos on final in Australia.
It has a conventional tail and flies like a champ with the canopy raised.

Jester number 22 is good to go! Time for a maiden. Check out Matin's UberDrive with the KST X10s. Everything works first try! Just need to poke some holes for the antennae whiskers. Mike, you made this one sweet and bad-ass all in one! See you at JesterFest --- if not sooner.

I keep repeating myself...they just keep getting better. An UberDriven Jester w/TTTGU; what's next?!

Matin,
That photo of the CHAOS is great.

Matin..............looks like the wings servos are KST X10-710's.
Is that the same servo used for the TTTGU too?

Was considering whether to use a Hitec hs65hb or a hs85mg servo for my TTTGU.
*noted the long servo arm to reduce throw & speed

I took a 5 cell nickel metal hydride battery and reshaped it to fit far enough up the nose. Ended up being balanced without need for extra lead!

# 25 has flown


Saw the prototype at PSS Fest and immediately had to have a plane with the prettiest carbon wings I have ever seen. Didn't need it, just wanted it.

Built with 16500 LiFe pack (2000 MaHr), MKS HV69 servos. Rated for 128 oz-inches of servo torque, as too much torque is just right. Came out at 33 1/2 oz., including 3 oz. of nose weight to balance. The LiFe pack is long and skinny so not so much help in balancing the plane as a 5 cell NiMh pack would be.

Minimal flurescent orange markings, as I do not see why anyone would cover the beauty with plastic film or paint. That orange really shows up well , against a blue sky in particular.

When I get the CG and throws dialed in, I expect it will be a lot of fun to fly.
