Mini Magnum maiden today


Hi, it was the first flight of my mini Magnum with the westonUK west36V1 today. Was a bit scary but did go super fast. I'm quite happy it has flown at last.

Hi All, well the mini Magnum R is ready for another flight tomorrow and I'm hoping all goes well again. I have stiffened up the ailerons as I think they were twisting during high speed flight. Seemed a bit dead around centre and when applied rolled about 45degree at a time. Anywhere slower than full throttle they worked absolutely perfect. Elevator was no problem. I sunk in 3mm carbon rods into the ailerons and glued them in with epoxy. I've also closed the hinge gap with stiff plastic hinge seal only double sided tape on the wing side. ( See pics) Use this method on fast gliders as well.

Enjoy your weekend.

Fly safe.

Charlie
