How V Tail setup and deflect?
If I were to look at the plane from behind, if I turn my rudder stick to the left, both v tail should swing to left, correct?
In another word if I were to put my plane on its fuse side, where one of the vtail touching the table and the other vtail is almost straight up, it will deflect as in a normal tail plane? Am I correct.
I believe some people say its the opposite of aileron movement if one were to look from behind.
Am I correct?
It does work ok, and is quite sensitive, but because the control surfaces are well out of the prop wash I have to be careful not to slow the Paddle down too much. The control movements are small - about 5mm each way to stop it being too twitchy. As it slows down the controls become less and less effective until there is none - then it does it's own thing! Sort of free-flight with motor control! Then I open up the throttle and as soon as the speed builds up I'm ok again.
