Tuning fox?


I didn’t find in your user manual the différents values for channel rates, aileron differential, and other mixes.
What are your usual datas ?

Did you try to use ailerons as flaperons or airbrakes?

You can visit Windrider at www@windrider.com.hk and look for USA agent but IMHO best bet is to buy from Rocky at www.x-flight.hk for lower price, good postal costs and good service.

Aileron - as much movement as you can get - 50% diff

Rates - don't bother

Flapperons/brakes etc - waste of time - the model lands at walking pace and anyway, they won't have any effect

That's it

Is $65.00 plus $33.07 shipping = $98.07 considered a good price for this plane?

I suspect Windrider and x-flight work so closely together that they would probably ship from the same warehouse. I like to deal with the guy who designed and makes the plane (Ming, from Windrider).

That's about what I paid for mine - a saving of about $10 over Windrider. Doubt if you will find a much lower price.

Thanks for the information Ozzy! I can't find anyone in the states that carries it right now, so it looks like that is the way to go for now.

How long does it usually take to get one to Europe? I ordered mine two weeks ago. Haven't seen it yet.

That's odd, whop: I've bought a few things from Windrider, and postage from Hong Kong to Ireland is usually no more than a week.

Thanks, I know I will. Will take a little time, though, I am planning to smooth out the surface and tape it. And before that I have to finish another building project of my own.

I just finished mine, which I won last June at the Cape Blanco slope fest. 14 oz AUW with 4 HS 55's and a JR 610 UL receiver. No I won't let this ship get to far away. CG is at 1.75" I used a sharpy for the color. I don't expect this ship to last very long so I did not spend much time on the build. It took me about 5 hours to complete the build. I used a hot glue gun on most of the ship
