Hi Wobby, are these numbers for aileron throws as well. Just wondering because it would seam opposite to aileron differential i.e. more up less down instead of less up more down.
Thanks Wobby

Good luck with the maiden flight.

Babs maidened his last weekend, and it went very well.
I did notice however, that his pushrods had a LOT of flex in them, and i recomended he put some cf tube over them.
I really doubt that the jet will pull out of a dive with his stock pushrods.
When i got home, i checked mine, also stock, but mine are very stiff with no flex, so i dont know if more recent kits have software pushrods, maybe check yours just in case.
Hold full up elevator, then push the elevator down my hand, see how much flex there is?

I cant tell from your photo, looks like you have both holes (front retract and air inlet underneath clossed) ?

cheers
