That awful adverse yaw can be your friend if you are doing knife edge, which is a crowdpleaser. So I would prefer to have symmetrical aileron action. Makes it more predictable when flying inverted and banking the plane.

When I built a J3 Cub, I hated the fact that I had to use rudder to get it to turn properly, but when I learned (with my Kadet Sr.) that it made knife edge easier, I ended up liking it!

You all right with delaying the return of the RC cars by a week?

Good, I will use tomorrow as a building day then. It will be for my friend's patented welding accessory though! Just got all the parts in for the prototype.

I had to quit counting long ago.
Is it "work" if you're doing it for free?

You sure were right about this not being a flying day! I can't even paint window trim, the wood is too soggy.

yup, I look out once in a while thinking I might squeeze in a flight, but the trees are blowing, temps still below 60 and humidity hovering around misty. Gotta go and box some foam, though. duty calls!

I wanted to buy a box next time I came out, but I don't need the box, it would just be wasted.

Dave, I have burned lots of the ones I get.

Good stuff comes out , scraps and trash goes in
then I burn the whole lot.

You could use yours on the mower shed floor as an old style Oil catch.

It'll burn even better with oil ;>}

Also ...

My Mayan / Aztec works just fine now ! S C R E A M !!!

OK I finally figured it out.

This "NEW" Depron supplier "FROM OREGON" is ...
The Same guy Who, back in the mid 2000's , was offering an expensive Flying Guy "kits"
made from CF and coverings.
He and Otto had "words" over rights to an RC Flying Guy and then I never heard from him again.

Not until a few months ago when I started getting strange requests about
Depron costs , suppliers , shipping methods and shipping costs etc etc.
Then he fessed up about a 20' Container that he bought.

I had never heard of a "20' " container from China or EU.
So once again I just forgot about the whole issue.
Then a few weeks ago a Thread pops up about 180 cases of depron.

The moniker rcsuperhero was not fresh in my mind.
Until the todays' comment sin his 180 case's of depron thread.

O M G ... It's the same guy ! ! !

Do any of you know SGTalon? I bought two planes Voyager and Enterprise D off his website 4 months ago and have had some communication with him about it but haven’t heard any response from him in over a month. Anyone know if he is ok?

I'll give him a call. He bought out his family's company and has been busy all over the world, so may not even be in US.

ZEE, I got a call to Dennis, he may have called you as well, but as I expected, he is busy with work. But also having difficulty getting the kits cut his cutter is as busy with "the rest of life" as he. Hang in there. . .
