Nice plane jeff, you'll certainly need to use the rudder more on that one bud, mines now complete and waiting for maiden weather but it looks like that wont be here anytime soon.

well iv hit abit of a set back.as i thought the epp ailerons x4 are very stiff to move and iv tried to work them loose to no avail.so i freed them off by cutting slits in them and they are freer,but on hooking up one 9g metal gear 2.2kg stall talk servo its just not having it.did not think it would.so im going to mount them in the wing. use 2x servos and put them on a y-lead.

Hi Jeff,
really like this one, it will fly great, but as others have said, dont be afraid to use the rudder, rudder can give some great barrel rolls.
Take care
Dave

well here it is all finished.just going to put a prop saver on.
over all the build went ok except the ailerons being very stiff to move and only recommending one 9 gram servo was daft.so i installed two.the wheel pants will not last long they are just thin and crap.could do with a bit more elevator throw.will tinker with that later.over all its worth £43 and thats with postage.

watt test was 153 watts pulling 15.5 amps on a 3cell 1300 25c
