    Time for Maiden, I will wait to sand and paint it, want to know how it flies with a true speed airfoil. Waited for better weather, but in vain ... It's been thunder and rain ... But otherwise weak winds ... I'm hoping for a joyful ride tomorrow :). Here some pictures.

    ..BTW, Does anyone know? EMP/TGS 6x3E vs APC 6x4E Which one has the greatest thrust (full throttle)


    Final settings made for Maiden ... COG ended up 1 1/2" further back than FRC stock. This will be exciting...:confused:!

    Love the panel lines Jay.
    Do you ever fill the score/folds ?

    I did once, but it's not worth the effort in my opinion. F1 sands his score lines down which looks good.

    I agree with Jay. I have also filled and, yes it looks good, but so does sanding and sanding is a lot less work. I give myself no more than 5 min with a sander now. If I didn't limit myself I'd go overboard and end up with a pile of dust!

    Ooh daddy! That was like a bucking Bronco! I had a feeling that the cg would be off with the airfoil wing, but didn't know it would be that far off! The f18 wing behaves more like a straight wing in that respect. Mine flew great with the mjv3 but without TV momentum is king! Is there any damage?

    I think it survived without any major injuries ...
    Will take a closer look later.

    Unlucky lars, didn't look like to much damage. Have you got room to move battery forward or use a bigger one?

    Just finished my f18, 22oz with a 1800mah zippy compact, 6 9g servos and the focal price 2700kv motor. Electronics just fit in the fuselage if you don't want to extend them to the canopy area. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Jay,
    I can not move the battery further forward, but I have a 2000mAh, so I'll try that.
    Good luck with yours! It's a nice one!
