    just to confirm,on the f18 wing the wing LE is chamfered but on the photos the TE also looks chamfered if so how much,hoping to start cutting parts out today.

    Hi Andy. Mostly I chamfered about .2 to .3" on the LE. On the TE, I didn't chamfer it except the edge for aileron.

  11. Well the SU-30SM had it's maiden, no color other then some wing tape underneath. Launched beautifully and seemed to fly really good except I had very little pitch control so I only did a few circuits and brought it in. Minor changes for the elevator throws and ready to demo again.

     
  12. After the maiden flight, pitch was very sluggish so........ 1st put in a battery of the right size, I had balaanced it with a 1500 3S battery and by mistake put in a 2200 3S battery so it was very nose heavy. stupid me. ;) I also upped the throws for the elevator, now it flies and handles just awesome . Not sure why but the camera split the flight into two files???

    Welldone Wildthing! Congratulations on the first maiden flight

    The throw on mine is at 80% on both ailerons and elevators. So, hopefully it will do good. Waiting for its maiden shortly.

    So, new thread forward, shortly

  14. I will go back into the shop and get a measurement to see how much they move now. it's smooth and feels really stable. :)
