And here to report that the wing flies - and flies like a dream indeed.
Had a few hiccups at the field though - First launch was a side launch with full power. Planted it into the ground - i suspect due to not enough up-elevator trim.
Resulted in a broken prop, which was replaced, and the second launch went well. I had a friend to help me do the launches.
Flight was amazingly smooth - Did loops, rolls, and low passes . Landings were stress free, just glided in for a super-smooth landing.
Few things I ned help on :
- I am really uncomfortable with the launch. I want to do it myself, so i do not need to rely on someone . I have seen al the videos, and i am scared to try the launch without power. The side launch is what i did but the motor swings the plane, and difficult to do a straight throw. PLus impossible to take a few steps like that.
- I need a way to better mount the winglets. I had used CA, but it seems to be coming off. I do not have goop available here as the manual says to use. How about using 2 pairs of magnets n each ends ? Or is that unnecessary weight addition ?
- My motor OSMA 3800-1200 seems to have developed some vibrations after the first land. Even with no prop it doesn't run as clean as before. Should i suspect a bent shaft ?
Thanks guys !
