    By the way, I never did this because it turned out I didn't have the DVR recording this particular flight unfortunately. Sometimes I forget to hit record!

    I finally got around to replacing my elevons on my Juggernaut tonight. I have been meaning to try this for a while. I got tapered balsa and cut the elevons to a more streamlined shape. I'm hoping it reduces some minor wobble and gives me a little better control. Not that it was lacking before but I'm hoping to eke out a bit more performance.

    Here you can see the tapered edge:


    Here you can see the old elevon under the new one:


    The updated wing:



    I also want to mention that the original blubird servos mentioned in the first post have been replaced. One of them failed. So I replaced them with hitec HS 645mg.


    Also, my new favorite dual battery setup on this bird is with two RMRC 4200 4s lipo's. 40min of tame flying or 25 min aggressive or high wind flying.

    What was your AUW on the 2x3300 4S kypoms? I'm predicting right at 2kg on mine - I hope that's accurate.

    Well, just checking the RMRC stats on the 3300s vs 4200s, you'd save 116 grams.. Brings the weight down to 2.2kg. Not much weight savings if you ask me for the extra 1800mah. Still I fly with both.
