As a fellow PZ micro Fitty-One owner (love the bird) I'm following this thread as it's only a matter of time before SPEED and my INEPTITUDE with speed come together, say, with a house or tree[X(]. Thanks for your engineering efforts!
Question: So does that one servo motor control both elevator/elevon surfaces?

one is powerd buy the elivator servo and the other is powerd by the exterior aleron servo and to my suprise this plane is actuly the same speed as the p-51.

it will not handle wind by the way iam going to cut a new bottem fuse tomarrow. i was flying out front and it whent into the asphalt. And also do a build up like te top parts on that one cant wait to see how it look with all the top parts now gota figure that part out now wish me luck may not get a chance to work on the plane untell this weekend.

i hate school lucky it my last year have to tyep an essy thats due friday.

If your spelling is always this bad, kid, I'm glad you don't work for Boeing.

tip stall? must be pretty bad at slower speeds. Eh? Built a wild thing, basically a foamie triangle 28" base and 24" longitude. Only at high speeds does it work but heck, any wind and I have just a powered kite. Is yours similar?

I was told I was dyslexic as a kid and I had to work at it, too, AC.freak, and now I've absolutely smashed it andI write books and have fans and lots of CRITICS who can't "do", so they "criticize"! Sometimes our minds move faster than our ability to spell! We are great Americans and great PILOTS, too.

cool plane. i made a stick and tissue glider modeled after the f117
luckly the f117 is made completely of flat plates, so constriction is fairly easy.
this glider is really unstable. i built another with dihederal, but it still likes to fly upsidedown. where is the center of gravity on yours?????

It's definitely big enough, I have seen planes that small and smaller in working condition.

she glides as well as a lawn dart lol. it likes to dive for the ground. it flies quite nicely upsidedown. i need to dial in the cg and add some up trim to the wings i think.
i have plans drawn up, but i dont know how to get them into the computer.

it would be possible to add rc gear, it is 7 inch wing span, and 9 inches long from wing tips to nose. some mods to the wings would be needed for ailerons, which is all it needs imo, for banking and elevating.
the prop and motor would be the hard part. i would need a micro ducted fan.
