Isaac,

My apologies if I've missed it, but how much (maximum) deflection are you using on your elevator?

Thanks!
Hi Ryan,

The maximum deflection are:

Ailerons - 30 degrees up/down
Elevator - 30 degrees up/down

Best regards,

Isaac Najary

Would this approach for control horns be OK for a YS powerd version?

Colin,

I have used ZN horns and this same method on all my ZN planes, both glow and electric. Its safe and easy to do.

hi
just got my Xigris C2 , quality is wery nice!
Havent done much but wings weighs 199 and 198 gr...fuse 810 with cockpit and bellypan less after cuting off edges.
Decided to make new slevs for the wingtube and change the alu.tube for stab with a carbone tube I will use a kind off thinn brown paper to make sleeves for the , think I will save about 50 gr on this..
And for Najary ...nice inforative tread...keep on the good work!

I may be jumping ahead of the build a little but I didnt see it in Chads build either...how do you locate the stab ajuster pin with the adjuster already secured in place? Is the foam cutting so precise that you can just glue the adjuster plates in place and it will be aligned with the pin?

Colin.

Pretty much yes!

The plates that you glue into the stab halves are a real snug fit, well they were on my ZN Twister, also the screw holes to fix the adjusters onto the plates are pre-drilled. On the fuse, the hole points are pre-marked on the sides along with the joining tube markings, simples...........................

Isaac,

have you decided on the colour scheme for the Xigris yet or are you going the same as the Osmose?

Regards,

Andy.

My adjusters were not aligned with the pin... about 1/8" off... won't be a big deal.

Hi Colin,

It is no so important if the foam cutting is so precise or not, I will make the hole for adjuster pin in the fuselage according to the location of the adjuster plates in the stabs.

Best regards,

Hi Andy,

I didn't decided yet on the color scheme for the Xigris, but I have some thoughts of some thing between the Osmose and the Axiome.
