Default what to do on a rainy day...

Well the Dish has 157 channels and nothing on....[&:]

so I assembled a seagull F-20 tigershark.

Put a Jett .50 in the nose with a macs quiet pipe.

Set it up for flaperons, just to see ho slow it will go.[8D]

Futaba RX, Hitec 425BB and 5475HB servos, 5 cell 2000mahr battery.

Since it has a 6th servo for nose wheel steering and i will bell flying it off a short paved runway. I P-mixed rudder to Aux 1 on my Futaba 9CA TWICE!! Using the same switch I assigned to the rudders dual rate! Rudder rate 110% and 80% of recomended throw.

P-mix 1 is on for high rate rudder turns nose wheel +/- 15 degrees:slow taxi speed tight turns.
P-mix 2 is on for low rate rudder turns nose wheel +/- 6 degrees: take off mode for finer steering control.

links and trim are off so rudder trim does not effect nose gear. Aux1 is controlled by VR-B so i can center the steering and leave it, or make adjustments if nose gear takes a wack.[sm=bananahead.gif]

still some trim items to go Cowel, wing belly pan, antenna tube, apply decals.

So the US version isn't that much better than ours with the servo hangin out in the breeze then??? I think Vic was talking about ours as he said the same thing when he saw mine. Its a shame as the rest of it isn't too bad, & it fly pretty well

I thought so. You may want to go back and view the thread about the Aussi version and how they tried to fix it. Considering your history you will want a tight back end[8D].

I think Vic meant this hosed up elevator linkage..this is the aussie version..stupid!!!

I dont think you have to worry about it ..but I'd still change the supplied control horns , as Ive heard of similar failures with the sukhio kits they have and yep it was the elevator
