By the way Vo, all of the running and screaming you see the guy doing when launching the whiplash is not required, it usually comes right out of your hand depending on your power plant.
That launch was actually a bit much

If I recall that was flown with a 46FX, it should pull right out of your hand with the 46FX and with the Jettfire 50 it will certainly come right out... if I can help in any way, give me a buzz..

Sure you can help me How much elevator throw should I be getting on high rates??? My whip lost power and went into a tree at about a 15-20 degree angle.. with full up elevator, and it was still moving rather fast at the time No damage though!!!

Default control

You want approximately 5/8"-3/4" up elevator, you need more up elevator than anything else, once you get flying, you can reduce that to 3/8"- 1/2" . Launch on high rate, then depending on your flying tastes, reduce rates after you get on step..

at high speeds, it dont take much..

let me know if you need more help..

Thats one of the ggod things about a whiplash, how many planes can run into a tree and not get damaged??
