Okay,

In similar manner the user manual (perhaps an updated manual) lists three options for flaps. This of course pertains to the modification I am about to do with Elevator halves.

Guys,

I had an opportunity to measure the UP Elevator Deflection on each Elevator Halves and was horrified to witness that the LEFT Elevator Half has 1/2 inch more than the Right Elevator half.

This certainly caused the model to ROLL to the Left on each LOOP attempt and certainly caused a stall way UP high and subsequent spin.

I will try the least expensive and less intrusive solution to the issue by disconnecting the clevis at the Right and see about increasing the RIGHT Elevator Travel while decreasing the LEFT some as well.

Okay guys,

Got down to get her done with the required adjustments and it turns out that I will not need to add another servo for making Elevator Halves with their independent servo. I did go to the Hobby Shop and bought the Reversed JR SPORT ST47 (Part Number JSP20050R ), however, I will not be needing it since I was able to perform the adjustments at the control surface clevis end.



Additionally, during the 2nd landing the Nose Wheel steering quit working and the Keeper just came off from the Rudder Servo Arm so, I didn't have any plastic lock to match the size diameter of the keeper I am using so, I used a Wheel lock collar and worked like magic.



Also, I activated the model and double checked (Verified) that both Elevator Halves were matched for the entire travel and at every level including when it is at neutral.






I can't wait to fly it again!opcorn:

Guys,

Reflecting on the Maiden Flight give me goose bumps that I didn't lose the model on Take-Off. Yes, I may have horse UP the model before its time but, I am certain that when I pull UP Elevator the model started its Roll maneuver to the Left as a result from the uneven Elevator halves!

I was lucky that I let go of the UP Elevator Pressure thinking that I was on a STALL due to my efforts of horsing up the model too soon.

In any regard, I just can't wait to see the model zoom like a home sick dove, like this LOW FAST PASS during the Maiden Flight!

This is perhaps my first RC Airplane Model that has a tapered trailing edge Elevator and for me was illusive for my eyes. The Elevator Halves looked okay when operated during my initial checks. My thoughts that the model had previously flown using GLOW power and the Elevators should have been setup properly during the previous owner, right? How WRONG that thought was! It may explain why (Chad) sold me the model as it looked pretty NEW!

As far as the Speed, I am just guessing and was just messing around with a wild guess estimate. I am hoping to have someone with a Radar device to make things more accurate.

Guys,

Wow!

She is a terrific flyer!

After the Post Maiden Flight Adjustments, especially the Elevator Halves, it turns like she is on rails and oh, I didn't stall her up high as I was ready for her during a large wide loop!

She still comes in fast even with flaps.

Select High Resolution and Full Screen!

4th Flight

Guys,

Can't wait for Gerry's picture results as the sky was perfectly BLUE with partial clouds and he was able to place the camera in the optimum mode for best quality and sharpness.

Here are my own pictures from my iPHONE 4S while the model was resting at the setup table.

Wow,

Today, I flew my F22 Raptor for about 6 minutes and it was pretty much at 3/4 Throttle for exhilarating speed and performance.

The charger just quit and placed back 2256mAH into the Admiral (MotionRC) 4-Cell, 4,000mAH, 40C, Lithium Polymer.

Seems like I am getting very good performance from these packs and I am planing on ordering some more.

Going to fly again in the morning!

Okay guys,

As promised, Gerry came through and captured some neat pictures of my Hangar9 F22 Raptor while In-Flight (Fast Passes). It really helps when nice weather conditions exist with BLUE sky!

Guys,

Sorry, no pictures nor video!

I was able to slow down the model in various high altitude circumstances and finally had the guts with a good Head Wind down the runway to slow it down a bit and the model majestically slowed down at the edge (beginning of runway) and it hit my target with was the grass immediately short of the runway and it rolled into and on top of runway for a spectacular taxi back to the pilots station!

Of course, "head wind" really helps!

I found a new box on the web, installed a motor that i had (G60 500), a talon 90, some servos (Spektrum A6050), add a Ramoser with 5 blades (11x8), used a 4000mAh/6S nano-tech and here she flew again, what a nice place ...
