    My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    I added a extra servo I had to control the sorta precut aileron spots on the main wing.

    I flew it today and it flies great.
    I am new to RC flight so using ailerons was new to me.

    It was cool, the rudder works nice to turn the plane at slow speeds, and while turning I applied elevator and counter aileron to level the plane while it was turning. It was so cool.

    The Slow Stick is alot of fun.

    My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    How exactly did you do this? The pictures don't work and I would like to see some. I might do this with mine if I can figure out how.

    RE: My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    I know this is a very old post but did you ever find info on adding ailerons to your slow stick well i did
    i had to cut a small hole in top of wing to line up were the linkage rods for the precut spots on the main wing for a small servo i only use 2 servos at this time flap and ailerons later i will make my rudder work after this test is all done by adding one more servo
    test one on the ground or bench flaps work fine ailerons work fine hehehehe
    motor is ready for a test flight
    i found when turning in the air it was more smoother then useing the rudder by its self and giveing less up flap oh was that a roll lol lol a slow stick that rolls wow wow hehehe now i am ready to add the 3rd servo rudder i will update this as soon as i test this roll on dudes

    RE: My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    Check my gallery and you can see how I put ailerons on my Slow Stick. I found they work ok, but, were not big enough to do rolls with. You could cut the aileron larger than the outline in the wing and might have to use a little bigger servo to handle the force on the control surface.

    Good luck

    RE: My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    i didnt cut mine any bigger and i used naro servos from GWS and they work just fine infact the slow stick flew better then i would have belived had so much fun like learning all over again and i have been flying for over 30 years this was a slow motion test for me lol i guess no matter how old you get you never get tired of the fun you get from flying

    RE: My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    Did you look at mine? In my gallery? That's what I used and they did ok. I removed most of the dihedral from the wings, tho. That is supposed to let the ailerons work better. I just didn't get as good as response as I hoped I would get. Of course an undamaged wing would have preformed a little better, also!

    RE: My GWS Slow Stick with ailerons.

    Yes agcatsbest excellent work just like or all most like i did mine i just build a balsa box for my servos to fit in to keep them from moveing and i placed my servos more to the center of the rons then to one side like most plane have made it more stable stoped the wobble or fludder that happends with this then foam
    i tested 3 wings to see witch one was best first one had one servo in the center second was like yours servos to the sides and 3rd servos to the center it worked best for me
    thanks
