i am not able to upload photos, or have not done it right, but here goes. the wedgie was built using propworns instructions and pics. i cut the wings from 1 lb. foam. the wing is symmetrical. wing tip is 7 inches and root is 13 inches, and balsa sheeting 3/32 on bottom and 1/16 on top,and this does not include ailerons which are 1 1/2 inches wide. the ailerons where made from trailing edge material and negated the need for sanding to shape. wing tips are 4mm coro, 4 ounce round tank, os 25 fx, hs-225 servos for elvons and micro for throttle. i used a 750 nimh battery mounted under tank, spektrum gear, and what ever covering material i had laying around. i needed to add 1/3 ounce to right wing tip to balance laterally and c of g was 6 15/16. total all in weight was 2 lbs 12 ounces. this plane should go like a bat if i built it properly. all i have to do now is wait for spring.

When you first fly it get it up 3 mistakes high and at wide open throttle yank the stick back. If it snaps out at the top of the loop you have to much elevator. Keep adjusting the elevator until it will do a full up loop at wide open throttle when you abruptly pull the stick back. If you do this then you should be able to fly about full throttle in a combat situation and yank the stick back and not snap out of the loop. Same amount of deflection for down. You will be amazed at the square loops you can do the changes in direction are abrupt at wide open throttle. I use a lot of aileron deflection so the roll rate is quite fast. Then I use my 3 position rate switch to give me 60% and 40% of max throws.

i am using a dx8 and take advantage of the 3 position switch. i start with 1\4, then 1\2 and finally 3\4 inches on both ele and aile , i will have to wait about two months to fly, maybe sooner if we get some real warm weather. my mig 7 coro would snap on loops, never knew why, now the light has come on. got mad and stripped them down and sent to the garbage dump. i will build another when motivated.
