Well, we got up early Saturday morning to beat the winds and completed the maiden on the ESM Hurri!!!!!
I had my mate recheck the manual in regards to the elevator throw, and he found that he was mistaken and that it only asks for 30mm each way. When we put the throw meter on it, it was closer to 50mm[X(] Anyways, we corrected that and re-checked all the throws. we were a little short on the ailerons, which for flight number 2 i increased to the manual's specification.
She flew beautifully!!! it did need a fair bit of aileron comensation to correct a roll to the left, but other than that, it was fine! very smooth and stable model, and the landing speed is sooooo slow it's not funny!! I brought her in a lot hotter than what is possible for the maiden just to be sure.
In the end we managed another flight and only just beat the winds which got quite strong after that.
Can you give me the cowl dimensions , I want to see if any of the gas engines I have would be a good fit and cowl in completely , I have to find a good home for some of these engines LOL and need your help
