Sorry. Not gettng it. I can't lay the jig flush against the fuze, because it won't slide over the 10 mm diameter carbon tube that is glued into the fuse and sticks out an inch on each side. That 10...

I've never done a flying stab before. Can someone explain how I align it? The pictures are from the Essence instructions site. But my stab incidence checker doesn't fit onto the pivot for the stab....

Ah! That seems like something I should know how to do. But for previous computer upgrades I always just brought my apps over from the old computer with Migration Assistant. Not this time.

Thanks...

New Mac

I purchased Aerofly 7 some time ago (really like it), and then got a new MacBook Pro. Can I load Aerofly on the new computer without purchasing it again? When I go to the App Store, it wants an...

Very cool, John. Can you describe your VG's? Size? Spacing? Placement? How you attached them?

I use a Jeti transmitter with Mezon ESC. It's set up to announce the charge used at regular intervals. So the nice lady inside the radio tells me "1500 milliamp hours", etc., during the flight. I...

Nearly finished with my build. One disturbing thing. When I installed the stabs, I carefully aligned them so that the tip of each stab was equally distant from the tip of the wing. As a result, the...

Does this mean I have to have an "accident" with my Nuance so I have a good reason to replace it?

I did that, rajul. I said "joystick", but I did select the device as a transmitter (the left-hand icon of the three). I just didn't see a place to adjust the trims within the program, and the...

DS-16 USB and Trims

I have AF7, and it's very nice. I am looking forward to using the path and F3A grid.

I am using a Jeti DS-16 connected to my Mac via USB. It shows up nicely as a joystick controller. When in this...

I have a Level program for my iPhone, which I simply rest on the control surface. A little awkward, but good enough.

So, no Mac version? That's really sad.

Will it work in Parallels on a Mac? If so, can I buy the upgrade from 5 that I bought for Mac and have it work on Windows?

Mostly ease of use. I tried a bolt through the tab first and it is really clumsy to take on and off because it's so close to the bottom surface of the stab. This arrangement puts the thumb screw...

All built and flying! As I said, this is my first 2M, and it's awesome. My latest crisis is that the tips of all the color patches on the wing are lifting up. Should I take an iron to them? CA?

Ok. Too bad, though. There are lots of nice joystick devices that would work well as second controllers for Aerofly. Of course you would need the Ikarus converter to be plugged in as the dongle,...

Here's a photo, Mike.

The DX7 (right) goes in through the Ikarus converter. I added a few connectors to the line (white plastic) but that has no effect on its function.
