    Robert, I would see if the wings can be adjusted to zero. Of the two aerobatic bipes I have flown ( CG Ultimate Nd Dave Patrick Ultimate ) both of them had the wings at zero with the stab at 2...

    The season is off to a rough start. Having lost one of my brand new Macchis just before the race and then being a bit gun shy to really push the one I still have I didn't do too well. If everyone...

    I would use nylon tube as guides. It would be best if you can run a guide tube the full length. Using some carnuba wax on the CF rod will make the interface really free. When setting up a model this...

    I agree. When I was big into sailplanes I would always adjust CG so that there were no pitch trim change over the speed envelope. Nose heavy and it will want to climb as the speed increase, tail...

    you are correct, I was thinking it was the older version. I'm still leaning towards the servos not centering.

    Sorry but your explaination just does not hold water. First I have flown airplanes that were very nose heavy. No roll stability issues. Aerodynamically there is just no possible connection unless he...

    There is no way that CG can cause a roll instability unless its tail heavy and the snappiness that results is a more a function of pitch instability then anything else. Suggesting the default of "...

    CG has nothing to do with this issue. Either the ailerons are not centering, the wing is warped or reverse expo has been adjusted in.

    What servos are on the ailerons? There is nothing inherently unstable about an Extra. It should remain wings level without issue. You could have a bad servo or two. Binding linkage. Or a warped wing...

    The structure is comprised. About the only way to fix would be to inject epoxy in the affected area and vacuum bag. Problem with that is you dont know if the original bond will fail in a different...

    One thing I have noticed is the different incidence settings on aerobatic bipes. I have a Reed Falcon kit that will be started soon. The wings are both set to zero using the stab as reference but the...

    Here is what I see wrong with those two statements. Both of those statements assume that you can achieve the perfect balance statically. Not possible. Most kits and ARFs will give you a starting...

    I don't think I'm missing anything here. Then again I have been flying for almost 40 years and the way I tune CG may be somewhat old school. I set CG by how the airplane is flying. Not what someone...
