    Yes Brett, I think there has been plenty of explanation from both sides.

    Now I guess it's for horse to decide whether it's the trough or the dam. Lol.:rolleyes:

    We're not talking about a big slow loop. Get any model too slow and you will need down elevator to try and make the loop round. It's about how to perform a round loop.

    I'm the only one seriously flying pattern in my home state of Tasmania. We only have a few comps a year. I travel to mainland Australia 3 to 5 times a year for the major comps and at around 2k each...

    Same here to all the above complaints.

    Explorer and google chrome. At work, home and any internet connection inbetween. 2000 km's across 3 states.

    The datum of the plane is not arbitrary and it is set at a particular line of the fuselage. The designer of the plane would have already determined where that is.

    There is no real point setting...

    I wasn't trying to start a YS v Contra war, just saying that the Contras are expensive and you can't argue with that.

    One 185 has done 127 flights and the other 116 now and neither have been...

    Wow indeed. Add a motor to that and that's more than I paid for two YS185cdi's with Super Mounts.

    I do the same thing for firewalls, but lately I've been wondering whether it's really necessary. Going to try Hysol 9462 on my current build.

    That's pretty impressive. It will be interesting to see how 9462 stands up in comparison.

    I have never used Hysol until now. I have glued my first formers in with 9462.

    Just an observation....

    Doesn't look like a four stroke muffler. The 160 runs fine on a long muffler, but haven't tried 170 and above.

    Ys's will usually run very rich without quitting, so I don't think that is the problem. Could be a lean regulator.

    Using aircraft grade ply, you can use a thinner ply as well which also saves weight.

    In regards to CA versus epoxy for servo mounts, (I always use epoxy), it may be surprising as to how well CA...

    Just be careful who you get to paint it. If you use a auto paint shop, they tend to paint heavy.

    Yeah Brett, it's a bit like the spiral slipstream I suppose. Everyone has a theory. Some good comments/ideas from both sides I think.

    Does rudder control ever become second nature? Lol.

    Yep, seriously.

    If the CG is set with the datum of the plane at zero, the wing set at 0.5 degrees and the stab at zero, the stab will be zero in level flight at the speed the plane is trimmed at.

    The stab doesn't provide lift no matter where the CG is. Most stabs are set to zero which is the same as the datum of the plane and this is the attitude the plane will fly level flight in. The stab...

    To get negative G's, you need to push down elevator as the positive incidence on the wing is trying to make the plane go to the canopy, which is positive G"s.
