    I've been a long time JR fan until recently. I bought a Hitec A9 and have been pretty happy. Programing is simple and straightforward. Of course I bought my A9 just before the 9X was released. ...

    VERY good advice except it's hard for new guys like me to separate the meat and the bones;) I guess the best way to do that is to fly and trim, keep notes and find a mentor. I can do everything...

    Yes the Datum or center line as you call it can be an arbitrary thing. It can be anywhere on the airframe and need not follow any particular line. From what I've read many times it is the base of...

    I used to fly off a gravel road. At 24ish feet wide it was not a problem to land on. I don't remember what I used for landing length but I was flying an Ace Super Pacer. IMO 150 feet or if in...

    I was sent some info from the Classic forum. The "Flying Fork" from the 70's returns. It looks like a very viable thing to use. Definitely something to think about.

    Thanks CW! I've been doing a little looking and the BJ Craft Nuance 70 uses a FFS. It has what appears to be a conventional control horn sticking out of one stab half. No "fancy" linkage at all. ...

    Did you remove the hose and check it? The hose in the tank could have a hole just above the fuel level in a vertical climb. That would result in "sucking" air. It doesn't matter if the tank holds...

    Do you have a photo or drawing of the linkage? Part of the draw to the FFS was not having to adjust the stab to center the elevators. It is "self adjusting";)

    Flying Stab

    I see there are "some" planes using a full flying stab. Is there enough benefit to make this worthwhile? I intend to build one of the older Insite models as an entry level plane. If this is...
