    spacewalker 2 40

    I got a spacewalker 2I flew it for the first time Saturday After a friend took it up for me I'm not a great pilot when i comes to the first flight.Anyway the plane was OK put the throws are real small the arlon are1/6 up and down and the elev.is 3/8 up and down and the rudder is 1inch left and right.if you were going to increase the throws how much would you increase them .I past the trainer stage .The plane seems to be a little docile. If you have a spacewalker let me know what you think and if you think i should change anything.

    It would help if you told us a bit more about your model, like what size is it.

    This was my second plane, still have it and still fly it. I gradually increased my throws to maximum on all the control surfaces with no averse reactions from the plane, just remember to add a bit expo when you increase your throws.

    AA5BY I like it it was a little quick compared to some of my other planes It's going to be a learning for me.I got the cowl on it now and it was balance with only the cowl weight had to take out the oz we put it it at the field.I think I'm going to get a12/4prop and see if that well slow it down a little.

    RE: spacewalker 2 40

    As they say in Texas... your engine pulls it smartly. It is faster than I'd expected it to be with that thickness of wing. Remember though... it has a high aspect ratio wing, which means the lift to drag numbers are good but high aspect ratio wings quit lifting at a lower angle of attack so don't get the nose too high when it is slowing for a landing.

    I got the muffler for mine yesterday so am working on it again.
