Default RE: What do you think of FORMOST 150 ?

Good to hear that you and I agree. You are right, too bad we have to do the R&D on these planes. They are real good flyers when they are done right. I had another club member standing with me and he said that it looked like it flew real well, after I got it trimmed out. He was impressed how well it tracked through the rolls. Now you have to rember that I have my ailerons cut in half. I was using almost 1/2" up and down. That will reduce the barrel roll effect from the full length ailerons. I plan on being at Liberty Bell with it.

If you make it down, then we can meet and discuss any other mods that we might think of, like some sort of speed brake. You know it's funny, I don't use Expo either. Also I put in a wooden dowel in my aluminum spar. It made it real stiff. We didn't see any wing flex at all
