Default RE: Meister 1/5 scale P-47

While I was re-reading the posts I thought of a few things that happened to us with Cherry Mary. The elevators needed thin 1/32 strips covering the hinges. We experieced slight flutter at high speeds.I don't know if you already build like that,and being that I bought it almost completely built,I don't know if it was a flaw in the process. The flaps are so huge that we had to put very powerful servos,otherwise they wouldn't extend fully until very slow flight.Be ready for the takeoffs-it just levitates when power is applied,To make a low pass you have to hold it down when in ground effect.I noticed the green ones are bubbles but don't have the spine up to the veritcal stab. I've heard that there is extra stability to be found with either the spine or the razorback configuration.Cherry Mary is a razor,the new one is a bubble,and I added the spine.Just thinkin' out loud. Later.
