Default Skymaster F-15 question

I recently bought a used Skymaster F-15 with a as good as new Jetcat P-120 Sx in it (2hrs runtime)

I'm in the progress of doing a "D-check" on it, and while I'm at it, a M.L.U......

Now, I forgot to take a note on the neutral setting of the elevons, could someone who has the same plane point me in the right direction? should the TE of the elevons be in line with the pointed rear fuselage extensions when trimmed for level flight? this is the way I remember seeing it, but I noticed the elevons have a fairly positice incidence then....is this right?

Thx,

Wim

Don’t you mean a 'structural 3C check combined with a CPCP check

I've got that incidence meter, and i've downloaded the "manual", but from that it's not very clear what the neutral setting is....

thx anyhow,

Wim

a CG slightly aft of recommended is much better IMO........ it's center of the forward wing tube. those settings for throws will fly it just fine, tweak them to your liking after flying it.

Specifications in directions work. Start there and adjust as needed.
