Hi,

Surely used the provided hig speed tape - protection shield on the area, close to the exhaust.
Applied it as a normal decal, water with some cleaning detergent product, so you can slide it until it fits as you want.
Then squize the fluid under the tape with a spatula and let it dry overnight. Works nicely.

-CG slightly forward of recommended by Glider-It.
-Flaps/crow as recommended by Glider-it
-Landing mode condition: Flaps/crow proportional controlled by my throttle stick. Stick middle to up is turbine idle to full power.
Stick middle to down:
1 turbine stays idle or off.
2 Flaps/crow neutral to deployed (fully proportional).
Works amazingly.

Thanks for the info, so having proportional crow and flaps is essential ? or just a nice to have ?

Hi,

All the same as Didier, but programmed a “Landing” flat mode, which deactivates the turbine control from the throttle stick function. (Normally, the turbine is at idle or OFF for landing)
In stead, the throttle function controls my butterfly in this landing mode, so I can keep the thumbs on the sticks at all time.

Just one remark is that I’m suspecting a incorrect incidence angle of the stab. In every phase, the elevator had to be trimmed up about 2mm, which is way to much.
Shifting the CG gives no change. Plan is to measure the incidence later this week, and adapt the stab accordingly. Suspect I’ll have to shim 1mm approx.
my s/n of the Jeemo is 2049, and I know that a fellow Jeemo pilot, with a slightly newer one had to trim up around the same.

Hi,

Certainly at the root of the aileron.
Donˋt forget to dail in some expo too, this will smoothen the turns.



Greets,

Eric
