Default my qhor

hi guys i got a bit bored last week so i thought i would build myself a qhor
then i took it to work today and painted it (i work for peugeot in the bodyshop) so paint is not a problem

the spec is

magnum 36xl for the engine 11x4prop
futaba 3003 servos
6oz tank
10%nitro


if you notice in the pictures the wings have bowed a bit when i baked it in the oven at work[:@]
will this cause a problem??

any comments welcome

You baked it? Coro and oven heat dont get along. Might be a handfull to fly with the tips down like they are.

I don't have enough experience to tell you about reverse dihedral - which it looks like the downward bow would probably mimic. But, in my thoughts, the bow may/might cause a bit of aileron binding - if the trailing edge is bowed.

ok thanks for the feedback

the TE has not warped its only the LE that has ..thats what happend when i baked it for 15minutes at 80o C (just a habit when you paint cars all day long)

anyway ive heated up the LE with a hair dryer turned the plane upside down with weights on the tips and so far its seems to be better

if the weather stays nice it will be flying tommorrow i will let you know the out come

is that hard wood engine mount? cause fuel has the bad habit of getting into the wood. u have to put some lacquer on it or something.

anyway, nice looking plane. i have a qhor too. where did u balance it? mine i had to put a aluminum engine mount to be able to balance at the wing fold as in the plans.

with the hdpe engine mount (well mine was ldpe and it snapped at the first crash) it was a bit tail heavy and didn't fly well. i crashed it a couple of times until i built the aluminum engine mount and now its just fine

well i flew the qhor today along with my spa3dt and i must say the qhor flew fantastic i loved every minute of it

now my spa3dt flew fine apart from when i try to bring it in nice and slow to hover it starts to wobble []...my friends does not just mine

we tried loads of different things like moving CG and more reflex but it stays the same ????


it flat spins really well infact the best ive ever done

the spad is built to plan apart from the engine mount which it made of 3/4 plywood

any advice welcome
