RE: Wish me luck!

Nice looking Dawg, glad to hear the maiden went well. Sounds like you may want to move the CG
back a little bit. Mine is at 9.25" but it has a 1" shorter cord too. I have a Thunder Tiger .46 on...

RE: Setup on Sickle

Gringo

I have my COG at 1 7/8" and It is borderline tail heavy so I plan to move it ahead about 1/8 or 1/4"
It may fly where you have it but I think it will be very pitch sensitive. You could...

RE: SPAD Sickle with pics

RE: SPAD Sickle with pics

It flies very well, stable on the high speed runs and corners very quick.

RE: Bulldawg assembly ?'s

Clean
Is there a newer excel program for calculating speed? Mine's a year or two old and it did seem like the rpm's were kind of low on your runs.

I was wondering if you radared the Dawg's flights at the funfly or if you did a Doppler analysis.

RE: 3D SPAD Machine

Thanks Chris. I think I'll give it a shot. I'm willing to give up a little of the floatiness for better power to weight.

RE: 3D SPAD Machine

Chris is right on about the Edge. The Spa3dt hovers better but I wanted something more precise when doing things like rolling circles, sometimes the Spa3dt has a mind of it's own when rolling.
