Thread: Spoilerons ? on my Speedo
12/03/2012 22:49:24

your perfect setup would see a high sink rate with a slighlty nose high attitude

12/03/2012 22:47:29

I'd better clarify that , I dont know what radio your using but you need

at least 3 programable mixes 1: being flap to elevator (compensation)

2: flap to throttle 3: elevator to throttle a few more mixes need if you actually had flaps as well as just aileron you can get Crow braking ( Butterfly) happening

12/03/2012 20:43:11

Now mix flap to throttle and you can have full throttle for flying throttle off for spoileron extention.

The preferred method of sort twists in Balsa is to use a mix of 50 50 water and ammonia on the bare balsa wieght it flat in the sune and let it dry it will be straight from there on in

Yep once that bug bites there is no turning back welcome to you new addiction ,and dont worry to much about the climbs after a season you'll be able to crack walnuts between your calf muscles

and then you get really addicted and start building PSS models lol

my lastest and if you want some thing to look like aluminium you use aluminium

Thanks Tim but its a strange setup and really fussy seem really clunky compared to other forum set ups ,best way is not to post links or paste documents obviously . I apologize for the interruption to the normal posting .

Andy ,my advise is to right now plan on a few 100 pounds a year to begin with as your sloping allowance . Once the slope bug bites resistance is futile , Although I've not seen or flown a wildthing they are a very popular choice in England . There are many other models available but its wise to stick with a model with local knowledge behind it. As to an engine
and a Zagi steer clear of it you don't need either .And I'm sure that most the guys on this this thread would be most upset by the whiring noise of a prop wrecking the serenity of the slope. Stick with these lads and you'll be a slope flying fool like the rest of us in no time
Is there a cure for slope fever ? No you'll never get it out of your system .

its pretty damp down here at the moment we just had 100mm of rain in 6 hrs with lots of local flooding going on,so after 10 years plus of drought now we are going under water

This is the second time this has happened and its my post edited I've never had any problem with thousands of post on many many forums I belong to . That post was no different to any post I've made so there something strange with the forums setup I think I'll give a miss

The eppler section has a bad habit of chamging pitch as speed increases you be forever retrimming at different speeds
The HS section coords above are for a large tailess project

P.S just added a few photo's of progress on my latest PSS build

Hello gents ,
Happy new year to you all , I've just had a look at the model your looking at Ian to me it very pricey for a foam model you could get a 2.6 mtr glass ASW28 for less that are well know flyers . Or a DG1000 of which I have 2 I also have the ASW28 and prefer its flying attitude
still if you looking for a foamie ,then I humbly suggest looking to the ST model range ,
once again they do an ASW28 and a DG1000 with and up and go,They are well proven and widely reviewed . Now back to building for me
cheers all

Shhhhhh everyone will want in at this rate , you've now raised the car accident rate in Britian due to the fact of slopers staring out the windows of their cars looking at every bump in the ground and thinking what wind direction would make it work
