I'm most of the way through building this kit, and realised we had not got a thread for it on this site. Although I will build it with a motor, my aim is to see how it will perform on the slope in pure glider mode.

So, aside from being interested any experience with this kit, what prompted me to start the thread is to ask if there are thoughts out there on Tx setup. The instructions don't suggest using any reflex for the ailerons when the flaps are down. Likewise there is no suggested aileron differential. Has anyone experimented with this?

I have an unstarted Hollein Introduction which is the non aileron version of the same model. There are several threads on both models in the RCG site here's a search result for the Inside.

BTW I downloaded an English translation of the Inside instructions from RCG.

The "inside F5J" is very light for a sloper..

I have one, built and ready to cover (enthusiasm stalled at the moment). I'd planned to use it in thermal competitions. It will be setup simply at first, similar amounts of reflex and camber on all ailerons/flaps for flying and speed. ailerons on the outer and maybe 50% aileron on the middle, none on the inner. The inner only will have up to 8o degrees of down as braking (as in all my other F5J planes), but have not yet thought of crow braking (I don't think it will need it).   This arrangement will use 8 channels, my present max.
