That's backwards, they will never face forward.

Aerosheldon,


As long as the servo and horn are at 90 degrees, if the ball link and turnbuckles are out one hole from 90 degrees on the horn, doesn't that increase throw travel equally for up and down?? If not what if it is dialed in to match the max throw for the short side?


I can understand if the horn isn't 90 degrees, but isn't that party why they have different holes on the metal and carbon horns on the ailerons?


Anyone else please feel free to chime in!


Thanks

OMG I love this plane! Hadn't flown it sense October and I forgot how fun it is!

Swapping the rudder arm around made a lot of difference! HAKE slides are NO problem! Pop tops are so much crisper and rotate a full turn more!

I was going to either put a lot of time in on the Cessna or buy a PAU 100cc edge this somer but I think I'd rather have two of these!

The backup will get an eme60. Probably keep te blue and get some yellow flames for it from B&E

Yeah you are correct about the holes, but I thought you initially just asked if the arm needed to be 90 from the surface.

Anyone tried "SIG Bond" for hinges or control horns?

No, but it should be fine. I got a nearly new OS60 I would let go for $475 with shipping if you want one of those instead of the EME.

I might hit you up on that when the time comes. I still have to grab that slab first hell I'd trade yah for the 50cc Sbach I have hanging in the garage if you were interested and coming to TuckyBro. Lol

The red aluminum landing gear on the EF 88 Edge has 2 sides to it. I have the front part of the gear 90 degrees to the fuse. The back has a slight angle to it. Do I have it on the wrong way?? Does it make a difference?

It doesn't really make a difference but look at the bottom where the axils attach. There should be an angle to that too. The shorter side should be rearward so it will line up parallel to the ground when setting on all 3 wheels.
Also if you look you should see a little toe-in. That should point forward too.

cool! I have 45 degrees on the ailerons, 55 elevators, and working on the rudder soon. Will this be sufficient for 3d or anything else? What are you guys getting?
