No one has answered the question that was ask by Murry about the control surface horns and the location of the linkage holes. So, do all the horns have the same hold location for the linkage attach points?

Joe. Haven't really had enough time to compare but my initial feelings are that the Krill will be much more capable 3D wise if nothing else due to the massive control surfaces. In the smooth stuff the Krill is still very locked in and very smooth, can't say it is "better" yet but very nice. As you know the Sukhoi is a lovely plane to fly
