Hi all, just a quick update I've had second thoughts about the tail on my Alpine (not happy with tape holding the elevator on) so I've cut it off rudder as well and used simple plastic hinges glued in so all is now well
When I grow up I want to be a pie lot 🙂
Regarding the no mod's rule I see this as applying to us using the stock motor/prop/battery set up. Hinging the tail / elevator to prevent the flex distortion when operating the rudder is, I think, this is more of a safety issue. Any comments?
If things don't change they'll stay as they are.
My Flys fine even with the amount of movement on the elevator when rudder applied but strangly didn't seem to effect it in the air at all .When in the glide i can let go of the sticks and it stayed level going in the wind direction fine and landing havn't had any tip stall issue yet .
