Rover, both the SmoothE and the ACE have ailerons. In both cases, they are full length "strip" ailerons.

The primary advantage to the SmoothE, if you are a relatively new builder, is the foam...

David, you might look at the Delight system from Dimension Engineering. You'd have to extend the wires from the stock lengths, but it is a pretty sophisticated system. It took me awhile to figure...

NFG, I'd write Bill Stevens at SA and ask his opinion. I think, if you've got a regular AR6400, you need an ESC as well as the 180 motor. There is an AR6400LBL that has a brushless ESC built into...

Kev, as long as there is no covering present, you can heat the epoxy with a heat gun. It will soften right up, quite a bit. You can then use your #11 blade to cut it/trim it where you need to.
