I quoted you because I agreed with you and contrasted your "I can highly recommend it" language with the OP's "crucial" language. I thought yours was the correct distinction.

Not only that but elevon reflex is tunable in flight even, much easier than reworking exact wing twist or washout.

I wonder what would motivate them to dispose of the Parkzone name? Must be an interesting story behind that.

Hey Dereck! The Apprentice has SAFE plus AS3X. SAFE has three modes with expert mode being SAFE off. But AS3X is on duty 100% of the time there.

I don't know about the Visionaire.

Did you stiffen up that tail with some carbon fiber? That's what it needs, and then ensure that your CG remains where it belongs.
