Thanks for the info.
It may seem a bit odd that I have put the 2200mAh so far forward when the spec suggests a 1300mAh. The reason is that that Hobby King glue a chunk of lead, 0.83oz (24g) inside
the front of the stick!
Having knocked it out means that the much bigger heavier battery has to go further forward to compensate but overall it has only added just over 1 oz to the total weight.
My intention is to fly the Slow Stick in its original condition for a bit to get to know how if performs.
I am impressed with the aerodynamic quality of the wings and tail but almost all the rest of its features do not seem to have been designed to the same standard!
1. Whilst the aileron servos are neatly 'buried' in the wing why does each aileron require a 9g servo to move its surface that is under half the area of the elevator that has only a single 9g servo?
2. The moulded hinges of the elevator and rudder require a considerable force to achieve even a 30 degree deflection likely rather more than the aerodynamic load.
With proper free moving hinges much smaller servos could be used.
3. If the ailerons servos can be buried in the wing why not the elevator and rudder and get rid of long heavy push rods and their drag creating guides at the same time.
4. Presumably for shipping reasons the CF fuselage stick is in two pieces with a 'joiner'. Although the join is likely to be the weakest part it does allow the possibility of using a rear section of much lighter construction.
We shall see!
