"Some say aileron trainers lose this ability"...

"Some say aileron trainers lose this ability" That's under the assumption that the aileron model does not have dihederal ! (Who said that?) Best of both worlds for a learner is ailerons AND dihederal...

Can I get clarification as to what you mean by "correction"?
If I use rudder with a rudder elev aircraft, it's not because I'm 'correcting' anything. Quite the contrary, it's the main control to...

Missing the point. MHO.
The point is that without ailerons you have no control, or DELAYED control, over your steering. (Relying on dihederal to bank the airplane). It is actually the elevator that...

No it wasn't a gift. I've always been a Futaba man, but I bought this on a whim as I've always rather coveted the JR high-end models. Yes perhaps it was a rash purchase, but it was brand new, been in...

I stand corrected. I've used many motors over the years but haven't encountered such differences in quoted motor sizes for the same output.

I think there could be quite a difference in those motors, the motor diameter and lengths are very different. Check the motor specs, particularly the max amps figure. You'll probably find that the...

I think the REAL problem is lack of wing area. The wing loading must be enormous. It'll have a speed range of very fast and *loody fast!

The other problem may be that big all-moving elevator in...

Well, I know where the wing is going to break if / when it does.

The GofG position must be calculated from the wing AREA. E.g. 28% of the AREA should be AHEAD of the CofG point, and 72% of the area should be BEHIND the CofG. I'll use 28% as a very realistic...
