I've been out of any serious sloping for a few years. I've mainly been flying helis with an odd blast with a Zagi from time to time. I has a middle phase a long time ago and enjoyed the build and the character of this Foss kit. I picked up a Phase 6 semi kit to build. Is it worth sticking 4 servos in the wings and splitting the aileron for flaps? If so is there any recommendation for the size of the flaps and what mixes to use. My landing area is quite tight which isn't a problem with a zagi. I'm thinking crow braking could be beneficial but have no idea on the performance of the glider and whether this would be worthwhile.Baldy
Magic - absolute magic to see a real aeromodeller at work.Love it.I wonder who will be the first to make a moulded Phase 6 - with permission of course from the Big Man. In a way it would be fantastic, in another it might be a shame.Probably best left as it is - a Builders plane.Personally, for all my moulding experience, I still get a heap more out of making a built up balsa structure and covering it with doped nylon - especially if its an own design.They feel better flying too. Sun through a built up wing structure? More magic!Great stuff Allen!
I had a P6, but after building the P5 it knocks the P6 into a cocked hat. Better in every respect; I know not everyone likes AMT's, but I don't find it a problem. The other upside is building from plans means you can choose your own wood and other materials.
Rather than lining up the flaps with the ailerons, try them at about 30% of the aileron throw.There will be less drag, less adverse yaw, and roll rate will still be very good.
