Akabek, no i haven't flown it yet. but will do soon. IMAO flutter has nothing to do with prop. But it would be good to rebalance your prop. have you checked all hinges ? Too much gap ?? .. if too much gap, just seal it with clear ultracoat.

Re: GW Slick 540 35cc 76 inches

Before my last flight I added some Blenderm tape to seal the gap but I still noticed flutter at high speed. I also swapped out my aileron servos. I will pull the wings out and inspect them to see if I can find anything.

Let us know how the plane flies. I still need to fine tune my CG as I am a little nose heavy.

Nice looking bird Yvan! But not a fan of those wing tippers. I realize their function, but just don't like the looks of them.
