Re: Sky Wing Owners Thread

I had a good maiden flight with my new SkyWing Laser but did have a dead stick. Spent some time trying to find the reason and eventually did. Had another flight but not enough battery left for any more. I guess I used up a fair bit of battery in the pits trying to find what was making my throttle position change when I switched to 3D rates. Eventually I found the problem in my program and corrected it. Looking forward to more flights and getting the setup more dialled in. It shows great promise, I think this will be a new favourite!

What a fantastic day yesterday, in total there were about 7 or 8 skywings at the RCFCT field. Paul's maiden was well done, very smooth yet agile on the Laser.

For me, I got my 91" ARS300 dialed in to the way I like it and it's fantastic, my 102" ARS300 powered by an EME120 continues to put a smile on my face, it's now got about 25 - 30 flights, and is super agile, strong and quiet with the JMB canisters and headers.

Does awesome crankshafts, parachutes and other wild maneuvers, yet lands really docile.

Re: Sky Wing Owners Thread

I got out for a few more flights on the SkyWing Laser. This is a really interesting airframe and I'll still be some time getting used to it. Crazy authority on all surfaces but especially the rudder. I noticed in my low or precision rate the plane wiggled noticeably with minimal rudder input so I reduced it twice and it will still fly a knife edge loop in my low rate (maybe 15 or 20 degrees max) and I haven't tried with side force generators. The magnetic pins for wings, horizontal stabs and canopy are great. I had high expectations and I'm very pleased with it!

Sounds like another Skywing convert... Agreed!!

It's one of the few planes I throttle down at the top to do a knife edge loop and just add 2 clicks of throttle near the bottom to round it off. It's very controllable, it's uncanny.
