I guess that makes sense. You would only use them when landing so when the wheels go down so do the flaps.
On a short landing strip everything would go down but with the flaps and flaperons(?) on a separate switch?

seperate switch because i don't know how it will be...
so if flaps with flaperons = bad idea i simply use the flaperon switch to disable them.
if all works as supposed i simply assign the switch to the gear switch pos 3 and its done.

i don't know dave, maybe this week.. not sure

i still work on the tanks/rockets to make them removable.
that model was very expensive! i'm not sure if i want to try to fly it  :headslap:
the builld was so complicated, every step had to be done 3x in the head before doing it on the model..
i love the look, all works!
i'm just curios about how to trim it... because of the many functions... i'll find out lol  :b0201:

What a gorgeous day to fly and a great maiden.
I could tell you were going easy with her. Gears down and slow turns with no rolls or loops.
It even sounds good.

So please share: How nervous were you?

I would have been shaking a bit (actually a lot)

a maiden flight = take off - trim and land save!

many people do not understand that, fly till the batttery is empty and then crash the plane.
i render flight 3 right now... up soon.. i hope ;)

i was on the runway and i was not in the mood to take off  :b0209:
people and my cameraman said: ok, now lets start  :coolguy:

i was not so shaky... wonder why... its a 1000eu plane  :b0230:
