Has anyone used flaperons on the Cloud Dancer? Are there any adverse effects?

I had used a flaperon Mix on mine. But later realized Flaps were not necessary at all for this model. It used to glide in gracefully even in dead stick without flaps. Last minute touch down deployment of flaps would have been helpful in drag of the run offs, but totally a overkill for such light Model.  Mid flight deployment had to be mixed with elevator trim adjustment to remove pitch adverse effects.

I've set it up to use flaperons anyway, as a trainer its nice to have them and experiment and I learnt how to do them on a dx6i as well Smiley

The Turnigy D3536 1250kv on a 10x7 is pulling 461w on the bench with a slightly used 3s battery - could be up to 500w with a new one - this should be plenty of power I hope!

I have some quite severe twist in the fuselage towards the tail! I've managed to get the horizontal stab level by slightly sanding the recess in the fuse and shimming one side with 1/32 balsa.

Meanwhile my aileron stock arrive and the swing is now complete!

I've also significantly increased the battery bay and can now squeeze in 2x 4000mah 2s hardcase packs, or comfortably a 2800 3s with room to adjust for CG. This involved re-routing the nose steering push rod into the cockpit area.

And I made a canopy hatch to allow my large hands to access things more easily.

It is finished!

I have been able to get the wing and tail feathers parallel and level with each other and I hope this will be enough to make the twist in the fuse mostly irrelevant!

For my first balsa build and first time covering I am pleased, but know there is a lot I can improve on!

For now, I will await the maiden!!!

Faced a similar twist in the fuse issue, since the feathers were in line flew just fine.

My best for your maiden.  Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Hey guys, I have finally finished my cloud dancer! Thanks Sanjay for the build log, I could not have done it without you Smiley I am hoping to maiden it soon. I span it up with a 12X6 and it is drawing too many amps for the motor, I was thinking 10X7 orr 11X6. I'll let you know how I go.

A 10*6 on a 1250 KV motor (3536 or higher) works just great!

All the very best for the maiden. Do post a video here Smiley

Hi Sanjay! Its a 3536 turnigy aerodrive 1050KV, running 3s 2200mah. I am down on RPM compared to the 1250kv (I used the 1050 because I had it spare), thats why I was thinking 10X7 or 11X6. I am getting about 40A at the moment with the 12X6.... that motor is rated at 34A..... Do you think the 10X7 will spin fast enough to get my flying well without maxxing out amps or should I go with the 11X6?

P.S, I bought this kit in 2014, it only took me 3 years to finish lol.

Go with the 11X6. The 10*7 could be short on thrust
