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
