I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Heh heh, I could go to town on this one! Smile

I'll answer your question with another question instead though: Define "more effective"?

On something like a Super 60, I would go for whatever is easiest to build. Generally the bigger the aileron area (in relation to the wing area), and the more that area is concentrated towards the wingtips, the less aileron deflection you will need for a certain roll rate. Putting outboard inset ailerons sometimes presents difficulties with routing linkages/cables and whatnot, hence the reason for strip ailerons.

Hope that helps Smile

Andy

Thanks Andy, I will be fitting inset ailerons in the wing and fitting a servo on each to eliminate the problem of bellcranks etc.
Just stripped the fuselage and wings to find a fair bit of work to do on joints that are starting to fail. I guess that the original nylon covering has done a good job of holding it all together all these years!!
As the nose area is built mostly of 1/2" balsa which is saturated with fuel this will have to be replaced and I reckon I can make it lighter and stronger.
Anyway its a long term project and we will se how it turns out.
Thanks for the info.


Keep well Very Happy

No problems!

I would go for the twin aileron servos too. Not only does it make things easier to build, but the linkages are more precise, and you build in some redundancy too. If one aileron servo fails, you still have some roll control Smile

Post some pictures of your progress anyway!

Cheers
Andy
