CPLR and Picasso get together.....

I thought abstract was a term more likely to be found in a gallery than a flying field! :shock:

Bet it flies nice though!

P schedule tips are a bit more pleasing to the eye....

Certainly a little nicer with those tips. Canaliser is just not so nice, function over fashion though so I guess it must work.

the can does work well.

guy at my club flew his episode with/without it, was almost unflyable without it due to lack of tail auth. it allows you to really tame down your throws and have the same overall effect, ideal for this game obviously.

i've never flown my spark evo 2 without it but it is the in thing this last while as bipes are too heavy generally speaking.

i wouldn't like to be landing that too often with a cross wind with how little wing tip there is, my old episode and spark evo 2 will dip a wing if you are not careful.
cheers

I have heard they work really well, they were just coming into fashion when I stopped F3A. The closest I got was when I put mine on my wee angel S30, although only flat plate, the rudder power was noticeably improved.

I could get used to that Galactika. Wonder if it comes with both sets of tips, I hope it would for the price.

A canaliser isn't required for anything but F and unknowns. It normally makes it harder for P and below as the rudder power is so massive - you have to be very accurate with rudder inputs. A plane without a canaliser it more forgiving.
