You might want to get a simulator as well to train yourself at reflexes and stuff like that so you don´t go to the field and crash straight away.

Also you should considering getting basics, like spare props and good glue for fixing.

Oups I didn´t realise you´re the one who posted this :D

Sorry for that....

And yeah setting up elevons is pretty much dialing in a little bit and thats pretty much it. I bet there are a bunch of good youtube videos which show that.

Eventually got that baby singing in the air ,,,, roll to 3.30 to see the flying...it rolls lovely
loops easy inverted no problem....proud of the touch and go at around 9.30 (unintentional)
not recommended on a wing but there you go when a low pass hits the deck call it a
touch and go.....keep flying

I've had some experience with the slinger.#1,reinforce the wing with carbon fibre rod before adding power. I used a ark and it totally destroyed the wing the first time I pulled out of a dive at high speed. The other thing why use an outrunner.These planes are designed for high rpm or high kv inrunners. The motor prop affair that comes on them is worthless.Check out lightflightrc.They have the ark motors and spec sheets for different props. Onceset up these are super good flyers,and they glide forever.
