Elevator Flips are fun and easy to do with the right setup and technique
- Use a Mad Stab with 90° of rotation up and down.
- Set the CG to neutral.
- A "High" votage battery will yield faster servo movement and a a result more "pop" to your flips. Check to see if you servo and receiver can take the extra voltage. Use a 5-cell AAA NiMh or small two cell LiFe. Foks have also used two cell LiPo packs; but be aware of their potential fire danger.
- Use flapperons-on-the-stick (AKA 4th axis). Add full up or down flapperons to "energize" the flip. Experiment with both directions to see which works best for your aircraft. BPLR (Madslide) and Surfimp (Le Fish Light) use full down (camber) for an upright flip... pro-flapperon). Dawson (Le Fish Light) likes full up (reflex)... anti-flapperon.
