David Baldovin replied to Hennis de Klerk's discussion Adruplane drops my full up elevator input down to 20% down elevator
"I checked again and indeed the elevator was going from full up to a little down. The radio was set at 150%. When I changed it to 140% the elevator held. It would be good to know why."

"Sorry for the late response. Yes the iPhone will fit. The plane has a large space forward of the wing to add equipment. Mine fit four three cell 2250mAh lipos and all the electronics for RC and UAV. The plane was heavy and landed at light speed for…"

"Hi, I am looking into buying one.   My son would like to put an iphone inside of it and use the iphone as the camera.  Are the insides wide enough to fit an iphone with protective case?"

"Third flight started very well. It climbed out a bit erratic but easily gained altitude. After about 5 minutes of getting used to it with the additional weight from the APM and getting her trimmed I switched it to stabalize. In stabalize it went…"

I am going to start my buil this week as well... Let me know what you think of the kit so far. 

I plan on using strong magnets to hold the wing sections together and relocating the servos to the boom with a button quick connect.
