The DAGGER pitch problem appears 2 have been sorted. I have changed the wing shape from asymmetrical ....a very flat bottom...to roughly symetrical.... have only had one flight so far due to weather conditions ....fingers crossed..

That's going to be a bit of an unorthodox design Chris.

The last Dagger clapped its hands ,i was using a very light aluminum spar,the good news was that  quite  a few of the corflute parts survived ,tail feathers,ailerons ect and all other accessories  survived a very hard nose in....made the rebuild fairly easy.

Hi Kennyglide, my boy is hassling me to help him glue his wing together. I remember asking you once about what you glue the spar (or is it spars with the latest wing?) in with, but I can't remember what you said. Was it epoxy or be really fast with the glue gun? 

Also, with your latest symmetrical wing, did you use the same plan measurements or tweak it to keep top and bottom measurements the same?
