  1. Thought I'd share a build mod, I've just completed on my Willow 1. Perhaps you have similar problems with a model and are wondering if there is much benefit in fixing it... At the English Open, I had no confidence that my wings were even going to stay on. No matter how much tape I put on, the wings would wobble about and never join properly to the fuselage. In the air, the model never quite seemed to grip and respond as I wanted. It's been like it for a long time so I decided to do something about it. Here are some pictures of the method for sorting out crappy incidence pins and wing-fus interface. In addition to fitting a new incidence pin system and filling the gaps between the wings and fus, I thickened the wing joiner with diamond tape, so that it is way more snug in the socket. No more wing wobble. The results are just astounding - I flew the model yesterday in light lift at Whitesheet and despite the gentle air, I was throwing the model around like I never have before. The change was incredible - it's like a completely different aeroplane. I can only surmise that the small movement of the wings during manoeuvres was sapping way more energy than I could ever imagine. Who knew?! If you have wobbly wings or wings that don't join up properly with the fus, it's definitely worth getting it sorted, it seems..
