      What's up with all that aileron and elevator fluttering?

      The stabilizer was right under the esc and picking up emi. I moved the stabilizer to the nose and that all went away.

      I've put them in my Freewing 70mm F-16 and love the sound there too

      I have a 3 axis stabilizer in the plane and it was getting interference from the ESC. I've moved it to the nose and all is well, thanks,.

      I'm actually looking into making and selling R/C jet whistles.

      Nice. Im going to add to mine also. and good idea to paint the exhaust too.

      I also painted red the exposed area above the flaps when they are lowered - looks great and is authentic. Stab shake was from a 3 axis stabilizer. I've removed it temporarily - I had it installed at the rear of the battery compartment and I think it was picking up interference from the ESC. I plan to move it to the nose and see if I can get rid of the interference.

      thanks for posting. some thoughts. i am not it favor of making a model noisier. having said that, at 2:26, ailerons seem to move on their own. interesting stab movement, at 2:53. cheers

      Yeah, the whistles are for the low RPM taxi out to the runway sound.

      Oh and noise wise, the whistles add to the part throttle realism, but you can't hear them above half throttle or so. Since most flying is at half and above, it really shouldn't result in an increase in the overall decibel level of the jet. I think these 12 blade fans are a much better sound and probably quieter than the fans with fewer blades. I don't care for the sound of a 5 blade EDF.

      Everything seems to work well in flight, but the stabs do shake on the ground. I think it may be some resonance due to exhaust flow. I saw the same with ailerons in the cradle - they've never done that on the ground. Might be the stabilizer sensing vibration but I don't know. It's puzzling, but doesn't seem to be problematic. This plane is just fantastic in the air. It may be the best flying plane I own, prop or EDF.
