So work has progressed on the fuselage and the Hitec elevator servo was fitted. However, it only lasted about a minute before it failed. So I have now fitted a KST M320 servo, which is much better quality, faster, more torque etc.
The rudder was the next thing to be fitted.
With the closed loop pull pull linkage attached
Rudder servo and pull pull mount with arm fitted but wires not connected yet. That will not be done until I've carried out a few other tasks first.
Then I had to do some geometry and work out where the pull pull wires will exit the fuselage. The cross marks the spot.
So my next job is to plug in the wing servo's for centring, and then I have some work to do cutting away some of the TE of the wing where the flap meets it, as currently the flaps do not drop far enough to be effective for braking. So it needs to be as per the picture below.
And talking of braking, this is what I have to do to the spoilers on my model
And that's it for now. Catch you all soon.
