The cost of paper and ink for the free plan is microscopic compared with the overall cost of producing the magazine. The plans give the magazine bulk, ie it looks as if you are getting a lot for your money.

So having to set to and order a free plan would result in boredom overload. If you want a thing you want it yesterday not next week.

It could be I am getting old and cynical. angel

I don't think nylon bolts work quite so well with biplanes because, with the 2 wings joined, it's a very rigid structure anyway so there are are lots of strong points that the nylon 'fail safe' bolt doesn't really protect. Of course, I've been known to be wrong as my wife will tell you.

Anyway, as guide, here's a picture of my servo layout. The Savox elevator servo may be a bit over specified but it was one I had in stock for a project that never came to fruition.

So you see, there's no need to fit the elevator servo in any special way. You can thank Gordon Whitehead for the rudder lever idea. It was seeing his own, slightly bigger (and much better) model of G-ACDC at the Ashbourne fly-in in 2015 that inpired me to get mine finished after several years in limbo. The lever is made from a bit of old fibre glass printed circuit board.

Hope it helps a bit.

I have a Green Models Tiger Moth 55 inches span OS 30 FS. ARTF

The plane has been flying for over 10 years and uses the exact servo set up and pull wires pictured and has worked completely without problem.

Loose tea for me and Earl Grey at that.

Non of my visitors want Earl Grey so I have to carry a stock of PG tips tea bags. So not being being any good with tea bags I give them the pot and kettle ant tell them to get on with it.

I saw in one of Alex's writings that he is building what h e calls a Funny Fokker or a Funky Fokker or something like that, so it could be he is dithering over two or three wings.

it was always said that the free plan is the heart of the magazine,

I never build anything, (ARTF exclusively) but I always read the articles with the plan and perhaps dream of setting to and actually building a model again

but I am nearly eighty and just don't have the time anymore

I had a Toyota Lite Ace for eight years from new. All it had was two new front tyres, front brake pads and new wiper blades. Sold it to my brother and he kept it for a further ten years and spent very little on it.
