Thread: Aileron servo mounting
06/10/2019 16:40:30

I bought some of these from Banggood, but the slot are way too narrow for my servo mounting tabs, otherwise they are very nice and I plan on modifying them or the mounting tabs for another project.

When I built my first plane I found this article and have followed OPTION 2 on all my builds

Thanks Mark - I missed, or forgot, seeing it in that issue.

Can anyone tell me what plane David is holding in the Autumn special edition?

I found 1/4 scale dummy engine plans for homemade balsa version at "The" and printed the pdf at 66% so that I can make one. **LINK**

Using saddle clamps rather than epoxy will allow the horizontal section of the wire to act as a torsion bar.

I also use one of my Tx switches for "throttle cut" and have covered it with some Red heat shrink.

I set up the Spectrum Tx as per the manual

I also am very careful to keep my hands out of the prop arc.

My local hobby shop usually has the last three month in the racks, maybe check yours out. I'm building this plane and when I went in for wheels last week they still had 3 copies of the June issue.

I also dislike the new viewer. My main problem is loosing the "Print" function. I've built several planes from the free plans and like to print the articles that go with them. The article is the only building instructions for the plans other than the forum thread, and some of those are getting pretty thin these days. The 3D view can be very helpful at times.

With the old printer you could print the page or save it as a pdf, which is very handy as then you can enlarge it and print it at a bigger scale.

Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Sabre & MiG15 RCM&E 2018 Special

My FMS 3S fans tested at:

559 grams thrust

33.8 amps

351.5 watts

10.4 volts


I found that a 2200 battery had a very very large frontal area and blocked too much of the airflow, even a 1800 is big.

I think his newer designs with the large side inlets and the battery out of the airflow will be a much better design.

Beautiful plane Martin, I hope mine turns out as nice. Was it very tough to do the covering around the leading edge with the slat mounts glued on?

The mjetion of a locking device for use with carbon control rods prompts me to ask how to these ( the silver items) work? I’ve tried to fit them in various guises, but nothing I’ve tried is correct, or doesn’t appear to be!

Cheers to all.

Glyn - Sullivan also sell a very handy little TOOL that makes installing and removing the clips very easy.

In a LORD engine mount system there would also be a metal tube inside the mount so that you can torque the bolt  properly.

Yes - you want to completely isolate the firewall from the engine mounting screw.

Hi Dwain - I've received my pilot, now I just have to lengthen his torso and repaint him to look more like a bush pilot.
