Thread: Digital incidence meter
20/02/2019 06:44:22

The holed jewels arrived. All far too small for the naked eye to see. Never mind frown, I know someone that will make use of them.

Ended up buying a digital inclinometer, should arrive tomorrow. I will post on here how it looks and how easy it is to use.

Made a start with the elevators. Also,ade my own hinges up. I decided to use 3mm push rods, bolt the ball link onto the horn and use m3 clevises. It’s all slop free. However, I was going to attach the horn to the elevator but the bolts are TOO SHORT angry

Glued the tail on today. Flying was, again , a washout. Pins were placed in the wing tips and these were the two measure off points. The rest of he measurements were written down a couple of days ago. Everything was glued using the standard methods of check, measure, check, measure. I sat there until the epoxy had gone off.....just in case the Pixies and Elves came in and moved the tail. Everything is cock-onyes. The the fuselage fitting hole was too long packing pieces were slipped in. These have wedged the tail up into the front, it can’t slide to the rear. The incidence is 0*. The next job is to cut new hinges and install the elevators.........what could possibly go wrong now frown. I might even have time to get the canopy cut and fixed.

Haha! I was expecting you to be much older too! That engine sounds awesome - love it. I can’t see how you restrained the model?

I was going to get my restraint but the tail wheel got hooked on the wooden board and was very secure so i left it. I did hang on to it during high power runs though as i didnt think my parents would enjoy having it crash through the window of the dining room.

Today i am going to cut the cowl to clear the exhausts, tidy up the glow cables and order the screws i need for the rocker covers. They are M2.6x7 which is a really stupid size. Thanks for that OS. I also have to do the valve clearances...on all 8 valves :'(

In terms of performance though the thing is going to be a right beast. The prop was a 19x8 menz wood and she peaks at 7300rpm. thats a calculated 19.8lbs thrust and 2.8hp! i think it will be pretty speedy.

If that idea doesn’t work, then I will look again at the digital meter. And all because I want to get the Infinity 90 set up right.....does nothing go right with this buildcrying

I removing the case to clean it , one of the jewels has popped out to goodness knows where...]<$€}¥<~]angry.

I’ve found ....THESE.... on eBay so there’s a good chance of a match. It’s worth a shot.

If I find a pair that fit , would anyone like to have a couple? There could be several in the bag. I can post in on

Gary , great idea. And I know someone with  a 3D printer 

 

Thanks for the input. As I say, I’ve already got the Robart analogue meter. So I’ve got all the brackets and two different bar lengths. I’ve seen THIS on eBay , I just wonder if I could sit it on top? How good are these things?

Anyone know of a good digital incidence meter or app? I’ve got the Robart needle meter but it’s sticking. I’ve asked Robart if they will send any new jewels.

And at the risk of being anal, come next September, I want any Northen nation to bring that bit of gold home.

As long as they have a white shirt wink. Seriously, any 6 nations in the final with the Kiwis will need our support.
