You two guys are leading the way for the rest of us, and doing a great job.

The kit is a work of art, a lot of thought has obviously gone into the design. Well done Richard -Proper Job!

I also only got 2 threaded Rods 1long,1 short. I have got my retracts but will need some guidance when the time comes as this will be my 1st installation. 1st twin, 1st retracts, only taken 40+ years.

DD - impressed by your speed of construction, looking good.

Looks amazing Nigel. Must have taken a fair time. Nice work

I agree, masks would be very useful.

30/03/2017 22:00:45


Making good progress.

Graham, although I haven't started mine yet,like you finishing another project, I've been trying to figure out / thinking about the same rear end linkage set up.I have been looking at other plans with the same set up to see how they tackled your not on your own.
Certainly wouldn't put a servo down the back end as you would need a lot of weight up front to counteract this.
Cheers Graham


I'm pleased it's not just me. I like to sort problems before starting a build incase mods need to made. Paul's idea looks an easy solution.

Hi Paul,

Hard luck! perhaps you ought to build a jerry can to go with your jerry plane.

I guess a snake will be much easier to link up than a multi bent push rod. I seem to forget the simple solutions these days.

I have, just got the t/p framework glued up. not going full out yet as I am putting the finishing touches to an old long term project.

I have spent a long time looking at the linkage to the rudders, how to get access etc also whether you can put the servo down the back end. I assume all connections will need to be made prior to glueing on the tailplane.

I seem to spend enormous amount of time thinking and just going round in circles.If I can get round what is now for me a big hurdle I'll be happy.(Think it's one of the problems of getting old)  It's called procrastination.

Hi Bob, it's good to know what things to look out for when in the design process. At present I don't have a printer to experiment with. Thought it better to get to grips with a CAD program first.

It doesn't, matter what servo it is. It's the development and tools that we are trying to learn to use.

Hi Bob,

Have enjoyed working through your 1st 2 designs. I've been wondering how does the printer cope with the small overhang when printing the groove on the bottom of the saddle clamp?

A couple of designs worth looking at -

Servo wing frames

A receiver holder with external mounting lugs and arial guides.

I understand, thanks. i was just checking that I was using the correct part. Yours is coming along well, trust your pleased with it.

Just started to dry fit the tailplane together. Found it quite difficult trying to line it all up whilst putting it together. One thing i have noticed is the bell crank plate is too long to fit between the ribs. Anybody else found this?

My Galaxy Twin scorpion had a similar tail and it lived though many a beating so i wouldnt be too worried.

And lets be honest, why give yourself another part of the model to forget when loading the car? Remembering the wing and tx seems to be hard enough for some so having to remember the tail as well will be a disaster!

Iv'e done that a few times over the years.. I would agree that it would add complications to the build..It's just that the fins and rudders are stuck on the outside with little support. Guess I need to ensure packing the car carefully.

My 110 has just landed. Everything looks really good Richard. Just thinking, how vunrable to damage will the tail plane be when transporting? If so may be worth seeing if it could be made removable. - any thoughts guys

Hi Bob. That's the problem trailblazing with new technologies, slow and cumbersome to start with. Getting new people interested will help to find definitive methods of achieving results using the tools we have on the shortest learning curve.

14/03/2017 10:39:42

Bobw - Thank you for all your instruction so far. Each day I run through it trying to commit it to my old brain. Looking forward to the next instalment.

I have had a look at some of the tutorials available through the help menu. It seems there are at least 2 ways of design.

1. Working with solids as you did in your exercise 1.

2. Working in 2d with sketch and using lot of modifiers, then converting to 3d using extrusion.

I did start look at these tutorials but found it very complicated so I left it.

Is that an added bonus with the 110 ? A free bag of pegs with every kit.  I guess that's fair a 110 for me and a bag of pegs for SHMBO.(only after finishing the build.smiley

Do we also get a choice of colours?

Count me in. I would like to learn a little CAD before committing to purchasing a printer.
