I didn't care much for REF.
I traded my 3.6 REF wing for 3.2 FH.

Started work by making flap horns since I already made a set for REF wing.
This time all linkages will be carbon rods with Hayes clevises at control surface and Sullivan steel clevises at servos.

I was able to score one brand new for almost 30% of retail and just couldn't refuse.
I am an advocate of full house planes. This is my first attempt of a bird w/o ailerons.
I will try to make my flaps work just a little as ailerons. I will have to change the horns, so i get enough travel both ways. Up travel is limited by wipers and angle of leading edge of flap and trailing edge of main part of the wing.
Will find out how that works
I've seen on other builds AUW of low 50oz as goal.
I'm setting mine to below 50oz! (1417g)
This goal limits me, what hardware I end up using.
So first thing is make my own horns.
Here they are: 1mm thick woven carbon.
