I figured now was a good time to get the aerotow mechanism hooked up while I still have easy access. I made some mounting hardware for the servo...



The aerotow servo is mounted slightly off center so that the control arm is somewhat centered. The butt of the servo will protrude out into the right side a tad but it should be plenty thick enough to accommodate it...



Hooked up, adjusted & working like a charm...



I plan to place the battery up in the nose but I don't want it interfering with the aerotow release pushrod. The solution was to add a battery tray. As I'm not sure where the CG will end up I added several notches for the battery tie-down Velcro...



Time to add the sides
The rest of the radio instillation will be attached to the fuselage sides. So before I can proceed the sides need to go on...



On goes the other side...



Added some weight, will let the Gorilla Glue do its thing for a while...
