I didnt take any pics of the boom before covering the mechanism. I used some hobby shop alumunum tubing, made a wrap around clamp to use as the pivot for lowering the boom and for attaching the linkage to the servo. I then attached a piece of carbon fiber rod to the end of a long piece of golden rod to make the telescoping part. I had to fabricate a very long servo arm to get the travel I needed to get the rod to in and out a reasonable distance. I wish I had taken pictures, it took me a while to figure out just how to make it all work. Also, just two working engines.
Good timing on the lost screw post, I lost one last weekend. If anyone has an airliner come out and join us at WATTFEST 2012 near Tampa Florida on 13 and 14 October, if its electric powered, its welcome at WATTFEST. A few pictures of mine and others airliner projects.
