Mossie Wing Rebuild

Hi Guys, an update on my Mossie wings rebuild. General comment on the rebuild is that it is fitting together much better and very clean. Really pleased and I think the extra effort required is going to be well worth it.

The photo show the progress, Thanks for your comments and support.

All Best Rod

Mossie wing Rebuild

Hi all who are watching this thread.

I have continued on fitting the flaps and tried several methods and come up with one I like.
I tried my previous method and it looked too messy so tried a few others. Finally produced one that gives the desired movement, Flaps to 45 deg. and back again. Added the servo and then mounted (very roughly) the removable PVC rear nacelle (made for the other wing) but it shows the flap movement and servo fits within the Rear Nacelle design.

Next are the ailerons, I have some ideas of how to build in a hidden connector (Checked with some local model builders and they think it could work) So I will give it a try.

Check the progress, I always appreciate comments as I am looking for new ideas and better ways to build.

All best Rod

Mossie ing Rebuild

Hi all, Bruce hope your camping goes OK and the weather treats you kindly.

Well I started on the ailerons and spoke to some local flyers and in particular the one who will fly my Mossie first. He told me that frequently the ailerons are built to be light and not strength. This causes a problem where they twist, particularly when their movement is controlled from one end.. (That is exactly what I proposed). He made a suggestion of how to strengthen the ailerons . The photos show my current status.

To morrow is a long day where I hope to correctly locate all the hinge points and install the hidden actuator.

All the best Rod

Thank you Roddie....I like the W reinforcement on the Ailerons and the brass tubes to extend the hinges position.

Well the car is loaded and we leave in 2 hrs...Talk to you around the 28th,

Bruce
