Unfortunately, no.

There is a hard plastic insert in the foam stab. It is this insert which fits over the 2 tubes on the fitting which inserts from under the fuse tail. The plastic bit the v-stab fits in then has the 2 'rods which fit inside the tubes, and secure with the screws from underneath.

The stab insert is a snug fit on the tube fittings, but it doesn't help if the insert is solid, but the foam can move around on the insert.

I'll have a look this evening, but with the tailfeathers assembled, I don't think you will be able to see much. If any value to be added, I'll take a pic.

regards

So the slop occurred where I outlined in blue, only on the opposite side? I might just wick some cyano in there as a safeguard.

Thanks.

Hi CT,

No, there was no slop between the holes and the locator thru' the fuse.

The entire plastic insert was moving in the foam stab. Along the red interface.

regards

Gathering the bits now ...

OK guys and gals ... After reading hundreds of pages of posts, I have finally purchased the following for my P2K ... (still in the box) ...

PRODUCT ID: NTM2836-1200
Model: NTM Prop Drive Series 2836 1200kv / 530W
Kv: 1200rpm/v
Poles: 6
Motor Wind: 12T
Max current: 36A
Max Power: 295W @ 11.1V (3S) / 530W @ 15V (4S)
Weight: 85g
ESC: 30~40A
Cell count: 3s~4s Lipoly
Bolt holes: 16mm & 19mm
Bolt thread: M3
Connection: 3.5mm Bullet-connector
Prop Test Data:
10x5 - 11.1V / 195W / 17.6A/ 1.02kg thrust
10x5 - 14.8V / 430W / 29A / 1.5kg thrust
11x7 - 11.1V / 295W / 26.5A / 1.12kg thrust
11x7 - 14.8V / 530W / 36A / 1.48kg thrust

HK 40A BlueSeries SBEC 4A
Same as “Mystery” Series
PRODUCT ID: Tz40A
Cont. Current: 40A
Burst Current: 60A
Battery: 2-6 Cell Lipo / 5-18 Cell Ni-XX
SBEC: 5.5V/ 4A Output
Size: 52*23*7mm
Weight: 30g

44mm Alloy Folding Prop Spinner w/3.17mm/4mm & 5mm adapters

9.5x5 Carbon Fiber Folding Prop Blades

And of course ... 6 x HTX 900 servos.

I will be using the HK NanoTech 2200ma 3s flight batteries. I think, from what I have thus far gleaned from this great gathering of minds, that the ESC, with a SBEC of 4A, I have chosen will handle the 6 servos. ALSO Looks like my motor of choice will run fairly cool with the 9.5x5 prop and pull the P2K fairly well.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Buddy Locator ... ???

Does any one know if there is a function on this site that will help you locate others in your area??? Would be nice to find another flyer locally. I visited a local flying club field and they were not to receptive to someone with a glider. Most of them were flying LARGE piston jobs and pattern ships. They were quite pricey to join also. $55 for AMA membership and $150 per year.

I had a lot of slop, for me it came from the Fuselage holes were a little too large, I ran a bead of CA around the edge a couple of times still it was slightly larger then #11'd it till the poles fit snug
Obviously may not be the same for everybody though.
