The hinges have dried and I tested the aileron, all is good. I had to do a little tweaking to get it to move freely. But I think we got it



The aileron is held with three #72 button head stainless steel screws. I thread them into the G10 and will put a nut on it at final setup.



Once I get the entire wing done and before I do the final glassing I will go over the aileron 0one last time to see if there is anything I can do to improve it.



The gap looks good and I will be very curious to see how they perform. My Mobius cam will be mounted to one of the servo hatches for testing and I will point it at the aileron to look for flutter or anything ells of interest.



Feels good to get this done.



The horn is in and linkage attached.



Checking the ailerons off the list. I am starting to feel like I am in full stride now, been putting in 10hr days on this baby.


Post video.

OMG! I cant believe the detail of this build! You should be hired by top RC/Model Plane companies to Design /QA their warbird line ups.
Thanks for sharing!

You got that right Mike! TB is quite the builder and something else on details! Watching one of his builds is like getting a degree in R/C building!

What kind of spackling/filler do you use? Where can I find some and about how much? As for finishing I have primed and sanded my fuse once how many times would you recomend doing that. If you have a chance to look I would appreciate it here is my link.....http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...993247&page=42

flyguy, I use Evercote easy sand, you can get it on amazon for around $40, great stuff. I don't use spackle anymore. I also prefer to do my filling after I put the glass cloth on.

Hope this helps.

Tony,

Can you give me your method starting from your bare wood?

For example I started with my fuse because I am preparing to glass it. So far I have filled areas and then primed and sanded. Should I prime and sand again or should I clean up the surface and go ahead and fiberglass?

Sorry for all my questions this is just my first build.

Thanks again.

Fly guy, on the fuselage I don't do much sanding before glassing, I just knock down the big stuff. I only use spackle to fill in holes. Then I glass. I do any filling and leveling with evercoat easy sand and light weight bondo. Then I sand and sand and sand.

Instead of adding your advertisement for your new business or the one you are plugging on every airplane thread, why don't you just create your own listing under airplanes for sale, or vendor forum?

Dude, your kidding......right! You have got to be the worst business man, all your doing is shooting yourself in the foot. If you think anyone is going to buy your kits with the BS methods your using here, on RCU and who knows where ells. Get lost and don't post your BS on my build diary, yes my build diary jerk.
