P-3 Orion (Pat's 84" Plans)

So I started this project a little after Brian Allen http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1807910
She's lookin like a P-3 now though.

I'm not gonna post an entire build log because it'll mostly be the same as his, but I am gonna modify the plans a bit to incorporate fowler flaps, a bomb bay, and (hopefully) a working sonobuoy launcher. That stuff will come later.

The first mod I've done is eliminate the need for two pushrods to the elevator. I mimicked the actual setup and I'll now have one (slightly larger in diameter) pushrod.
