a bit quiet here
i have done some upgrades on my F18.
First i got a set of new wings with ailerons but still no flaps, didnīt need them.
Carl wrote in RCJI there only fits the Spectrum slim wing servos,
well, i must say itīs not the only servo that fits. I installed standard 13 mm miniservos that i have had here. I shrinked it with shrinktube to safe the servo itself and glued it in the existing servo cutouts with silicone and make also a small fillet with epoxy on the upper side. If something gets damaged i just cut the tube and can remove the servo.
Second i installed 2 red lights in the fins.
I flew the F18 4 times in this configuration and must say i like it a bit more then the standard taileron setup.
Here is a Video from todays flight, 23.02.2014/ 8° celsius

I'm hoping for the maiden to be as soon as the ground is dried up. It's sooner than later now though!
