Hello Gents,

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

BR
Reinhard

Well after what seemed like forever...the weather is finally coming around!!! Reinhard can you please post an exact link for the 6300mah batteries that you use in your jet? I can still use my gens ace 5300 but I would like some extra headroom.

Pete, I'm looking forward to your flight report! How far away do you think you are from the maiden?

Thanks!!

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