Senior Telemaster Build Thread

Hello, I am just starting to put together a Senior Telemaster for use as a Tow Plane for Large Scale Gliders.

Here is what I have so far:

1. Senior Telemaster with covering removd so I can recover in my own color scheme (Orange and Midnight Blue Ultracote)

2. Scorpion 5535 Outrunner Electric Motor & 12 cell 130 amp ESC

3. A truckload of JR Hi Torque servos.

4. Ben Diss tow release

5. 6 inch Dubro wheels

6 giant scale tailwheel from hobby lobby

7. 10 ch XPS RX


I am going to install flaps to facilitate rapid descents in landing between tows.

Here are a couple pics of of cutting out Trailing edge to allow larger Flaps and Ailerons. The Root of wing at Trailing edge will be 4" from center. My thought is to have aileroms and flaps of equal size... about 21 " each.

* Just a note... I do not get alot of time to build, so it might take several months to complete this project....

I also have built the 12ft Telemaster and the build slide show is on You-Tube under my account "YumaMike". I have it setup with a 50cc Engine and the Electric Motor system.

Batteries and Charger have arrived

I received the 4 Batteries and Charger today. I was a little concerned regarding size of batteries and the space they have to fit into..... But, all should fit well with space around them. Here are pics of the batteries.. My Credit card is still "Smoking" from this purchase. I have everything but the Landing gear so the plastic can "cool" off!

I hope to get some work done at least one day this week. It is Holiday season, so I won't get a lot done!

I got an hour tonight to get some work done... Here are the Servo trays for the Ailerons. Made from 1\8" ply. I plan to get up early on Thursday and spend at least 4 hours before I have to do the "Turkey Day" stuff.
