Many thanks, Carlos!

I'll use on my WR737 #2 build..I also will use on my C130 Globemaster from Tian Sheng Model for it's flap modification.

Please be sure and post some photos on your method of flap cutting.

Best Regards,

-Gary

Hello again Gary

If you'll post some pictures later cutting the flaps, I tell him that it was with a 45 angle so that the hinges go into the actual plane wing simulating

Hi all
Here some pictures of cutting the flap, there is two carbon rods to reinforce each half wing.
The radio to be used is a 10 Airtronic CH, and perform mixture elevator servo inverter without servos, so slow as to taste the speed of the servo flaps.
We will continue working tomorrow
regards

First attempts in vinyling. Not perfect, but promising. I have to be more careful, the material gets dented very easily and you don't notice it, but under the vinyl it really shows.

Nice cuts Carlos. You may want to round the upper part of the cut-off part to an airfoil shape. Somebody wrote about that earlier.

the big question is now when your tail sits in the sun will the foam
under bubble up causeing problems with your nice work?

white seems to do better - dark colors get hotter and bubble

Develop my building here, accept advice or opinions of all to carry a good quality of finish and the 737 flight.
I was thinking of putting these hinges for the flaps, which have reviews?

These flap hinges will work, but will not create the proper flap movement, because the hinge point needs to far below the flap itself. Those hinges will create a hinge point immediately below the undersurface of the wing, as opposed to about 1.5cm below where it needs to be.

I personally believe Dubro Razor Control horns are perfect, lightweight and are largely covered by the canoe fairings.

Very nice job- just add the leading edge silver and you're there.

+1..on the DuBro. However this other hinge from HK will likely do the job nearly as well. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idproduct=9213

On the Lufthansa jets only the tail is dark blue, the rest of the plane is white. Since the tail is vertical it's not directly exposed to the sun. I only can hope it will not bubble. This is my original: http://www.flugzeug-bild.de/name/ein...Lufthansa.html

Doug: the silver leading edge is there. I might have cut it slightly too narrow (1cm wide) so it doesn't show well on the side view. If you look very closely you can notice the silver line at the leading edge.

LOL nice color scheme.
Saw in the newspaper today that Qantas are starting an advertising campaign
where people can have their names painted on a A380 or Domestic 737.
they are looking for 700 names.I'm guessing 350 names each plane.
Wonder how Callie would go with that request for decals...

Wedegtail FLIES!!!

I am pleased to report a successful maiden of my heavily modified Windrider 737- the RAAF AEWCS "Wedgetail" this evening at dusk. Two flawless flights, and only minor trim required typical of any maiden. Photos and videos to follow in the next 24 hours upon download.

I have to admit, the difference between this and my Alaska 737 was minimal- other than it flies very true when straight and level- likley a result of the large antennas and ventral fins.
