thanks Rich, I believe it is a 1/5th scale as well. usually the trike wings are bigger than the standard HG as it has more to lift.

I-Pad Bill here:
I rather like the set up from Nightman 12 but I think the postage to NY, USA would be more than the cost of the hole kit!
What do you think Nightman??

Gentlemen
T'was a good days flying as I have finally got most of the bug's out of this machine.I had four full flights in a pretty strong wind that this model seemed to handle well.
Thankst to Mark for all his advise and thanks to Scotty {Paradude} for having the sail cloth when I needed it.
Happy Landings

if I get any extras with mine I'll message you with them Rich.
interesting that there seems to be 4 servo's in there. thats got me puzzled.

Ritchie

PS. also noticed in the last drawing that piece thats marked in blue. when this is mounted around the cog on the boom be careful not to tighten this to much so as it grabs the boom, it should swing freely left to right and front to back. this could cause the problem in the video where it banked to the left.

Ritchie,
The way I read it regarding the servos is throttle, front wheel, roll and pitch.
It is all a bit confusing but to me it looks like there is a nylon string that round from one side of the wing to the other hooked up to a servo arm. The pitch is the same but from the front of the wing to the rear, but I could be wrong.

When the wing is fully rigged it is in perfect balance where it is mounted to the mast and I mean perfect equilibrium! its clever.

When is yours due?

Regards

Rich

Hey Bro.....This is all Marks design...All the info is in this thread....and what is'an tMark helped me with.......I thought that you were up with this one...
Rich............Thanks for the info

Mark......yes as you see it does fly well. The topless ,is simply because I was belting the crap out of it ,so in the end I just simply removed the top assembly. It may go back on but it sure is a lot easier to handle now.
I have also removed the springs as I believe that the ones I was using were to light and it got to "bouncy" on the sticks {but I have stronger ones that may go on.}
But I think that my bigest problem all along was the fact that my servo arms were not long enough,and so I had very little control.The arms are now 40mm long.The wing tip movement now from top to bottom is now 23".before this it was only about12",so it just about drags on the ground at full deflection.
When I was flying yesteday ,I got into some lift and it went up like a rocket {bit scary} and I had to spin it down or I may have lost it.
The model is very "loose" as I believe it should be,but this does mean that the stick input has a bit of a delay berore the model responds......{ Is that correct ?? }
I hope to get a few more flights in the next couple of days ,just to get comfortable ,before fitting my pilot.and then I shall try for those in flight video's of the pilot at work...
Happy Landings
Chris............

I have been studing those plans with great interest......very interesting......looks like the roll servo must have pretty long arm to do it's job. ...I'm sure it will work { ?? } just joking.
Unfortunately the plans came out a bit blury so I could not pick up any dimensions.I know you said it is 1/4 scale ,but what is the span ? and the wheelbase ?
