It is DO or DIE time. I have off and on been trying to restore this for over a year.
The elevators are balanced on the shafts to take mass loads from the servo.
the primary controls are set up as ELEVONS and the ailerons are slaved to help.
I used a power distribution system to help with the long leads and keep the system up to date . using a 2 cell lipo to power it .
it is still with out gear doors, and just put primer on the parts to make it all grey and not multicolored.

will try to prefire the motors before hitting the field SAT/Sun....
