Just to clarify M4x7 means 4mm diameter and 7mm lenght not pitch.
The pitch is specified by the term M4(standart metric thread).
Only if the pitch differs from the standart for the threads diameter a third number is given but will be placed between the diameter and the length.
i.e. M4x0.25x25 is a screw with 4mm diameter 25mm length and a pitch of 0.25mm!

A 4mm screw with a pitch of 7 would look pretty funny.

The bolt I was referring to is an M4 X.7 and the .7 is indeed the pitch. I goofed and forgot the decimal point.
Really glad you posted on this thread just to point out my mistake.

I just hate false information.
And if someone where to look for such a bolt no one is the wiser because it just doesn´t exist.
By the way even a .7 pitch bolt would be a pretty generic part and you still don´t know how long it is.
I´m sorry if I have offended you but I work as a metalworker in the metric sytem every day so
I saw a piece of incorrect information and corrected it according to my knowledge.

its no big deal, i went to the hobby shop & picked up a 4mm screw the next day, so it was a big help. otherwise id've bought 2-3 differnet sizes just to be sure. they fit like a glove. havent been able to work on this bird for the last couple days & its been killing me. its so pretty, i dont want to cut into the bottom of the wing to install the retracts. even though its going to be covered up. i hope everyone has a great turkey day & thanks

ive been trying to figure out how im going to hold the gear doors open during take-offs. i had problems with my p-47 doors getting blown around by the props and they would jam. i plan to have them held closed with tension wire, or string. im also trying to figure out weather to go with split doors or a single door. id like to find the most simple & lightweight design possible. i dont have a lot of gear door experience. any ideas?or links?

You might wanna try and make spring hinges. . .I.E hinges that always want to stay open & you run a rubberband accross the gear doors under the retract & when the gears retact up they pull the rubberband & close the doors. . .. I'm using this technique on my two DC-9's. . . . .go check'em out.

i got a bit more tinkering done today. not having the motors is really halting my progress. i need those before i can figure a lot of other things out. How do most people secure a servo in wings like this? and whats the best glue to use with balsa? wood glue? i plan to glue in some small square pieces of wood, and kinda build a box around the servos. it seems as though this plane was made with the idea of installing retracts. my retracts will fit perfectly in those squares with 1mm of clearance on either side. and the manufactor has already partially cut some squares out, where the strut would fold up. im going to have to move the retracts back a bit though, so they'll fit inside the nacelles. my 70esc's are too big to fit inside the motor mount structure. so, ill either have to get some smaller ones, or, install them inside the feuselage. what do yall think?

Here's a link to the building instructions, for what they are worth.

As far as mounting the servos, I figured a picture works better than trying to explain it. The four small hardwood blocks for the servo mount should be included in the kit. Just make sure to drill a pilot hole for the screws to prevent splitting the wood.

thanks for showing the pics. they are surely better than words. i was planning to mount them down in the wing. but i like that method much better. makes sense. also, what glue is best to use? wood glue?
