Looks good. I've got some goop-hinges drying as we speak on my DLG's ailerons. How long did you wait for the hinge to cure? 24hrs? 48hrs?

Today with the rain Jeret, wait a long time before touching them. If you can put a small fan/heater near them is should help speed it up. Main thing is to not agitate them AT ALL for at least 15 or so hours. After 24 hours you can wipe a tolulene soaked paper towel down the top/bottom of the joint and clean it up..

Well????


More progress...

Wing root gap filler deal glued in, sanded smooth, and middle joiners finished ready for paint.. The wing will have a white stripe down the middle so the colored filler will be covered.


Going to watch some movie with my wife, don't know the name, as all I care about is Jessica Alba is in it...

Fuse prep afterward..

It's hard to believe I'll ever want to do taped hinges again.

Looking schaweet! Did you not use the little servo grommits and screws that come with them? That should provide a tight fit, right?

Thanks Jon..

Well, I didn't use the grommets and screws for two reasons... First, they won't work, as the wood is cleared for the servo where the screw would go. I had to put the screws in at a slight angle and pushed out so I could screw into some "meat"... Second, I wouldn't have used them anyway. I plan to DS this thing and I don't want ANY servo movement AT ALL. The little rubber grommet deals are too loose IMO for this application...

Servo grommets are used in high vibration applications like nitro trucks, gas planes, etc. No need in a glider.

I've been hot gluing in my servos for quite some time now. After the glue sufficiently cools, its a solid as a rock.

Goop works too! Amazing stuff! (I want an Amazing Goop T-Shirt)

Jeret, I'd loose the hot glue on builds unless you don't have time for goop to dry(thick bead). Goop is FAR superior and the part won't "pop off" like it can with hot glue. Goop is some gnarly stuff and as far as I can tell the only two REAL drawbacks are weight, and the time it takes for a thick bead to dry. Get it over 1/8" thick and it could take a few days to get totally solid. But it IS STUCK!!

Some paint is drying on th wing as I type...... wooooo hooooo!! Picking up some clear laquer to spray on as a top/sealer/gloss coat...

I agree with Don. Hot glue doesn't stick nearly as well as Goop. Goop is tenacious whereas hot glue bonds weakly and is temperature dependent.

i saw one the other day for the first time... pretty cool!.. HEAVY but that shouldnt be a problem around here...

my only gripe on it is the fuse.. the nose is hideous looks like an ancient viking ship hahaha... but it will get the job done, and it feels beefy...

Cant wait to see one fly in person
