Wiring for motors are SERIES/PARALLEL.

Had to edit the first pic for when I tried it, it didn't work!

Here is the new pic. Can you tell the difference? I had to get the plan for the Mars to refresh my memory on how everything gets wired. That's a lot of wires to arrange!

Perry,

Your progress is inspiring and your work is top notch. Thanks for all of the pics. Our flaps look almost identical in design and I may opt to do a similar Robart solution like you've posted.

Glad you're obviously gaining mobility back in your wrist/hand and its great to follow your progress

Is that 14 g wire for the motors?? My wiring schematic will be the same as yours just add another of those diagrams to the mix What size battery will you be using?

Mike

Hey Mike,

Thanks. Yes. It is 14g from SR Batteries. Nice stuff. Battery size....um....probably a 6s. Don't know yet but I'll post it when I figure it out.

Sluf,
Glad you like it!
Thanks mate.

Perry,

Those softbores are nice. I have a set myself - well worth the money.

The beverly is coming along quite nicely, despite your handicap!

Cheers,
Steve

Perry,

Glad your arm is getting better. Wonderful progress! I'll be sure to keep your tips about mount alignment fresh in my memory...

Since there's 4 deg "down" in relationship to the wing and the wing is set with 4 deg incidence "up", that would make the thrust line at 0 deg. Just a notation...

I had noticed the wonderfully nice lightening holes you're adding and kinda wondered how you did them. Mine would have come out somewhat like the old "die-crushed" Comet kits of the 70's. Where can one obtain a set of these softbores?

John

That's the place!

Thanks John for the info regarding the incidence.

I have lots of Doculam so I thought I would use this along with latex house paint.

Motors up and running!
I'll fit the gearboxes and run all servos, then close her up.

Fuselage next!

Looking good Perry. Are you using the same method on the Bev's nacelles as you did on the Mars, that is, shaped foam?

John

Edit - Oh and I feel a bit like "Mr. Obvious" after looking at my plans where it says 0 deg on the thrust line....

John,
No. I think I'll go back to old school and go with the plank on frame. The foam was easy to form and work with, but it has some shortcomings that make it a bad choice.

How you coming along??

What are the shortcomings of using foam? I was hoping to avoid the planking marathon...

Update should happen on my thread shortly btw.

Well John,
First of all it dents easily. Then when you fiberglass it and paint it, be very careful which paints to use for if you even have the tiniest of pin holes in the fiberglass, it will leach into the foam and melt it away leaving a nice void under the fiberglass which will bubble if the model is left in the hot sun for a very short period of time.

Don't ask me how I know. IMO, it's not worth the aggrivation.

Perry
