Dennis, I use Gorilla CA for my horns. That glue is far superior to regular CA. It's important to have a nice fit in order to get good strength. If the gap is too big then I would use at least 30 min epoxy with some cabosil or milled fiberglass.

Luv ya work

Thanks Joe, I've reading ur threads and I've learnt heaps on mouldy construction. I didn't know how to make wipers until now. Keep up the great work. You're a big inpiration to my building DSers, I've got a long way to catch up though.
There was another thing I'm not sure about how the thickness of the main wing spars are measured from root to tip?
Cheers Asto

Getting her ready for the big show. Ive been waiting for these servos for a while now. They are finally here. These things actually make the 7955tg's seem like toys. They are far superior. Even with a load they can find center and quiet down where the smaller counterparts sometimes need a wiggle to shut up. These are strong and seem up to the task.

Getting the rest of the stuff together. I added 10lbs of weight to each wingtip. I should be able to add about 15 to 20 lbs inside the fuse. I reinforced the fuse layup where the tongue plugs in and the wing holddown nut as well. I used a 3"x3"x1/8" steel plate with a grade 8 nut welded to the back. This is glued to the underside of the 1/2" plywood under the wing. Should be good to go.
