what's up with that, I've read many times about people having to tape horz. stab. I have about 95 flights on my T-28D still looks good (but i went ahead & ordered a back-up)

Hello all!!! I am fairly new to flying(4 months or so)! I learned on a PZ T-28 and I am now building my second. I had originally bought a spare wing,fuselage,horizontal wing and cowl in the expectation that I would need spare parts and ended up not having to use them so I bought everything else I need to build me another one with a little hotter set-up. My question is(and I have done some searching in the 1721 pages of this thread with no luck!LOL) what do I use to mount these servo's?Epoxy? Thanx for any help in advance!!!

Piggybacking

I did a little searching myself but came up empty - would like a tutorial on how to replace the aileron servos.

Easy as pulling them off.... The sucket should be tight enough.... Put back the original white tape and on top of it put reallu good clear tape... Easy as that... Its really tight after that

I glued my servo's in with hot glue so I could pull them out if I need to.

I'm just used to trucks,cars and boats where everything is screwed in tight and this is my first time with foam. I guess I might be making it harder than it is.....

Went flying yesterday....er crashing yesterday I guess I could say. Took the nose off, broke the cowl, motor mount, cracked the wing in 2 places, cracked the horizonal stab, split the fuse ect... ect.... I lost one of the pushrods for one of the ailerons until I found out how hard they are to get, couldnt find it on horizon website for some reason, read somewhere you got to call them directly and ask for it, so today at lunch I drove back to the field and walked around until I found it.

Looks like I got my work cut out for me over the next few days trying to fix it. I'm going to try to make it air worthy again before I buy a new fuse. Hopefully I can, I just wish the nose would have broken off a little cleaner than it did.

Packing tape does not hold up over time and yellows and is not very flexible. Try using Blenderm tape for this. The surgical stuff.

Jimbo - Use bathroom silicone adhesive so you can get them back out if you ever have to. Hotglue second best.

Campbell - Use your favorite glue to put back on your nose. I always stabbed in some toothpicks from different directions along the break for added strength.

thanks for the blenderm tape tip guys. my wife had a role and just reinforced my elevator. i do not want to loose that control surface for sure. makes me feel better its beefed up now. i got about 80 flights before she broke. not too bad i guess. kinda wet here now, but looking forward to the first flight with the new 2 blade prop. curious as to how it will sound compared to the 3 blade. should be fun.excited to hit triple digits with this girl. thats flights recorded.she has been nothing but a pure joy to fly. happy flying, walt

Before the sock, I had two older batteries to immediately hit low voltage when I gave lots of throttle for takeoff and the second one when I gave it throttle for a vertical aerobatic climb. Both batteries hit LVC in the first seconds of flight. No more problems after using a small kid's thin sock.
That is a great idea indeed. Although, I have to admit, I think I am just a weeny, it was only 56F outside. In my defense it was high 80's last week, so I think I am just used to the warmer weather

Looking forward to going flying again this upcoming weekend, weather permitting of course. New motor and esc really make this plane scoot. I think I may try the stock prop and see how much more speed it adds.
