Simple hatch for battery
Hope this helps identifying which way is up!
Not sure if it's clear here but I attached a little alloy square to the ESC which runs through to the outside for cooling. It's just behind the hatch
The final elastic band setup. I haven't shown the front to back elastic bands but they go on first
Front and back dowels
A bit war torn but this has been "disasembled" in several crashes
to the left is the cutout for the elevator servo
another view from the filling end
complete assembly. Heatshrink visible to make the servo mechanism watertight
Trapdoor open through fuse
is glued in place, and the excess then cut off so it's flush with the fuse. Any take off from water that I don't want the tank to fill up, I'll just leave the trapdoor open. It will only partially fill and then empty once lifting (I hope)
Tube going through fuse at front. It goes through at a very shallow angle
Trapdoor closed. It's sealed with caulk, and the servo will be aided with a rubber band to keep it closed. May have to use a spring though.
Tube on top of tank, servo rod running through it to trapdoor at base.
Foam with tank opening marked for cutting
Trapdoor open in fuselage. Foam filler went around the gaps and under the tray
Tank set in foam with servo on top. Tube on right feeds water in and tell tale at the back will show when it's full as well as releasing air during the fill. This all was glued inside, and then expanding foam used underneath to glue and seal.
Trapdoor for tank. I glued the hinge to the tank then used a silicone type caulk (called Tech 7, it's way ahead of silicone) around it. I put washing up liquid on the tank door opening, closed the door reasonably tight, and when the tech 7 set, it release
180cc Fuel Tank. Hole in top for tube with servo rod running through to open door. I used heatshrink from this tube to the clevis(?) that attaches to the servo to water seal it.
Hole in fuse for water dump door (from inside). Green lines are GC and hinge point of trapdoor.
Fuel tank that I dumped - too heavy
