My homemade 12x1950 Sanyo faup pack...this configuration was used to keep the battery tray short, although not required.
I added additional graphics made from an Ultratrim sheet.
The base coat sprayed and drying.
Tail fully mounted and ready to cover.
Elevator joiner installed.
We cut the stab opening in the fuse and trial fitted the stab, measuring to ensure proper alignment.
We installed the motor bulkhead with the mounting holes vertically aligned. It was important to carefully check alignment.
Installing the 3mm balsa servo/receiver mount under the cockpit.
We cut an air exit hole in the lower fuse behind the wing saddle.
The wing hold down plate installed.
The fuselage was not predrilled for the wing dowel.
Linkage in place.
The control horn position was set from the servo arm position.
Fiberglass tape secured the center joint, and we're ready for covering.
Sanded to shape, and ready to be joined.
We've cut out the ailerons, glued on the aileron leading edge and cut outs, as well as the wing's leading edge balsa and CNC cut wing tips.
The complete kit contents!
The spitfire sports the supplied roundels.
HS55 mounted behind nose gear.
Wire was formed and secured to a lite ply plate. Then secured to the fuse with silicone and screws.
Fan installed in the fuse.
Mylar outlet taped to fan assembly
I mounted the controller behind the motor for better cooling. Another aid in cooling is to cut away the shrink that covers the controllerís heat sink.
I used a cooling trick here. We can gain some motor cooling by taking off some material from the motor tube.
I made a jig with a 110-degree angle. Using the jig made this a 10-minute assembly.
Foam blocks keep the wing panels aligned while the epoxy/micro balloon mix sets up.
Drill some holes in the fuse and wing root for the epoxy to bond.
Servo assemblies mounted with silicone.
Servos secured to the ply plates.
I used Dubro ball links on the servo side.
Glue with epoxy and micro balloons.
Checking the fit.
Taileron linkages in place.
The kit box was shipped with a heavy duty outer box. The contents were very well packaged with no loose parts rolling around! A 5 page instruction manual with photos is included.
