Not what I expected! There is a 4mm gap in one side and at least a 2mm on the other!!!
Any suggestion on how to fix this?
If anybody has further instructions or a link to them I would love to know what all those reference numbers mean.. Or should I play it by ear using the TLAR method?
You can just see the uncovered twin servos for the elevators. I used Deans micro plugs/sockets for linking them up.
Lower rudder hinging detail, showing lower pin taped in place.
Lower rudder hinge piece from below.
Lower rudder hinge. Note how off-set it is (to match factory-drilled hole in rudder).
Upper and lower rudder hinge pins (not supplied in kit).
Ballast box: takes two brass plates. TBH I don't use it much, the plane flies very well in strong stuff.
Flap linkage. You can see how much wing trailing edge I needed to cut away to get decent down travel on flaps fro crow. Tape gap covers work well, wind keeps them pressed down.
Top of rudder showing top hinge pin.
Final rudder linkage after I screwed up the pull-pull geometry...
This is what I ended up with
one side round, the other not so ??? The funny thing is that the provided pushrod in the fuse is on the round side (in case somebody think that the flatness is to accomodate the horn) Or should the horn go crossed to the opposite side?
Nothing special just one of the flap linkage with off center diff.
And dive brakes setup (same as most of the folks that put one of this together).
This approach looks appealing but...
electronics lay out with rudder servo. It still needs battery tray and batts in the front.
That "T" mark shows the side of the joiner with the bend so you put it on the right wing and the bent towards the rear
