Pretty good shot of the slick.
Where did it go???
There it is.
Fiberglass cowl, paint-matched to the ultracote covering.
Interior shot of fuselage and battery tray.
Rear fuselage - this is how it comes out of the box.
Motor box - pre-installed, pre-drilled, blind nuts installed.
Rudder, as it comes out of the box, tiller keeper installed.
one-piece molded CF landing gear.
Bottom of fuse showing LG plate.
Detail of LG plate - Ply/fiberglass composite material - 2 layers. Very strong.
The SLICK hardware kit.
the SPARE parts included.
Install wheel onto axles, tighten collar screw w/ 1.5mm hex driver
Slide the axle and wheel into the pant.
Hold collar w/ needle nose, tighten axle nut.
Start wheel pant anti-rotation screw through hole in gear leg into pant, remove and cut in half...
Re-install cut screw into hole and tighten.
Install landing gear onto fuselage with 3mm short screws, tighten well.
Using med or thick CA, install balsa gear cover plate.
Cut slot for rudder horn through covering as shown
Install rudder onto fuse, and horn into rudder. Apply plenty of thin CA to the hinges and the horn (from both sides).
Install tailwheel onto fuse with QTY 2 wood screws as shown.
Tighen tiller block screw. Use Loctite.
Remove for wing spar tube, aileron servo wires, wing screws, and wing alignment pins.
Remove for motor/battery cooling flow.
Remove for horizontal stab and rudder pull-pull wires.
Insert Horiz. stab in the fuselage cutout. Measure to make sure it's centered left-to-right.
Install wings without ailerons, measure as shown from stab tip to wing tip, equalize to make sure the Hstab is straight.
Wick thin CA glue into the stab-to-fuselage joint on top. Let dry a few minutes.
Turn fuselage over and wick plenty of thin CA into the joint from the bottom. Clean up any overflow with debonder on a paper towel.
Find elevator half which has the joiner attached, slide onto Hstab. Apply tape as shown to hold in-place and drip thin CA glue onto the hinges.
Apply medium or thick CA into the slot in the elevator half which receives the joiner.
Slide elevator half onto Hstab and joiner, align, and drip thin CA onto hinges. Tape is holding other half of elevator perfectly straight so you can align this side.
Slightly open holes in DUB672 servo arm, insert adjusters.
Don't use any washers, thread on nuts (leave them just a bit loose so adjusters can rotate) apply Med CA glue to threads and add kicker.
Mount rudde servo as shown.
Install ball-links onto the pull-cable ends. This is not your adjustment, so use some CA glue on these threads.
Make the cable end as shown, crimp the brass tube with pliers (HARD!) and then apply a drop of thin CA glue to the crimped tube for safety.
Attach cable to rudder horn as shown (note the use of the safety washer on the 2mm attaching bolt)
Apply nut to the top, tighten, then apply Medium Ca glue as shown to lock the nut. Do the other side.
Put masking tape on the rudder as shown to hold it perfectly straight.
Assemble the 1st cable end as shown with the safety loop.
check the length, this is what you want.
Crimp HARD! then apply a drop of thin CA.
Insert 1st cable into adjuster and tighten with 1.5mm driver.
Repeat for 2nd cable, adjust them to be tight (no sag) but not springy.
Install the elevator horn as shown with Med or Thick CA.
AFTER the horn is installed, remove the covering over the elevator servo hole.
Attach extensiosn to elevator servo, feed into fuselage, pull to front.
Assemble elevator pushrod as shown, see text for notes.
Install servo with head facing rear of plane, install horn and pushrod as shown. USe CA to lock all 2mm nuts.
Mount your motor. Nuts are already installed in the firewall to fit Hacker/Torque (and I think Reaper). This is the NEW Torque 2812-720.
Use strips of paper taped to fuse for cowl pad locators.
Mount spinner backplate, prop, spinenr cone.
Use masking tape to hold cowl in perfect position.
Spin a pointed Xacto to make the holes in the cowl. Install wood screws.
These strong are inside the wings to help pull the aileron servo wires through.
Mount aileron servo as shown, trim a liitle from the wing sheeting if necessary.
I'm using the longest arms in the DUB672 package, modified as shown on right.
Assemble aileron pushrods just as you did the elevator pushrods. To get the pushrod length exact, you can trim a little off of the threaded ends if needed. I had to snip about 1/16" from one end to get it exactly as I wanted.
89" Slick and the 51" Slick
From a little different angle.
