the first thing was a good 3 View Drawing of the D82 Tiger of witch i had all of my old drawing info most of it came from my old David Bonnington drawings and pilot press detailed drawings of the D H 82 we have gone for working wing rigging so we can throw it around a bit and it has scale working ruder and elevator controls or you can just fit servos to the back with short control arms.

so after lots of...Continue Reading
