Did you design it that way?
Hi Andy - this is only the second one out of the moulds so I have to aplogise.

Ballus Uppicus pure and simple.

Major red face mate!

Not easy mate unfortunately - funny angle and all that.

James will I've no doubt ensure that future holes are indeed 'lower'.

Some thoughts?
Well, it is built to a very high standard and the surface finish is very hard.
I could never say that about the luna.
Oh and it will need 10mm servos in the skinny wings.

I saw it done.

Once.

Briefly.

No Phil - it aint. Its not undercambered either though. So no pitch down moment - not retro - its proto

Cheers,

He is now in the epoxy storage dungeon with an uncertain future, flayed to within 25.4mm of his life.

Further punishments may include 2 weeks of cutting kevlar...With his teeth.

Oh aye Jim. It's no probs for me. The rudder pushrod slips nicely backwards and will exit it's new hole when I've deceided where it should be. The elevator pushrod will receive a nice slot and all will be well. It only need's maybe an 1/8th if that.
I trust the third will be 'different'......

Hi Andy - when the fitting guy is released from his chains the next ones will not have this problem.

You know - I still use a vernier gauge that I made myself when I was at school. Still accurate as hell - and imperial. Would not part with it for the world.

Cheers,

James.
