Just goes to show that this model hasnt come about overnight.
It was back in Nov 2004 when Joe first started his first Dynamic 80". Apart from the 80" span the entire model has changed in every way.
Well done Joe. Champion job!

Congrats Joe things look great.

I must ask if you have made a part to clean up the lower part of the vertical fin or does it just get left open like in the pics.

Very nice job !!!

Watching the pictures, the tail opening is clearly visible, but thinking about the space fullfilled by the pitch servo a curiosity is growing : from where it's passing the allen key to tighten the 3 tail&fin fixing screws ??

The carbon tow stops at the LE of the wing. These fuses are very thick up front and should hold up to rock landings no problem. The entire nose of the model has zero carbon and I will be testing a 2.4ghz system in this model.

There is a tailcone just like the D160. The mold is being made now.

The tail is removeable. The front bolt is accessed by a small hole at the bottom of the fuse. The second bolt is accessed through the servo opening. It is positioned so that you can get to it while the servo is in place. Once you disconnect the control rod from the servo arm you can move the rod off to one side and get to the rear bolt through the opening at the rear of the fuse by removing the tailcone. All this will be detailed later in the build. Stay tuned.

Didnt get much finished yesterday. I spent the whole day drawing and machining the proper sized horns for the production run. Finally I got the correct size. I will use them in this model but until the actual production models arrive and I can check for clearance under the fairings I wont know for sure if these are the final sizes or not.

The wing control rods are exactly like the elevator but shorter. These are hardened steel rods much stiffer than a typical 4-40 threaded rod. The accessory kit will include all the links pre soldered to the correct length. You will just have to screw on the plastic ball link on the other end and hook it up. The kit will have aluminum arms to fit the Hitec servos reccommended for the model as well as the ball portion to screw into the servo arms.
