OOPS now we get the cold frond. I'm freezing over here. It's 60 degrees and dropping!

Seriously now comes the wind. Maybe Sunday.

Hope you guys get some of the flying utopia this winter has brought me. Never that cold but the mornings have been calm and pretty.

By the way, if you flip the servo for one of the flaps by cutting a new hole in the foam there should be no need to bend a special wire to connect the servo horn to the flap horn.

True, but then you have to cut a hole. Either is a little unsitely. The wire option is easy and less visible. An argument could be made that two holes in the wing could reduce the strength of the wing but I don't think it would be much. Culling a hole for some would be a bit of a pain.

The only issue with the bent wire would be that it can flex. I haven't had any issues with that at all.

Bottom line, the wire option leaves the wing integrity as designed but looks a little wierd.

The cutting option leaves a visible hole in the wing bet is done at no cost either.

Where would be the fun if we all did it the same way?

Do you have a soldering iron or access to one it is a very simple and easy way to reverse servos. It's not scary to do just a few wires inside the servo to swap around and you can reverse the servo use a y-harness and have no problems. And you dont have to cut up your wing.

On my plane I just used 2 seperate channels for my flaps. Keep in mind that its easily done with an Aurora 9 radio.

The set up is all stock w/ a 3s 2200 battery. The only additions are a stronger gear legs that are zip tied to the wire gear, and a radio df loop from the boats parts box. The color scheme comes from a Cessena O-1D bird dog. I used Osh spray can red over the foam, didn't spray the white sections at all, and brushed on the anti-glare panel. Decals came from the parts box (.40 size mostly), and the lettering is vynl press on from the craft store. It flies great . There's a park next to work that I go to most mornings. I still love flying fuel planes, but this is great to stick in the car and be ready to go .

Hey Mark,

I know it's been quite awhile since you posted, but I just saw your post and since I'm looking for a nice relaxing Winter project thought I might try to duplicate your great work.

What was the exact Red spray color you used? It looks great!

Thanks,

The foam you cut out goes in the hole you now have from flipping over the servo. Glue it in the hole and put tape over it.
