Long time, no progress. Summer is ending and I get back to building very slowly. Managed to heat form my first acceptable canopy from my balsa plug. Before that I tryed to use shrinking plastic bottles but these are no good for so big canopy. There were traces of bottleīs structure and plastic shrinked unevenly etc. So I found a piece of heat forming plastic from my office architectural model building shop. This worked well. Other observation I made, that my plug was too soft balsa, and after every pull I had to do little repairing. But Iīm not gonna produce these things, so itīs okay.

Hi, build is on very slow mode right now. Just had a little baby in my family and lots of time goes for him.

Hi
I think Iīm warming up my build again. I have the plug in condition to start making the servo tray and place pushrods etc. But I have to buy servos first and thought that maybe somebody can suggest me servos. Or what type and strength servos I should use on that size plane.
