Hey Dan,

No i just did both sets as elevons. I wanted to have some thrust vectoring with a control surface in the prop stream. It works good.

Dave, I never was a big fan of the Marauder i have thought about doing the Hawk ship though. Future stuff for sure. This season if i have time for building i am going to finish up the ones i started last year. Enterprise-A, Firefly Serenity, Klingon D7, and X-Wing.

I did it very simply. Set up as Elevon mix and put a servo splitter on each side. The servos on opposite sides of the vertical mean they move opposite to move the control surfaces the same.

Looks great Russ! I have tons of designs that get little attention. Really nice to see someone else loves the Buck Starfighter like I do!

Tht viper will be first. I saw the bettlestar plans and thought it would be cool then the viper caught my attention. This is shaping up to be the summer of spacecraft for me. I did a star trek voyager a couple months ago. When I get a video I will post it in the voyager thread.

Bucks starfighter servo setup?


I have decided to build Buck's star fighter as i have just downloaded the plans. I think this will be really cool to fly as I use to be a fan of the show.
I noticed there there are 4 servos. One fore each control surface I guess. Are all 4 servos mixed together as elevons? or are the inner 2 just elevators and the outer 2 ailerons ?
Thank you
Paul

Nevermind, found the answers I was looking for in previous posts in this blog.

After a nearly 3 yr lul in activity,
it will be nice to ressurrect exciting design again.

SGtalon has recently given me permission to start offering his designs.
The Buck rogerStarship is the 8th in the series.
Family business and uptiks in th eeconomy have made it impossible for SGTalon
to continue to support the designs. Additionally his kit cutter has
become so busy at his profession that he can no longer do cuttings.

I have simply taken his design files and developed my own CNC cutting scheme
which works for my standarad boxing and use of MPF - Model Plane Foam.

All building information and details should be here in this forum.
disclaimer: I have not personally built or flown this design.

I provide the CNC cut Foam parts only plus a set of Plywood control horns.
See pic for my current layout.

Kits can be ordered on my site ...
https://www.Hoosiercutoutservice.com

I've been doing CNC cutting services continuously since 2005.
