Yes, he first glued the servos then used the servo mounting screws. Now in my case it was alsmost the same, but I used some servo mounting hardware I bought from Tam at Tamjets.com a while back. I can take out the servo and replace them if I have a problem. I just takes a while to put the screws in there by FEEL only since your hand has to be inside the fuselage.

Not sure of the term "potted", on your servo mounting, do you mean the servos are wrapped on masking tape and epoxied to base as well as scewed?
Thanks

Just an idea .......

On my F5D models, because of thier tiny fuselage cross section behind the wing saddle where the elevator servo goes, I also screw the servo to a plywood plate.

The servo/plate is then inserted back into the fuse with the linkage already installed. I then use a few screws run through holes on the bottom of the fuse to mount said servo plate.

This allows easy servo replacement, adjustment if need be, and a solid mounting.

Finally Done!


Alright!
Just one last little touch and she's ready to rock! Of course it's the one part I don't have any left of and all hobby shops are closed for today...

Oh well, don't even know when I'm going to have time to maiden her yet anyways!

Have your dad bring it with him to the field on Saturday, I am very busy, but will maiden it for you and report back with handling characteristics. It's the least I can do.

Got mine in today, started with replacing the wing mounts with plates spanning the width of the fuse. Stab mounts will get attention after I get the servo and pushrod location sorted. Working on the wing servos, getting HS-65hb's to fit flush. I really don't want to pot them, but coming up with a viable mounting solution is going to take a beer or two.

I got mine a week or so ago and really haven't had time to look at it, well look at it that close. Have I missed something, I don't understand, is the wing mounts not good?

They are blind nuts fitted to 1/2" round plywood dots. There is no load bearing area at all. It's actually an easy fix, the plywood pops right off the fuse. Just a bit of fitting of the new plates. I used 1/16" as a base and then a 1/8" plate with the blind nut attached to the base. Spreads everything out nicely. I'll put the pics up in the morning when I get home.

That makes sense, thanks for the heads up. I've got to get a couple little projects off the bench.

I think I need another bench! 16' of bench just ain't enough!

Someone in here is using 82's all the way around, and IIRC the 82 and 85 aren't much different from each other.
