Servo mounting blocks.

I have glued in pine servo mounting blocks front and back of the servo position. These also bridge the top and bottom skins, so provide a bit of support for them in a vulnerable area.
The servos will be slid in between these blocks and then hot glued to the blocks. For subsequent removal if necessary, a piece of wire is heated and used to melt the hot glue.
I just need to monitor just how soft the hot glue becomes in when the plane is in the hot summer sun!
This is another reason for painting composite planes light colours. Apart from the HTD (high temperature distortion) concern.
