Well guys my Revolver 70 came today, (this was suppose to be a winter/income tax) build, and I am well on my way completion LOL. The aileron's came hinged already, I will leave them alone for now, but will add a little more CA to them. I also cut a piece of the inside out where the gas tank sits, and I put in a piece of 1/8" thick ply wood, 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" over where the landing gear is. I slathered it in 30 min epoxy. after everything dried up I drilled through the 4 holes, and installed the landing gear, hope this "reinforces" it enough. I also put a little epoxy on the motor stand off area to beef it up some. I am using 1/8" Robart hinges on the elevator, and rudder (rudder is done I installed 3, with 5 min epoxy, seems strong), also have 4-40 rods for all controls. Stock ones are awful flimsy.

Well it has been awhile, got my revolver built, put in JR servos, reinforced the landing gear, a some around the firewall. I used 4-40 rods. Mounted up my DLE-20 engine. Working on electrical connections, and plumbing it all up. I did have to elonggate one side of the motor mount holes but I got her all mounted. One question is I do not want a choke servo, how are you all making your choke accessable with the cowling on?
