AD-1 Spad


Here are the dive brakes completed. Works fantastic. Slows the plane down without any bad tendencies.

Here is the plane using the barn door flaps for the first time.[Used the slider to control the flaps, but it was very awkward feeling so I didn't use them much. Once I get them on a switch it should prove easier to use. The plane didn't exhibit any bad tendencies when deployed and did slow down.

I modified my radio to activate the flaps on a push button switch instead of a toggle. The toggle was very awkward. Now my index finger can rest lazily on top of the switch so I can activate it at will.

One thing I need to point out if you intend to make these is that the servo horn must end up 90 degrees in relation to the servo to get even deployment of the flaps.
