Sky Surfer Easy Servo Wire & Wing Assembly and Dis-Assembly

Easy Wing and Servo Wire Mod for Sky Surfers

My son and I watched in awe when Sky Surfer glide and fly like gentle eagle in the sky at the flying filed one day so I decided to get one as well.

Well it's a big plane! yeah, and transporting it eats up a lot of space in the wagon. I didn't like disassembling the plane every now and then as it causes parts to loosen up in every assembly and dis-assembly, and the most troublesome task is to reach in for the servo wires and disconnect the extension wire from the receiver, it just messes up a great wiring arrangement

So here is what I had in mind.Since I hated removing the servo extension wires from the receiver and all that, I decided to have it fixed at an accessible location.

I cut off a few parts of the foam in the fuselage where the wings join together, just the same size of the extension plugs. I used double-sided adhesive tape to mount it, plus taped over to for added secrity. This exposes the connector under the wings for easy access.

Next up are the aileron servo wires. This in turn has to be exposed so that it can be connected or disconnected from the extension plug. This is how it looks on the underside of the wing joints. The servo wires pass thru a small slot that leaves it inside the fuselage.

To accommodate the wires and expose it under the wing, I cut a narrow length of foam just as wide as the servo wires. Moved back the servo wire into the slot and secure it with hot-glue or sticky tape.

Now to complete the mod, we may now install the wing halves into the fuselage. See that the servo wire is now exposed.

Now connect the servo wires.

Now assembly and dis-assembly only takes you half a minute!
