Ford Flivver -bottom hatch


The original Ford Flivver 268 hanging in the Ford Museum at Dearborn, Mich., has a rear hatch on the right side below the stabilizer. That doesn’t work on the RC model.

To access the tail servo, I chose to build a hatch in the bottom. I should of done one on the wings. When I put Monokote on the 1/16” balsa, it pulled up when the Monokote heated and shrank. However, I kept going and rigged it so that the wind would help keep the trap door shut. A brass piece that I made from an AC plug worked just right.

Almost finished with this build.
