Phillipe,
Still waiting for your tip on how you slice/cut your depron pieces.

In my country I can only find what they call polyfoam and they are all in 5mm thickness.

Thanks.

Do you think the second method will save any weight.

Thanks.
No problem with this monoblock elevator. Just beware of tunning.

Phillipe,
What do you mean by 'beware of tunning'?

I just mean that you'll have to tune and check elevator incidence and pitch angles carefully.

Take-off was very realistic because she needed a very long run before nose was up (i guess you'll not have this problem because of thrust with feigao power). I said she flew like a glider because she was able to glide and to climb up in ascending drafts with cut off motors (same thing with my A 340)...

(short) Update: 16.01.2006.
Hi guys,
between all the movingboxes I found a working solution for the main LG hatches. It is a pull-pull solution in the way "Fantastic models" uses for there aileronlinkage.
