James, Could you share the water rudder setup I see on some of the planes in the pics? Im going to set up my SSX Trainer on floats for spring and if I like it as much as I think i will Im just going to leave it as a float plane.

Thanks
Mount the rudder on the tail end of one float. Run a flexible push rod from the rudder servo to the water rudder. The water rudder is from Ernst. I am sure I have the details in this thread somewhere. The push rod housing should be secured at both ends. Be sure to grease-up the push rod so it operates smoothly and does not rust.

The new kit looks awesome!

Have you ever considered making the SSX/Trainer wing with stick mounts to put twin motors on it?

I have the Radical RC wing motor mounts, that make the stock SS wing a twin, but find the stock wing kinda weak when you put two, 250Watt outrunners on it.

Also, what about a "stock type" undercambered wing with dihedral, no ailerons, in balsa, for a real floater?

I like how the stock SS wing flys... I just don't like the weak foam...

I will consider adding it to my do list.

Thanks for the suggestion,

There is only 1 thing that would make the new SX even better than it alrady is.. that is if it was already made for me. Having a new baby makes it difficult to build. dang, finding time to assemble an arf is hard enough to do

I stil havent finished the micro 3dx from perry last year

Hey James,

Any word on the larger SSX project?

Or is that on the back burner for another while?

My reasoning to the redesign was also to experiment with features that I can carry over the the SSX Biplane and Big SSX. Both planes are now off the back burner.

1\16" Sheeting Question


Answered my own question...use the sheeting with the cutout (for servo access) on the opposite side of the one with a hole in it.

OK, I'm back to my original question: where does the 1\16" sheeting with the cutouts go? The pieces on Sheet 6 don't quite fit the picture in Step 13...and I know I'll glue something in the wrong place!

Thanks,



Jeff

That is the plan. I have several designs in the works.
