Samo, you fool.

You've put the elevator on the wrong stick

Nice work.

I like the fact that you can add a bit of tape to the stab LE's in front of the vert as insurance.

I like the slopeotage rudder horn. I assume the rudder is skin-hinged on the right side? How thick is the rudder at the hinge point?

Spot on Dieter, the hinge is on the other side. The black strip you see in the picture is the wiper.

The thickness of the rudder on the hinge line is about 10mm, and the slopeotage horn thickness is about 12mm. Lots-o-beef.

Sweet!!! NO WAY would push rods be as nice!! That's the way to build these babies-- I've got an electric Trinity fuse too--and the V-tail has two DS60 size servo pockets in it!! I'm going to get another one for my F3F version and eliminate the pushrods on that one too!!!!

I must apologise for my tardiness. Samotage has been busy with "other" activities so that some slope budget can be rebuilt... However the shop is still stocked with enough stuff to "git'r'done" only issue for me is the time factor.

Anyway, enough guff, and on with the show...

A question for those out there... I have 2 Intellect 1400 mAh packs... I suspect these are too small... In my larder I have some relatively fresh 1950 FAUP's that could be turned into RX packs or I could source some nice Tenergy SubC's to manufacture into packs...

Wondering what peoples thoughts are?

Sam, alot of my friends which fly F3B here are using 1400mAh rx battery packs but its seems like it may be small for slope flying. Ive got a 2500mAh Ni-mh to go in my Eagle. But the size is normal AA.

I think the intelects would be fine . Plenty of grunt ( far more than those bloody AA`s ) And you`d still get a reasonable flying time out of them . If you did feel a need for a recharge at the slope you`ve got plenty of other weapons to fly in the meantime .

I like the GP 2/3 Sub C 2200's if you have the room, and they fit well like this:

Hey T,

I am going for fll sized Sub C's. It WILL need the weight, and 10 minutes is too short at time to fly... I suspect that the E version will need a nice long stick of Subbies most of the way down the tail boom to balance the "heavy" package up the front. Should make for some tasty egg beaters

Harnessed


So, time has come to harness the iron, and make the wire do what I want. I am going for the Naton style loom and power bus. It's really quite trick.

The long white loom is for slope-o-tage, whilst the other shorter one is for the electr o-tage.

Sam,
