Mini Winch.,


Hi.

I once made a glider like yours. and the answer was, now what do I do with it.

well.

I made a winch out of a GWS C drive, a wood spool (made that part), a spare reciever and battery. Oh, the winch reciver is on the same channel as the glider, I just hooked the winch up to channel 3. all you do is hook up. throttle up, and away she goes!! no joke. it works.

Hi, I am totally new to this group. This is my first day and my first post too.
I just cutted in a laser cut the same project.
I have it ready to assemble.
Since this is my third RC model I am a bit afraid of finding the correct CG and also
the best placement of the servos (specially the one to control ailerons). A cut in the fuselagel to allow one servo to control two ailerons seems to weaken the structure, any suggestions ?

Below a pict of the model ready to assemble.
By the way I hope I did not do bad in reviving an old post such as this.

Thanks for the attention.
