Building Aero 3D Day 69: Push Rod & Elevator Linkage

On Nov. 11th made some more progress. Started with unboxing and getting 3 servos ready. For the two heavy duty control surfaces (elevator & rudder) using HiTech HS-645MG servos and for the throttle that doesn’t undergo the same amount of force a HiTech HS-425BB servo. For putting the control horns on figured out where each … Building Aero 3D Day 69: Push Rod & Elevator Linkage Read More »

Building Aero 3D Day 68: Where are we?

On November 5th, Peter dropped off my fuselage. At the previous session we noticed there was a twist from sitting for so long (uncompleted). In order to fix this, in the featured image, you can see where a support piece was put as well as balsa sheeting glued over the back of the fuselage to … Building Aero 3D Day 68: Where are we?

I was wondering how the fin would remain stable on the fuselage and this was in part due … Building Aero 3D Day 67: Fin Glued Read More »

The session started with … Building Aero 3D Day 65: Fuselage Sanding Read More »

Building Aero 3D Day 64: Leading Edge Glued

On June 9th Peter was over, the pandemic was less scary, and I was soon to be a dad! This session involved removing the duck tape and pins from the previous session to see how the basla sheeting leading edge held its form. We then slapped a bunch of wood glue on the balsa and … Building Aero 3D Day 64: Leading Edge Glued Read More »
