    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    some more photos only need to cut rudder and will make the front top removable ( I`ll attach with servo screws), to make easy access. Patricio ( my youngest son ) posing with the 51 inches wing.
    ItΒ΄s my first scratch built model plane so Im anxious to finish and fly it.

    Plane is looking good so far

    Word to the wise though:
    Stay away from the Kraft & Dogs.... just to be safe.

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    Already cut, made hinge slots and covered rudder and stabilizer, no photos yet (`till I figure a trim scheme), also made aileron torque housing,those little details take time (since is the first time I make this).

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    aileron torque rods installed


    Now some questions:
    1.-Can I install the aileron servo on one side of the center ribs as not to weaken the middle joint? (this is not cutting a square space in the middle ribs but in either side of the middle?).

    2.- Wich servo will do I have both futabas 3004 and hitec hs 88 I`ll use a .15 os max .15 fp. ( I know I havent weighed this thing yet).

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    If yo need to you can put it to one side, but you might get assymentrical movement between the two ailerons.

    I'm not familiar with the HS88, do you mean HS81 or HS85 maybe? Either way, if it is smaller than the S3004, then use it.

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    Youre right they are HS 81, being smaller they`ll require a smaller cut out.
    Thank you Bipe

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    I already made cuts for the HS 81, itΒ΄s shallower only IΒ΄ll add 1/4 of an inch hardwood to screw the servo and leave more rib area glued together.

    fuel proofed the fuselage, made aileron hinges and slits.

    The wing is finished, now to cover .
    On the fuse install servo rails, and cover, and then glue empenage.

    It's coming along nicely. At this rate you'll be flying before Dave.

    Where is Dave anyways, anyone heard from him lately?

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    I don't think the windows are bad at all- if it were me, I'd add another triangle to the front window, starting from the existing front corner of the side window, and extending down, so that the rear side is as wide as the square window next to it.. Make sense?

    It looks great by the way- I wish I could cover that well!

    Hi, I have an e-flite park 450 outrunner brushless and a 3 cell 2100 maH LiPo battery. I was wondering if this setup would work in the 1/2a LST. Thanks!

    RE: 1/2A trainer anyone?

    OMG

    I discovered this forum this evening and have been reading this thread for 2 hours, instead of going to bed, because i couldn't wait to get dave's review of this trainer. Now I'll be on pins and needles until we can wake him up somehow! All that hard work and that lovely lil plane. Mebbe a small excursion to Canada is in order......

    I have always somehow been intrigued by the minute scale of 1/2 A aircraft, even tho all my buddies seem to think that the big stuff is much sexier. I am completely delighted to find you guys here.
