I can always count on you, my friend. Thanks for the calculator site... BUT !!!!!....... I have to say.... Those servos are unreal ! Awesome numbers (spd/torq) and at a TOTALLY fantastic price... half the price ! ... that's a no-brain'r to me! I don't have any servos (except throttle & lower torque servos for a 40 size) purchased for this plane (Revolver 70), so I am definitely going with them! I may even buy two for the elevators, instead of one to handle both sides, should I go that route.
Do you have any suggestions on getting the wings on more easily than I just tried... two person job, and really, really tight fit. Also the alignment nibs/holes do not line-up from wing to fuse.
I am kind of disappointed at the condition of the plane, as delivered. It has many, many wrinkles on every surface, and a dent in the fuse. But, for the price, for such a nice looking and a nice flyer/performer, it is money well spent. I might even buy another mid-2013 as a gasser. Can't wait to get her built up, but going to take my time while the snow flies and put skis on my Big Stik for winter flying while I build.
. Your thoughts? Anyone's thoughts??? I have always had a tad bit of trouble making sure the Robart hinges are lined up perfectly, do you have any suggestions?
I "think" the Nylon Hinges will hold if I use a "pinned"- type attachment in addition to epoxy, which I usually do, by putting three (3) toothpicks (sharp-pointed down through three (3) of the available six (6) holes (ex. In through the wing half, through the nylon hinge, and then partially, not fully through the other side of the wing half balsa, in a pattern like X - O - X
O - X - O
>========O < cotter pin
O - X - O
X - O - X
I hope that shows the configuration OK...??? If not a take a pic to better depict, just let me know.
Thanks Bill, I always appreciate and trust your opinion (esp. on over-sizing servos as it has always served me well).
