Default Vacuum Cleaners and Servo Pockets...

I had just finished using a dremel tool to size up the wing root servo pocket in a .25 size warbird combat ARF. Look at all dat wood dust in der I sez. Grabbed the trusty shop vac, shuv the snout about an inch from the servo hole and bam-bam-bam-bam-bam! The vacuum hose had pulled itself directly up to the pocket and sucked the covering on one wing panel so tight that all the laser cut ribs broke inward faster than I could pull away. Somebody.... shoot me!

Thanks for posting your oops. I'd rather learn from other's mistakes than my own. I admire your courage.

Default Courage with the hose or the writing?

The real courage comes when I order a another set of wings from the supplier. This was the second set after an initial damaged shipment. I can here him now.....
