I did not accomplish any work what so ever this past week end. I spent every minute I could in my Lazy Boy nursing my back. It is already pretty bad and work Friday really tore it up. I have another appointment with the pain management Dr. in a little more than a week. Even if he just gives me more bad news I still can’t wait. The nerve, back and neck pain just stop me from doing anything much of the time,
But enough of that.
Today I took the day off for a different Dr. appointment and some lab work, so I got a little don on the plane.
I think I worked in about 10 or 15 minute stretches the back to the Lazy Boy to rest the back and let the pain levels settle. There were a good number of short sessions today. So all in all I accomplished most of what I wanted.
The radio box has been rebuilt a bit, longer and deeper. Now things fit nicely. I even added a Futaba type switch with a JST connector between the battery and the UBEC inside of the radio box. I ran a piece of real small piano wire to the switch and outside the box with a loop on the end to actuate the switch.
The UBEC is mounted on the opposite side of the radio box (in board and opposite of exhaust) with double sided foam tape and a zip tie.
The hatch for the radio box did not quite clear the servo and power connectors at the radio. And I also wanted a clear window of that part of the Rx so I could see the bind LED.
I explained that I was thinking plastic little parts plaster pack might work real good to my wife. She told me to bring her bead box to her. She rummaged around in it for a bit and pulls out a blister pack of little bitty beads. Asked if I thought it might work. Looked about right to me. So the beads went into a little plastic bag. The blister pack got cut to the right size and glued to the hatch. I am thinking I will keep her (wife that is). So the last thing to do to the plane is to iron some cote onto the radio box.
I am really, really happy I made some progress today.
One more thing. I bought some 20# braided spectra fishing line. Now to learn to tie some knots. ADOUBLE UNI-KNOT is supposed to be as strong as the line itself. most knots are substantialy weaker than the line. http://seaguar.com/seaguar-community...e-uni-knot.htm
