Avistar Crash and Rebuild Thread
About a month ago I attempted to fly my avistar, the only change from previously successful flights was the change from a .46la to a .46nx. A few feet of the ground it banked 180 degrees right and went straight into the ground, no idea why. This is actually my second plane to do that, my other being an escapade. Both planes in the exact same spot on the runway. Nothing similar between the two planes, different battery, rx, tx and all. Just same pilot.
I will attempt to rebuild (refurbish) the avistar, though. I will post pictures of the wreckage later, along with turning this into the thread of the rebuild. I am open to feedback, and here are my plans:
1. Rip off all covering and remove all hinges.
2. Fix all damaged balsa and possible beef up in certain spots.
3. 1 servo per aileron (no torque rods)
5. Move rudder servo towards tail and put hatch in.
Any advice on any of these steps, anymore ideas or anything I shouldn't do let me know.
I wish to do 1 servo per aileron to allow for flapperons, plus the torque rods were extremely bent.
How do I remove the hinges from the hinge slot? Can the new hinges go in the same slot or should new spots be cut.
How much would I need to beef up the wings for servos?
Any ideas on the hatch. I want to put the servo there as tail-weight needed to be added.
Where/how would the gear be mounted i.e. in relation to cg?
Thanks, any advice on any issue would be very helpful.
