    drop plane help

    hey guys I am building the wing for my super flying king. I am putting in hard points on the wing to carry up to four RC Skydivers. I dont know of anyone with skydivers or even have one myself (YET) so I have some questions.

    How much space needs to be between mounting points (centerline to centerline) to be sure they clear eachother. I dont know if it matters or not but would just two 4-40 bolts into the main spar be enough to hold an RC skydiver drop box?

    Lastly, how are other people managing the drop boxes servo leads going into the fuselage/wing? I was thinking of making a plug or something on the bottom of the wing into which the servos could plug into when the drop boxes are mounted.

    We keep our boxs about 15" apart, our Hangtime arms are pretty wide so I would think that would accomidate any "standard" size skydiver.

    We use 4 - 4-40 bolts to hold each box, this just keep it rigid on the plane at all times.

    Yes the best way is to put outlets in the wing for the drop box to plug into, kinda like a charge cord. This keeps it neat and you could remove them if you want with no hassle.

    Awesome airplane by the way, I think this is thee best plane on the market for skydivers. But it is a big plane and not everyone cares to mess with that big of plane.
