    1/6 FB F-5 canopy mechanism

    Finally Finished!!!

    I got busy and finished the scale canopy mechanism for my F-5. It uses one drive servo and 2 small servos for the front locks and is removable for interior access. Going to Super Jet South tomorrow for the trial run.

    Here's some pics.
