Getting ther dude!! Wel done elevator looks a lot better now! Yeh you can get them reversers & il Settle it over PayPal with you if that's what you want!! Iv managed to get some alloys and trailing link legs aswel, it's hard to find them to fit on those eflite retracts come around next week and have a look at them thers. 2 types. I wanted to get some tam jets but they do not do anything to fit the eflite 80-120 size retracts! Also must say Thanks to (Dave ) from motors & rotors who has helped us with this project! Thanks Dave! Scot Keep it up dude il see you next week don't work to hard

Raj,

Done the canopy today, worked out quite well - very pleased with my work ... you owe my wife a box a cling film (took the Gripen out today and put 3 mean flights on it as well)

Also extended the rod support at the exit of the fuselage for the elevator rods .. much happier now (would have been ok though)

Did you source the Y lead reverses from Gliders today?

Scott.

Raj,

Managed to find an afternoon to get on with your citation ... got the servos and rods into the wings.

The under carriage mounts literally fell out of the wings :-( so I made some proper ones and epoxied them in.

The eflite retracts fit like a peach but the depth of the wings ment I had to mount them at a slight angle other wise they would be sitting proud, but I think it looks ok ...

I managed to cobble together a dual nose wheel front leg from the old habu stuff and some bits and pieces from my spares pots :-) , not long now fella ...

Great job on the horns you made. They certainly don't look home-made. If you could make hundreds of them, you would not have any problem selling them! Put me in for at least 50 of them if you decide to make them. Best horns I've ever seen!

Raj,

As discussed cant use the front leg as the pin required is not in the eflite kit and the hole is the incorrect size so I have fitted the standard one (looks ok and works well enough)

I replaced all the wood for the retract mounts with proper ply as the wood installed was poor quality, but where do you stop?

Kinda making it up as I go now, just as well the instructions were rubbish .. All the hard work is done now, it is starting to put weight on, but whats in there has to be in there ...

I have do a dry fit to wet your appetite!

I willl attach a couple of vids in a short while.

Scott.

Those eFlite retracts are much under-rated. I use them on the mains for my Futura. Only small issue you can get with them is if the two sides of the frame aren't tight together. If not, the circuit board that has the micro-switches can drop out of the grooves in the two sides of the frame...and then the whole thing don't work.
