    ESM Hellcat

    Hey Y'all. Been working away on a ESM Hellcat I picked up from TBM. Has a DLE 35RA up front with Sierra gear. Well getting to the tail builing part and was curious to know if anyone that "built" thie plane followed the manual, mounted servos near tail feathers or used long pushrods.

    Thanks for your time!

    Bubba.

    WOW, thought some one on this board would own one of these planes. This it is also sold as a YT in europe? Could be wrong.

    RE: ESM Hellcat

    I "built" this Hellcat some time ago. Rudder and elevador have pull-pull cables, not the supplied in the kit but 40 pounds steel nylon covered fishing line. The plane will need nose wheight to balance, and to place servos near the tail will increase a lot the amount of lead to get the balance..
    After a lot of flights (and some arguments with gravity) the tail set up is working OK. BTW, the plane is a superb flyer.

    I hope this helps.
