    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    Just having a look at the stuka, and noticed there are only 2 servo hatches in the wing for the aleron servo's and none for the flap servo (as shown in the instructions) and none of the holes for the alerons and flaps line up with the hinge points. Also there are no places cut for the inboard flap hinges.
    Is this a common issue, or am I just lucky?

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    the flap servos are covered by the coverig, u should be able to see where they go. Use an axcto knife. u have to drill for the hinges.the hles that are there were factory paint holes...

    they should be under the covering. U should be able to feel them under there. u have to cut the slots for the hinges too.

    Kwik, the siren is terrific! Very audible. What is your voltage source?

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    Hello Rick. Yes the siren works very well.

    I am using a 3S Lipo at the moment. After the last flight I forgot to turn it off. The battery switch, that is. After a week it was discharget trough the LED in the switch, and was destroyed. As you know, a LiPo cell is destroyed if you allow it to go below 2.5Volts. This happened to me.

    So I will use two A123 batteries in the future. That will give me 6.6 x 2 Volts.

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    Hey Guys

    I just got this model from Thomas. None of the hinge holes are drilled in my ailerons or flaps. How are you drilling the holes without coming through the surface of the parts?
    Is anyone still using the aerovate engines, and how are they holding up?

    Thanks
    Ron

    Found the flap servo bays.

    I was just out in the garage machining a set of stand-off's for the Aerovate 32 I plan to hang on the front of the Stuka, need to make a shorter set, 1 7/8" long.

    Glad I have a lathe in the garage, handy for that kind of thing.

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    Good work on the Siren, Kwik... I have an idea about that Wolo siren. I would like to use an ESC (might have to install a different motor) in conjunction with the rate control feature of my Hitec Aurora TX to control the spooling up & down of the siren. I am hoping that I can reverse the channel controlling the siren (ESC) and mix it to the throttle stick, while using a switch to arm the mix. Hopefully, that will evenly spool up the siren as I throttle down & roll over into the dive to deploy the bomb, and then back down as I add in throttle after the pullout. It just might make that siren sound a little better. Any thoughts? I have already started massing the parts for this

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    Firepower;
    Letting an ESC run the motor should work? Cannot see any reason why not.

    Next, whether the Aurora TX mix idea will work, I really dont know. It sounds like you want a reversal of throttle input?

    Minimum throttle gives maximum siren speed, and opposite? Cannot see why it shouldnt work, either.

    So, go ahead, experiment! That is the fun part, if you ask me!

    By the way, the ramp up-down....I wonder.....it could be that a big juicy capacitor on , say, 4700 microfarad in parallell with the
    motor would work too.....??

    Maourit :
    I friend of mine used a Saito 180. It was a perfect fit. Cannot answer for the other engines. But the Saito 180 drinks fuel so fast you
    wouldnt believe it. So if you consider buying a Saito 180, I think I would consider a Saito FG 30 too. Its a petrol engine, and can
    run forever on a tank.

    I second the fuel-drinking capabilities of the Saito 1.80... nice, nice engine, but you will be buying fuel for it by the case

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    well I got sick of waiting for a muffler, so I built one from brass, copper and steel all silver soldered together and it fits inside the cowl.

    Any thoughts or recomendations as to what prop to use on a 32cc gasser?

    I'm swinging an 16 X 10 three blade on my DLE30 (I would go bigger but three blade props start getting really expensive above 16"). Are you using a two blade?

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    Hi Maneba,

    It looks nice, but I am little bit afraid of the strength the front part, because when you did the holes behind the engine, you maybe disturb the structure. This fibreglass is not very strong and vibrations behind the engine are very big. Do you have some silent blocks (anti shock system) on the engine base?

    Does any know if it is necessary to add any lead, when I use DLE 30?

    RE: KMP Stuka-build details

    I had to enforce the whole area in front of the cockpit by laying up a layer of fiberglass at the inside.

    Used finishing resing. It sticks very well to the fuse's inside.

    Had extra lot close to the firewall. Soaked the firewall area real good.

    Before that, with a G-28 the whole front moved around at least one cm amplitude on idle.

    It looked like the pilot had Parkinson, or something.

    The 30 cc line of planes from ESM is designed for 4-stroke glow engines, me thinks. Not 2 stroke gassers.

    The 50cc Corsair is stiff enough up front from the factory. Dont forget locktite on ALL screws and bolts.

    Espesially on servos with metal gears. And ditch all plastic ARF stuff regarding horns and clevis'es.

    Here is the other side of my engine. I added some picture of the origin engine base. I cut it and made new one which I put together with fuselage by layer of the fibreglass. Inside the fuselage behind the engine will be the ignition.

    Hi Prekin. I've added a lot of carbon fiber and carbon sticks behind the new firewall. No silent block for me. The dle30 is very long and i've no space to move it more back. I hope to have no problems with vibrations, otherwise i'll install a 1.80 Asp 4T engine. I've just ordered a new cowl and a new canopy. The original canopy got damaged during trimming. It's to brittle...
