Funny thing, us not being too far apart, lol! I'm actually between Butler and Thomaston so we're only about an hour and a half apart LOL! I haven't been on Spadworld yet, probably try later today. I tried another forum, but it wouldn't let me on because my email is through yahoo and it requires an ISP...out here in the boonies our only option is Verizon so it's either gmail or yahoo...what's RCG?? Maybe I'll get on there too! Being retired (unfortunately) gives me a lot of time on my hands, when I'm done with the 'honey do' list that is!
When is the R/C show in Perry? I surely won't miss that now!!
The one thing that I did different from the Deb plans was that I put 2, 4"x4" piece of coro underneath the wing, about 4" from the center, to mount the servos in so that the ailerons will each have their own servo. That moved the control horns out a bit to help with the flutter possibility. I also trimmed the ailerons to an angle, about the last 5" on each end. Hopefully, both of these changes will help with that, if not, then I'll put in the dowels I guess. I'm going to use the ASP .61 because I figured it would be a good mid-size engine that Icould use on either these or larger planes should I decide to build one later. I REALLY love the P-51 and hope to build one out of coro later on...once I get where I can fly again, lol.
I'll have to try the coro body...I can get 4'x8' sheets of it for $11 so it would be a cheap build!! And I'll have to try the FNS, sounds like a lot of fun!!
