Francois,

I’ll reply via PM on RCG in order to not “contaminate” further Mike’s excellent build thread.

Just to expand on the comments on RCG regarding converting MK classics to electric, the main challenge is to figure out how to gain access to the LiPo pack - ideally from the top. Locating a 6s5000...

Jim,

I've been unable to yet get my re-design cut but will do so before the Summer. Work has prevented me from all the fun stuff!

Will,

not sure what you mean. To me it looks like a standard four nipple RF-P pump unit. The Hanno naturally has the simpler two nipple pump unit.

Looks good Lamar!

lf you want it to really have some kick and durability to the finish, you should now wet sand it with 2000 grit wet to flatten it. It will feel counter intuitive to do this but...

Lamar,

the DB40 is designed for a 2” spinner. They only come in 1/4” increments. The TT is still the nicest spinner made and they come in anodized colours if you like. Adds a little pizzaz to the...

well that’s clearly the key to the process. However, I wouldn’t entrust an iron on any painted finish at any temperature. I’ve had my share of having to redo paint due to different reasons and it’s...

I've never used the Tamiya tape so I can't comment on it. The 3M is what the pros use for detailing and if applied properly it will give you 100% bleed free sharp lines. You might want to detail the...

I'd go with a Novarossi R60F side exhaust in it. Or..., a YS Classic SE also now available.

Lamar,

Ideally you’d install the pushrod as close to the center of the output shaft on the servo. This reduces throw but increases resolution so it’s preferable. For the control horn, the further...

Lamar,

good to see you making progress. FWIW, 3/32" sheeting is overkill on framed up classic wings. Particularly if you use vertical grain shear webs spanning the spars and rib bays.

Krafty,

assuming it will build to ~12 lbs you will want about 2400 W of power for great performance. As far as the motor you're looking at a 140-160 equivalent so whatever may be in your price...

it is possible to use non retract servos for retracts but these days, it is not particularly desirable considering that modern retract servos DO have end point adjustment. The Spektrum 7000...
