had to enlarge the holes in the wing ribs where the wing tubes pass through to get the right dihedral. then cut some holes in the ply plates that go around the wing tube.they kind of work like a centering cam. they will be epoxied to the wing tube and ribsto hold in proper alignment..the holes that were precut put the dihedral almost an 1" off..little extra work but now is all set

This one is a future project for me. I'm putting together a H9 B-25 as a test bed and practice plane to test out subsystems, new processes, and my new DX18. This is a real handy transmitter. I was able to use servo balance to fix a flaps geometry problem and now I'm using it to sync my engines. Servo balance has 7 way points that you can fine tune to other channels. I'll be tuning each engine individually for best running, then using servo balance to match up rpms without changing the tuning. I used to use a JR matchbox. Then will come the bomb doors and separate bomb drop. Its running with a split power bus for servos and receiver.

back to the build...this aircraft has many complex curves...here is a few wood sheeting pieces wetted and taped into place on the aft lower fuse to conform close to a final shape and will get a final cut when dry....time involved with this part of the process but worth the end results

Subscribed. I built one of these shortly after the plans were released from Mr. Ziroli. Great flying plane!

I just bought a set of B-25 plans from a fellow club member..I was wondering if the planes came with a parts list...I like to be old fashion and cut my own wood...so I'm needing alist of wood that is used for this build....Thank you
