So I have been designing the control surfaces and planning how I will do them. I want all removable control surfaces for installation, finishing and maintenance. On the flaps they will be the same as my P-47, G-10 for the hinges. I will make the tab on the hinge large enough that I wont need hinge block. I will glue them right into the foam cores. This should speed up the assembly.

On the first chippy I did a closed pocket with Robart hinge points. I did not get the throw I wanted so this style will give me all the throw I want.



The hinge pocket will be the same also, carbon fiber shell.



Linkage and servo will also be the same.



Ailerons will be a closed pocket like the prototypes with a hinge pin. G-10 for the hinges.



Linkage will be internal.



The ruder will be pined and G-10 for the hinges.

The elevator is going to be the biggest challenge being I want to be able to remove it. I want a one piece elevator like on the P-47, with the same kind of linkage.



On the first build I did two push rods and two torque rods, they failed and I had to abandoned them. So in addition to the single elevator I am looking in to a pull- pull for the elevator too. I will be building in a hatch under the elevator behind the tail wheel for access.
You can see on the full scale there is an area that can be made into a removable cap just in front on the elevator and under the ruder. This will allow me to remove the elevator in one piece.




So first up as soon as my kit gets here is to install the servo sleeves, gear blocks, and sheet the wing. Once the wing is sheeted I can cut the ailerons and flaps in. I will decrease the dihedral from the first about 50%.


Cant wait to get started, I'm starved for a plane to fly.
