I am pretty upset with myself right now.
Painted the wing today and cut away the fiberglass that was hiding the
wingspan retracts to expose them again after many months.
Hooked up the servo tester to the first one and lowered it. Perfect :-)
Hooked up the second one to the tester and slipped one pin over.
Sparks....Fry....Stink.... PCB board fried. :-(
Can't blame anyone but myself and that hurts.
Wingspan had replacement PCB boards in stock, but shipping to the great white north here
will probably take me into the new year.
Oh, well there is enough other stuff to work on the Corsair. I'll put my mind to the Topflite
Cockpit kit with a pilot, throttle and choke linkage. That'll keep me busy for a while.

Happy building & flying!
