Default Construction Pics of a Carden 35% Edge 540

I took the week off to have some quality time with my airplane :-).

I received the SWB servo/rudder system from Scott today along with the drill jig. Boy that jig made things easy.

I didn't get much done today as I had one meeting to attend this afternoon but will be hitting it hard tomorrow.

Heres a pic of the servo tray with the Futaba 5301 servo installed. I'm going with one for now and will probably install a second 5301 later. At 6v the servo is rated at 284 ounces of torque. I'm going JR on the rest of the plane but went with the 5301's as two of them will generate nearly 600 ounces of torque. I could have went with 3 JR 8411's but that would have increased the cost quite a bit. For my type of flying the 5301's will do the trick.

More pics to follow this week as construction continues......
