Default RE: Hellcat Build with 250cc Radial

Back to the wing. . .

I will try and describe how I am going to hinge the flaps. It will be done similar to the Ziroli plans at least in respect to the location of the hinge point. However I will use a 1/16 dia music wire hinge shaft. For the hole I will use 1/8” OD x .074 ID nylon tubing that I will glue in a slot. Attached is my layout to help clear it up. Originally I had planned to build up the location of the nylon tubing with balsa stick but it would be more accurate to take the flap over to a table saw and cut a nice straight slot with the leading edge of the flap against a the saw fence.
