Parallax in Model Aviation

I'm going to build this plane from Model Aviation magazine.
However, I'm not clear how the author mounted his servos in the wings. How can you do this? build a wood mount for the servo and glue it...

I've got a good bit of lead BB shot epoxied behind the nose cone of the spirit. I >think< one of the 2S 1500mah batteries I have on hand will fit in the wing area-I just eyeballed it this time.

Looking at my spirit, I now realize I probably can't get a motor on the nose, unless I want to shorten the canopy a whole lot too. I may go that route anyway. We'll see.

As a matter of fact, I DO have what I considered to be the ultimate glo power flight box.

Interesting layout Denny. I think I saw those cases at HF but didn't pay much attention to them at the time.

I too like to receive packages in the mail, probably more than I like having the contents, so OP's post is accurate.

What does the Electric flight field box look like?

I've been in and out of this hobby for over 20 years, although always keeping up my AMA and club memberships, and my equipment. Or more accurately, I've been active and inactive for over 20 years.

If you want to sell a plane, complete with engine and servos, be willing to part it out (and put a sign on it to that effect). That means bring tools to take those things off.
So if you have a...

RE: F3F-1 project

Thanks for the tip. I was able to find out about that small electric F3F with retracts.
