Balance it right side up. I use something called the CG machine for big airplanes. You can google it. Briefly, it's a system that uses a rope cradle around the fuse in front of and behind the...

I have built 3 of these P-40s. Balance it with the gear down just as it states. Marking the CG on the print is relative. Yes, when the gear is retracted, the CG moves back a little, so Ziroli could...

sjhanc,
Thanks for going the extra mile and cutting into your old wing. I agree with you, they installed the block in my wing backwards. The block in question has both the blind nut installed and...

sjhanc,
I understand what you are suggesting with the tab, but the blind nut is actually in the wing (closer to the wing tip) by about 1/2". When looking into the wing sheeting hole, I can see a...

sjhanc,
I tried your suggestion and removed the inboard flap, no difference as seen in the photo. I then plugged in the wing using only the rear tube, again no difference. I put a small square...

I received the new outer panels last Thursday and I still couldn't get them to mate with the center section, so I took Paul's advice and ordered new 1.250" aluminum tubes. This made a big...

I may have spoken too soon. I just received an email indicating HH is just sending me the outer wing panels. Different from what they said on the phone. Hopefully new wing panels will fix the...

HH called today and said they were going to send me a new wing. I asked if they could test fit it before sending it, but they said they couldn't.

Whether or not the new wing has issues, I think...

Paul,
I have only installed the cockpit and before I started installing control horns and servos in the wing, I thought I'd better see if the wing panels would go together based on other comments in...

Admit it, you finally caved to all the pressure from the Saturday lunch crowd so we'd quit asking 'When are you going to finish the Mossy?'.

I understand completely Andy, I was a programmer for 38 years. And I'm not trying to be difficult, and I agree there are more planes with flaps than retracts. So if the intent was to try to cover...

Wouldn't it just be easier to ask on the wing type screen if a gear channel is required, then assign the left elevator to aux3 and leave the gear channel alone since it's needed?

I had a similar situation with Hitec 985MG servos. I have a DX8 and AR8000 receiver on dual 2000mA NiMH packs. It didn't matter if they were on a 'Y' or separate channels. Plug in one and it...

Andy,
Thanks for all the help. I'll have to have someone point me in the right direction on what I need to build my own extensions.

This fall I'm going to start on a 120" Ziroli B-25, so I...

Andy,
The plane is a Ziroli P-40, but I made it into a 3 piece wing and had to split the flaps because half of the flap is on the plug in section and the other half is on the center section. So I...

Andy,

1) Would I need the x-plus module to accomplish this? I don't think I have 3 more channels available on the receiver(AR9020)?

2) If I have 2 flap channels, I would still require a Y...

With an 18 channel Tx, I'm not sure the smallest possible receiver footprint should be the major design criteria. Also, if you stick with the basic wing configuration you're not taking advantage of...

Andy,
In future releases, is there anyway to leave the gear channel assigned to gear until it's determined that the plane does NOT require it? It seems more logical to me to assign flaps to one of...

I have a DX18 and I've added a plane with wing type 2 ail, 1 flap, and 2 elevators. The flaps were assigned to the gear channel, so I assigned switch A to aux3 for my gear channel. When I go to the...

Thanks Sam,
I thought you might have used the pre-mixed colors from their sample cards, but I see they are custom color matches. It will be easy enough to duplicate from your pictures of the lids....
