Servo Lead mishap!!!!!!
« on: May 23, 2007, 10:28:22 AM »
Hi,

I was flying my electric 'Daisy' last night, practising a few landings.  :)



As a beginner I had a bad crash, the wing tip clipped the ground and the nose smashed into the ground.  :oops:

I have these servos installed.



The lead (wires) going into the reciever got pulled out leaving the plastic clip still in place in the reciever.



The frayed wires are now loose.

Can this be fixed or will I need to buy a new servo ?

Any help/tips will be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Anthony

Hey Anthony,
Not to worry, can be easily repaired ! Cut the wires, and sold a new one !
I have a few at home, if you want to come  :D

Was really close to go to the slope yesterday evening.. If I knew you were there, I will have come  :?

Fred,

Thanks :D , I am around this weekend if thats ok with you to meet up.

I went up to the slope but the wind was a bit too strong so I went to my local soccer pitch with plenty of long grass and practised a few landings before the crash!

No Pb, anytime this week end. I have to fly the Opel !  :D

And the glider ? Nothing broken ?
And I have the club's EasyGlider at home, if you want to fly.. Just have to put your radio on it.
If you want to go to the slope tonight too.. Let me know and I'll put it in charge.

Well,

I damaged the joining of the wing to the plane, the dowel snapped but with a bit of glue and a new dowel it will be fine.

The engine mount at the front broke but it did not bend the shaft or damage the propeller. If i glue back the mount and re attach the engine it will be fine. Apart from that all is well. :)

I am not around tonight (Liverpool on TV tonight), definitely around Saturday all day. It would be nice to fly the EasyGlider on Saturday just in case my Daisy is not ready.
