Joe's F86 PSS build
« on: June 21, 2020, 15:09:04 PM »
Hi Bill,
How is the Sabre coming along.
I have been hammering away at one too. Found similar issues with the fit of parts.
Maybe you should have used a proper hammer !
Mine is almost finished it is ready for flight and just needing registration numbers and some more detailing.
I went for a four servo wing and installed a servo in the fin to operate the rudder. A lot of work and I am now thinking that I should have kept it simple  and installed full span flaperons and fixed rudder as the installation became quite fiddly.
However I am pleased with the result.

Joe

I'm stalled at the minute waiting on materials. Wings done and I'm on the fuselage planking. I went for the KISS principle so just an elevator servo and twin aileron servo's

Hi Joe,

    I have to get your letters done, I kinda stalled after starting them but will have another go tomorrow.

Looks great.

Spots or no Spots?
Tuff Choice.

Another build that will put us all to shame!  :-* :-*

(I moved the topic to its own thread, totally deserve it!  :-*)
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!
