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.

Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Joe, I hope you dont mind me hijacking your post. My Sabre is coming along slowly. My first time using glass to cover. Just finished the underside and waiting to cure. Tomorrow the top. Then finish the cockpit.
