    Shut up, you`re embarrassing me, I`m not that clever.:confused:
     
  2. I have a hard time believing that you could be embarrassed. ;)

  3. Fuse unwrapped, wedge filling started , controls are all done in the wings. Now to let the glue cure so I can trim and sand down the fuse. Then to figure out where I will put the elevator and rudder servos??

    It turns out there is an ugly duckling in the AN 2 family. It has high tech wing, new empenage and turbo prop engine. Well I suppose you could say they built a new plane and used the old fuselage:D

    Did you mange to fit the cockpit by score and fold or did you need to cut it to make it fit?
    I thought you may have been tempted to make a 3D printed cowl for the front.
    Looks great:)
     
  8. Score and fold. ;)

  9. Rear servos are located now and tubing ran for the piano wire. Vertical on next then the rear bottom plate and horizontal last. Couple little templates to hold the vertical and horizontal square as the glue cures. Hatch is also cut in, Soon the wings should start going on.

  11. I do have to redo my elevators because I had the control horns in already for external mounted servos but this should look clean and neat. Just make sure the servos are centered, once the wing is on you are hooped. :D :D

  12. Oh, the control rods just clear each other, I also have them on the inside of the servo arms. ;)

  13. Hatch is complete, controls are all in and wings are on. Oh also some little strut braces done for the horizontal . :) 2018_1211_052322_001.JPG 2018_1211_052331_002.JPG 2018_1211_052347_003.JPG 2018_1211_052414_004.JPG 2018_1211_055155_001.JPG 2018_1211_052443_005.JPG 2018_1211_064313_001.JPG
     
  14. Well motor is in along with all the electronics, now just some landing gear and it is ready for a bashing. ;)

  15. I forgot I had design removable landing gear on the Corsair so back into Tinkercad and redesign the mount and a little printing plus steal the gear off of the Corsair the AN2 now has landing gear.

    I also added a little skid on the back so the rudder wasn't dragging on the ground.

    She is technically ready to test.

    Hi Jeff
    If you could design a tight fitting 3D printed slot that goes inside the fuse and the landing gear you have there to push fit into the slot it would look better.
    I will try to draw what I mean and email the idea to you.

  17. Heck of an idea. :)


    Maybe next build because it would need to be designed into the structure and be part of the build.

    Here is one of my finest freehand renderings. It came out side ways, but you get the idea.
    Have a wide flange around the slot to spread the weight. May be the slot could be fitted between two depron formers.
    The slot and UC could be a standard fixing for future builds.

  19. Really the design is simple to do with even some plywood and some short piece of say 1/2 x 1" wood stock . The picture I have in my mind you could install after the build is done to, wouldn't have to be on the inside and all you would see is the plywood.
