  1. A little 3D printing and some 1mm cf rod. ;)

  2. Well wedge filling is done along with the initial sanding. Looks pretty sweet so far. Next the assembly starts.

  3. The tail will be the quick and fun install. Where I chose to have the rudder servo plus the elevator servo wire will share the same hole means all 3 pieces have to go together at the same time while pulling the wire into place. 2018_1231_070158_002.JPG 2018_1231_070208_003.JPG
     
  4. Tail section is on and next the wing. :)

  5. Taped the wires together so they pull as one and on goes the wing. :)

  6. I had added doublers all the way down the fuse so when the bottom plates go on more glue surface plus added strength. An after thought now that the vertical is in lets reinforce it even more so two large doublers on both sides of the vertical. They are in contact with the battery tray, rear former and will meet up with the bottom tray so it should add a ton of strength to the back end.

  7. Ooops, with the rear doublers in. ;)

  8. Well I added to that little rear structure to really box in the vertical, 2 more little pieces. Needed my needle nose pliers to get them in but they are in. ;)

  9. I think my only mistake (that I am telling of ;) ) is I should have used 3 or 4mm rod epoxied into the vertical rather then 3mm strips glued in. Horizontal can twist slightly so I may have to add a couple more struts from the horizontal forward to the side of the fuse to stabilize it. Live and learn. :D

  10. Bottom plates are now glued on, starting to come together. :)

  13. That should be easy. Write down your dr settings including a little diagram of where you have it trimmed in for the SU30. Now using the same channel hook set up your A10 into it and once you have it dialed in write down all you settings for it and make sure to put on there what channel you used. I have way more planes then channels, each cockpit has a piece of paper in it telling me what channel and what the settings are that way I am not starting from scratch.
     
  14. Just dabbling away. :)

    Look in your transmitter it will have the mix on the SU or copy the SU mix and modify it for the A10.
    Or clone throttle channel on 5 instead of gear.
    Throttle >slave rudder channel.
    Channel 5 throttle slave rudder channel and reverse it in limits.
    Then set your percentage.
    Does that jog your memory?:)

    I
    I keep at least one diff thrust program and copy it, then modify it for the new plane.

    You could pop a twin arm servo at the back of the fuselage and hook up your twin rudders.

  19. Well we have another pair of struts on the tail, now she is solid. Didn't have enough of the 1mm cf rod so BBQ skewers it is. ;)
    Also added 4 triangular pieces inside the canopy opening to firm up the side walls.

  20. Those strut holders come in handy dont they? Love the looks of your plane... esp. the canopy!
