Ive had this project for a while and just never got a chance to start it. I took an evening and set to work on it, 4hours later I was ready for the air!
Below are some pics of the build. My overall impression of the kit is as usual Eflite quality improves kit by kit, so many simple touches that make a build so straight forward.
Control horn is a phenolic material, 15min epoxy was using to attached them to the pre-slotted ailerons. I missed a picture out on the next stage, hinging the aileron is in the using way using “hairy” type hinges with some cyano!
A few steps in one here, the elev & horz stab are fitted, the stab is measured & positioned then glued in place with cyano. The elevator is then hinged and horn fitted as per aileron. The fin is now glued in place, ensuring it square. The tailwheel assembly is fitted to rudder in pre-formed slot and hinged with “hairy” hinges also.
Cowl, spinner and prop fitted. Ready to test fly.
Ill apply the decals before the test flight. Fingers crossed for some calmer wind to try it out!
Thnaks as always to Horizon for the opportunity to test their great products. Also Thnaks to Andy at Optipower for the best cells on the market!!
Flying review to come.
