    Nicely done that aileron is not easy to build. So hinge point will be interesting to find for the end section. Nice work.

    Thanks guys! Just got my wood order, so I can get started on the right wing panel. Hinging is another thing I've got to get worked out.
     
  3. What style hinges are you planning to use?

    I'm thinking of using the Sig X hinges, and a length of piano wire to secure them, as I'll be able to remove the surfaces if I need to. If I go with any thing else, it will probably just be Robart 3/16 pin hinges. I think the Sig X's will be easier to install though.
     
  5. Look like they are top hinged, should be fun. Hinging is one part of the build I hate, tried many different methods put ever found one I like.

    Well, I decided to use the Sig Super X hinges. I've used them alot in the past and like them. I'll be using some music wire to pin them so I can remove the surfaces if I need to. Here's some pics.

    So the lights are powered from the receiver at 2S lipo. That’s handy looks interesting. And the port it is plugged into has control of on/off.

    Yep, it plugs right into the receiver and I use an aux switch to turn them on and off. It does work really well.
