  1. Well I got tired of redoing many things on the Waco and decided to get back to Work on my 84' Bush Master (Turbo Beaver) I elected to go with the MKS HV-9767 servo's. I was told they should drop right in, not so I will have to trim the length of each bay to install. always something to put a snag in the process of getting things done LOL!!! Turbo beaver.jpg

    I have the 1250’s in mine and they work great. Yes, I had to elongate the servo bays to make them work. But it wasn’t that bad. Glad to see you making progress on it!

  4. Wow!! nice Super Otter AKNick. looking at the pictures, gets back to another project I have been trying to get at. Floats with wheels so I can fly off pavement and NEVER HAVE TO TAKES THE FLOATS OFF all the planes I have them on. I have bought an extra set of floats for the 84" Cessna 150, and the C123 Cargo plane. and have been thinging of ways to do the Amphibian Style floats, like the ones on the Super Otter you have photo's of, it would be real cool if They made them

    More work on the super otter. Strips are made and getting put down. Not sure if I should add the N# or not.... hmmmm. Also how to add WARD AIR on the strips. I can ask for the file from the company and get it printed... curious if it’s worth the hassle or not.
    The white outline strip on the top is killing me.... might cheat and add a little blue under it to make it thin like the lower stripe.

    Man. It took me two evenings and a redo to get a sloppy UltraCote job done. It’ll work.

    Super Otter is moving along with her fancy new paint job lol

    Just got approval from the company who's paint scheme I'm using for my Super Otter to swing by their decal provider and see if they can scale down and print me some decals for the plane. It will look so much better and I would be ecstatic to utilize them. No idea what they will charge or if they can do it... but it's worth a try! :big-grin:

    I'm falling in love with using the 3D printer at work. finally starting to learn enough that I'm dialing in the setting a lot better and getting way better results.
