    Well cut the bottom off a servo and made a small bracket inside the servo to hold the output shaft in place. This will be used for a choke mechanism to get the choke control from the back of the engine to the side of the fuselage.

  3. Why not use a servo? It is a neat idea you have there.

    Ran out of servo ports so had come up with something different. And it is lighter.

    That's one way to do it! I've used the Du-Bro bell cranks with much success in this application.

    Decided to try something different after tearing off fresh Ultracote covering recently, so I cut up a few small pieces of aluminum to make a firewall.

    Poor airplane had been sitting in the shop while home projects have been the priority. Have everything needed to finish, just need a few more hours. Hopefully done this week, and flying this weekend, if the weather cooperates.

    Well started into fitting the cowl around the GP38, will show some pictures once it is done . It has already been on and off to many times all that is fitted is the motor, now the muffler and the rest of the holes for tuning. All I can say there are two parts of this hobby I do not enjoy doing is fitting cowls and hinging.

    Made a start on the Revolver. Got the engine mounted and it a 1/4 to long so ending up with 1/4 inch gap between the spinner and cowl. Hate that have to do something about that but not going to move the firewall back, done that to many times and it is quite a bit of work thinking on how I can fix this another way.
    Have had a Revolver before and it was great plane to throw into the van and go for a quick flight. The plane is well built and sturdy, also good in the wind.
    Yes I know the engine is a little over size but that is what I had on the bench spare and so that is what is going in. Not buying another glow I do like them but the fuel is getting hard to get and expensive, will use up what I have and slowly move all the smaller stuff into electrics.
