    Does anybody have any how-to articles or ideas on cargo doors? I want to add a payload box for candy drops, parachutes, bombs etc. I'd like to be able to open and close the doors via a servo.
    I have a few ideas rolling around in my head but any help would be much appreciated.

    If it will help, I can get you a photo or two of my candy drop box I built a few years back. I strapped it under my trainer to drop candy to the kiddies. I used (2) Hitec HS 58 servos for the two doors.

    Nothing elaborate and just tossed together at the last minute before family fun day. But it served it's purpose very well for a number of years.

    Made a servo mount tonight out of 1/8" ply for the tail servos. I just have to glue it in place.

    happy-nodding-smiley-face-emoticon.gif It sure is. I've been looking at my lil 70" gas converted trainer a lot lately. Still like brand new condition, but have been thinking a huge plane like yours, Mike would be a lot easier for the grandsons to see. Plus it would be big enough you could stuff in the rotting corpse of the last person that stuck a pin in you.... voodoo-smiley-emoticon.gif ...then drop it in the desert. Lol.
    See...?? Two fold fun. Flying and bomb drop too.

    Well back from JoeNall and glad to be back home. First I have to thank you for the servos got all of them. It was quite hard to find your friend but it all worked out good.
    The plane is coming along well and looking good.
