Scale Wendell Hostetler 30% PA-28 Cherokee Build

What changes? It's all there now. The lug below accepts a CM6 plug, the thermistor bulb are crimped in the lug and a little heat shrink tube and you have plug indication. For 1/4"-32 plugs I use a 10-12 gage 1/4" lug. How many temps do you need? You can daisy chain FrSky SP-RPM RPM/Temp sensor to get as many as you need, two temperature sensors per device, you must change the channel so that each device is unique. I have both plugs monitored and will measure incoming and air leaving on the plane I am currently finishing up. The sensors were in the Cherokee
Yep! Exactly what I've done. I've found too that you can buy the dual wire probes for less than the radio manufacturers offer and with wire length measured in feet, not inches.

Ordered the wood for the replacement build this morning from National Balsa. I emailed them a while ago and ask if I could purchase the 3/8" laser cut firewall only due to an accident, they sent me one for free, great people to deal with. I still have about 50% of the original laser cut kit since I changed most of the construction from the original design.
Finished up the One Design and need to rebuild the Champ landing gear before starting back here.
Have some new ideas to make this one better and plan to provide those details as the build progresses.
We shall see!

There's a limit to that however. I asked if I could get just the fuselage formers and they said no.

Well, I have the plans and can use them to make what I need. They're not scale outline anyway. Close but still not quite there.

Yes the formers are on sheets with the wing ribs, stabilizer and rudder parts, they are 1/8" balsa sheet. The firewall is only 3/8" plywood not cut with any other part.
The wood arrived today.

Oh man, sorry about the maiden. You have a very positive attitude (and vision for the future)!
