    Your craftmanship is second to none, a joy to study, just wondering have you created an unmix program for the stick so that a rudder input doesnt move the stick if you are Y leading from the normal servo out puts to the function?

      Alexis,
      The stick servos are plugged into separate receiver channels. The input for these channels are only the aileron and elevator stick control. There is no rudder interface input in this configuration.

        The instrument panel detail is progressing slowly. I did take inspiration from a Scale Instrument post in RC Groups back in April 2010 by Dean Gradwell. The instrument can and flange does lend a lot to the overall detail.

          A little more work is required on the instrument panel but it's time to clean off the bench and get back to the airframe.

            Started working on the elevators and hinging the other day. Finished up this morning making the pivot rod guide channels. Now to work on the hinge supports for the stabs and figure out a zero play drive system.

              That's very neat Gene.

                Thanks Gunny 11,
                Worked on the hinge supports for the stabilizer side of the tail. The plans show no support for the hinge aft of the spar. This was just not acceptable in my mind so changes were made. Vertical grain blocks were glued to the stabilizer spar supporting the hinge to near the pivot location. Spacers (64th ply) were placed on each side to center the 3/16 wide blocks between the radius plates of the elevator. When final assembly is made the hinge will be epoxy flush on both sides to the support blocks. At least that is the concept so far.
