Planes Bikes and Automobiles

Seems a good idea to put all of the above in one place.

Spent this morning fitting High Torque servos to these wings. Because of the surface area of the ailerons, each wing needs two but because they are operating in opposite directions, its best to check the set up is working in tandem before proceeding any further.

Re: Planes Bikes and Automobiles

always made sure that when riding my tandem that the torques were very very high thus ensuring the passenger always followed close behind?

Re: Planes Bikes and Automobiles

My late OH would have got on very easily with you Spitfire, he ate & slept model planes. He made, over the years, far more that he could ever fly. He was a perfectionist & all were built properly.
His model flying club buddy sold all OH's planes for me after he died.

When you can't be arsed to pedal no more you can chose a Bomber, a sur ron, or one of these.
