OLY III 2017

May 21 2017

Well here we are 2017 May already, have had a chance to look thru this kit and so far I like what I see, everything nicely packed. I might add though that the spars don’t fit into the rib notches, there’s at least 1/32 ” in the difference. In this day in age with Laser cutters I would have thought that getting these notches to fit the spars would be a pita.

I will file the notches wider, and I reckon they will have to be deeper as well, to suit the spar material supplied.

The one other item I have learned to watch for is warped fuselage sides. They are laser cut from a sheet and I have seen the straight edges top and bottom get a twist as much as 3/ 16. If that is one way on 1 side and the other opposite it makes for quite a challenge getting a straight fuse.

Stay tuned :)

Yes, tape on wings

(built up wing saddle on fuse)   requires longer wing rod.

+ servos in the spoiler bays

 

You could simply run the spoiler servo lead inside the fuse –

I would simply plug the spoiler servo leads to leads from the Rx.
