Or am i totally over thinking it??? i have not glued the dowels into the harwood rails yet. what are peoples thoughts??

forgot to mention, these are the elevator servo mounts and obviously has two servos in it. (i went with JR 8911's everywhere- same as the USA 8711 i think)
Hello Bam Bam,

The plates and servo rails are more than enough to hold the servos in withought the dowls, just make sure you have good bond lines when installing them, I like to use Gorilla glue in areas like this.

I like reading Sensei's advice because I swear I'm going to take a shot at building someday soon.

Hey Craven, seriously, take a crack at it! You got unlimited advice on here and we should all be taking advantage of legendary builders such as Bob's know how! Ya just gotta do it! Best thing you could ever do!

Re: Aerotech 55% extra 260 build

Bam, I cant believe this is your first build. Big props to your work, it is looking very good. I would like to attempt a build myself (Aerotech Edge) as I am sure the amount of pride and hard work you builders put into your kits make them fly 10x sweeter. Plus I like the fact of not walking down the flight line and seeing 15 of the same plane, same scheme. Guess that is why I have held on to my Krill for so long...

I personally cant wait to see/hear that Mintor singing on a high speed pass down the runway. Make sure you get at least a video of that for me..

Re: Aerotech 55% extra 260 build

I will leave the dowels off then so as not to add weight.

I guess I will do a fast low pass for mr E, just don't expect your quality of vid!

You're already old. When you hit 35 all hell starts to break loose.

How's the plane coming BamBam?
Trying to catch up.
Lots of work, though it has been therapeutic.
