Started with the VQ Pilatus Porter; 107" wingspan, 30cc in the Swiss Alps livery. White & blue. While researching the the plane, I discovered the American built version, the Fairchild AU-23. This plane was used for special operations in Vietnam. The Thai government purchased them from the US and also use them for COIN ops. Their planes were camouflaged in three tone tan, olive and dark green.
I was originally going to make this a 12s electric, then decided on gas.
DA-35 with Pitts muffler, Chevron 91 octane and Redline racing oil, 40:1
Savox servos in Ailerons, Flaps and tail.
Hitec servo for throttle

I have been asked a few times lately about the proper way to install a servo into your aircraft utilizing the grommets and brass eyelets. A lot of people don't actually know and there isn't much documentation on the proper installation procedure so I am going to detail it here.
It's actually very simple, the grommets only install one way into the servo, it's the brass eyelet that you need to be concerned with. For most standard installations, the servo mounting rails will be installed above the mounting surface. The brass eyelets have a small flange on them, this flange is what needs to face into the mounting surface.
The reason you want the flange in the eyelet to face the mounting surface is so that it does not crush the mounting surface when you tighten the screw down. The wide flange spreads the load out, you always want the flange to face the mounting surface.
When you tighten the screw down, you don't want to crank the screw down. There is 2 reasons for this:
1. You don't want to crush the surface the brass eyelet presses into and possibly compromise the mounting surface.
2. You don't want to strip out the hole the screw threads into.
All you need is for the screw to pinch down on the rubber grommet, this will compress the grommet slightly and force it to squeeze both down onto the brass eyelet and squeeze out onto the servo mounting rails. This is plenty sufficient for both small aircraft all the way up to giant scale airplanes
I got the engine mocked up and some servo's in. Made some control links and started getting some electronics installed. I set the plane up and measured for the landing gear. Waiting on the fuel tank and some other parts. Will start on the ailerons this week and get them working. I am going to use a match box for the ailerons. I will work on throttle linkage and choke linkage this week also.
I am getting excited about this plane. It's my first giant scale plane.
Just editing up the indoor vids from a couple weeks ago and more is on the way. These are the super-lite planes from Twisted Hobbys. When it's calm outside, they are a blast outdoors as well. The thumbnail is a little 3D Line joke from Nall a few years back.
