Richo, does the airframe comes with blindnuts preinstalled for the tailwheel installation? If not, what size do you use? I'm thinking M3 for mine.

Thanks!

Mine did not come with preinstalled blindnuts and it was shipped later I believe. I used M3.

As Parakos said, there are no blind nuts pre installed for the tailwheel. I found it easy to slip blind nuts in through the rudder post.

Thanks for the picture. May I please see how you did the top?

Awesome! Thanks for the pics! I'm building a 2.3m CARF Edge 540 so I was looking at different methods of mounting the rudder hinge pin. This looks like the cleanest method.

More progress...

Some more shots of the progress. Almost done now, only cable routing and installation of the fuel tank cradle left I think.

BTW, the fuel tank cradle which is supplied with the plane is only about 8mm from the canisters when I test mount it in the plane on top of the wing tube sleeve. Will this be a problem? I mean regarding heat?

Very neatly done! The heat won't be a problem for the tank tray.

I will soon set up control throws etc. Do anyone have recommended throws for the 330SC or is it the same as for the SX? The elevators are enormous and should not need many mm to move the plane around in the air.

Regarding CG, is it 90-95mm from wingtip leading edge? Will only be flying IMAC.

Control travel and expo is such a personal thing, though yes you can use the SX figures.
I have set up a couple of these now and they only require a tiny aileron mix and 10% ish up elevator with rudder.
95mm on the balance is a good place for you to start, if you like neutral feel in pitch you can go back further even for Imac, its quite stable in pitch. I have my 2.3 330SC set for 3-D and it tracks really well in sequence manoeuvres.

Parakos,

Sounds like you're getting real close. When is the IMAC season in Sweden?

We have our first contest this weekend.
