Yet another Build log - Epp FPV Part 2

Electronics arrived today :)

Glued the back wing and shaped the foam for the rudder ( Is there any other way to mount the servo rather than gluing it to the foam?)

 

Installed the motor , which is a turnigy 35-42B 1250Kv, mount needs some hot glue

Then the ailerons , all servos are the 1800A

That's all for now , if u have any advice or comments please let me know:)

Since it's mounted in foam, hot glue is probably the best.

I have used pipe cleaners before, but you would end up tearing the foam in this case.

original packing instruction put the servos on the tail boom with lazer cut plywood mounts.

But havent decided if thats good or bad as of yet.

Mine came with mounts (for the tail boom) made out of a composite similar to that of the control horns.

I built mine like the instructions said.. just be careful with the spacing of the fiberglass disks - If they're not spaced right, the control rod will flex and you won't get enough movement in the control surfaces.

I know about the polywood mounts :) I think that putting the servos on the foam is safer for landing. Hotglue did the job ;))

I flipped mine upside down and canted them at an angle so they are clear of the ground during landing. If I remember I will put up a photo later.

would love to see some pictures of that :)

Here you go:

 

The rudder servo horn is a bit low, and will probably get stripped eventually, but the elevator is way up out of the way of the ground.
