Plans, Projects, Building and Flying Tips / Fokker DVIII Build (update)
« on: October 28, 2017, 08:28:05 PM »
I won a 1/3rd scale Fokker DVIII at this years giant scale and have decided to build it. I decided to do the wing first as if I screw this part up there's no need to continue...lol  :P  The  DVIII has a unique wing in that it is flat on the top and tapers on the bottom so it is recommended to build the wing upside down I used an old hokey stick and some weights to keep things aligned while gluing, hey it worked. lol  :P  other than that it's pretty straight forward, the wing is split in the middle so you build one panel at a time, so far so good but man this thing is big.   :o :o 8) :P ;D

But CRAP DRATS RATS AND FUDGE!!!!  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Well it seems common sense has finally won over silly bureaucracy, a court has ruled the FAA can't make anyone register their models.

General Discussion / Gord, Gary, help! (Update) SUCCESS!!
« on: February 04, 2017, 10:12:39 AM »
 Ok so i have the Lemon hooked up with Flaperons switch 6 on, with switches 4 and 5 off  I set it up and all is well, But! with switches 4 and 5 on to enable the gyro the ailerons move in the same direction.  :o >:(

Edit: The only advice on RCU is to either get another servo or turn off switch 6 and go with one aileron on the Stabilizer, which is said to work fine.
