SHORT BROS NIMBUS SCALE 1:3.5**

Post by Jilles »

Time for a new glider project for myself. I always wanted to built a gull wing glider but not one that is very common. When Cliff Evans requested a scale 1:3 design of the Short Bros Rochester Nimbus my choice was made. Only one ever was built and is still somewhere but in a very sorry state.
Over time I will add to this built thread as I progress with the built. it will not be a fast built so be patient. Attached pictures of the horz. stab and elevator assembly to-date.

I want the tail bit first so I can check everything is square and level when the fuse is built.
For redundancy the elevator is two (2) independent halves each with their own servo built in the stab. Each servo will have a separate channel on the TX
