Had a go at mounting the wings last night after drilling the incidence pins. Up to this point I hadn't truely realised how big this model is. Still need to couple the wing controls up to the servos & finalise the rx installation & it should be ready for its maiden.

Wing servo cover design taking shape on the 3d printer just building up the layers? Will be one piece eventually so you can screw servo to inside & bolt in place. Will also be printed in white not silver.

Well I’ve hit a brick wall trying to the hinge these ailerons & flaps. I should never had listened when I was told to cut off the living hinged surfaces ☹️
I’ve tried several times to re hinge them but they are bowed & buckled & whatever I do they just won’t sit on the back of the wing like they did when they were attached. I’ve looked at trying to get trailing edge stock but nobody does it over 3 foot long.
I’m at my wits end with it I’m no builder & to be honest it’s very nearly up for sale!

Martin, why did you destroy the hinge in the first place?

The hinge was too stiff Cliff after I’d glassed the wing I put up a post & was advised to cut the hinges off & tape them in place. I didn’t think they would have bowed & buckled as they did tho & how the gap has been routed out there is little to no gap to allow the surface to deflect how it needs to.

There has to be a remedy!
