Click on the UNDERLINED items below for illustration.
Disassembles into 9 piecesfor transport and access, with a 3-piece fuselage and a 3 piece wing with removable nacelles. The cockpit is removable for convenient detailing. The bottom of the fuselage (the "weapons gondola") is removable for air system and radio access.
Separation points are scale.
All control surfaces are removable.
No control systems are disassembled when the parts are separated, just servo plugs and air line quick-disconnects.
Engines and nacellesare built to line up without additional measuring or jigging.
Allservos and control runs are shown on the plans.
A completelyhidden, simple aileron actuating mechanism is shown on the plans. The aileron and flap servos are in the clear when the outer panel of the wing is removed. All other controls are hidden, too.
Atwin rudder actuating mechanism that really works is detailed on the plans.
Allservo access is provided for, and the servos conveniently remove with the assembly sections. Elevator and rudder servos are in the clear when the tail is removed. Wing servos are in the clear when the outer wing panels are removed. Throttle servos are in the clear when the nacelle tops are removed. The retract servo is in the clear when the weapons gondola is removed.
"Fowler" Flap actuation and parts are shown on the plans. They work the same way the ones on a Cessna "Citation" jet do. It is estimated that they are 20% more effective than the plain flaps used. Both the plain and Fowler flaps are double slotted. (The Cessna's aren't!).
Balance informationis shown on a separate plan.
Assembly jigsare shown on the plans, and how to use them is described in the instructions.
