And the 8711 servos for the stabs are in place and hinges epoxied in.

The outer bay has been covered over with matching white monokote and I trimmed the opening around the servo arm for a cleaner look.

The fuse needed to be opened up for the servo wire hole and also for the access hole that will secure the stabs in place (I'll explain later).

Re: BBT Assembly Thread - 35% 3W Extra 333 (Stage 3)

Hey Trevor, looks great. Does the fuselage and stab come with anything to protect the servo wires when they go through? The wires might chafe thru due to vibratons. Cut and drilled fiberglass could be a good saw.

Very nice plane. Daren

Hey Darren!!

I thought the same thing!! Actually, a good chunk of the fuse is Carbon reinforced on the inside, and it would chew through wiring in a few minutes!!!!

I picked up some plastic sheathing from ThunderBoltRc.com - do you think that will be enough????

Re: BBT Assembly Thread - 35% 3W Extra 333 (Stage 3)

Is this stuff like a spiral wrap, or like heat shrink? If its the spiral wrap it could still get caught in between, and not on the wrap. I was thinking of grommets, something you could probably find in the plumbing section of C.T., or in all those nuts and bolts bins at Parts Source.

Ya... it's the spiral wrap!! I also got some black plastic stuff from Canadian Tire that has a splice down the length - I'm thinking that may work better!!

Gromments don't work in some areas like on the fuse where the stabs fit against, because the stabs won't fit tight to the fuse side.

Thoughts????

The black stuff will probably be better. Your right about the grommets, I didn't think about the stab being tight to the fuse in my first post.

I'm thinking the black stuff would be pretty easy to install and secure as well.
