Re: Twin Otter scale parts

Hi Dutch: While I would suppose someone out there makes windshield wipers, I'd go to Zeller's, Toy R US etc, and find a little car to get them from.
Call 905-685-5500 at Quality RC Field Products for lights, he has several different sets available in 4.8 or 6 volts, all designed to be run thru reciever, so no extra battery packs. Prices are fair.
The footsteps I made from 1/8 aircraft ply, cut to shape, drilled for 1/16 aluminum, then that covered with a piece of carbon fibre tube to get size.
Since I had already run the REAL antenna wire out thru the bottom, I just used an old antenna wire, and strung a fake one from fuse to vertical tail.
Same goes for the fuselage air scoop, balsa carved, then covered with Ultracote, I made mine functional to get some aire into fuselage for cooling batteries.FWIW flytwice
