The inner part of the ailerons end about in line with the tip of the stabs if you sight down the back so that aileron deflections dont disturb the airflow over the stabs. In theory its to make things smoother. No good for 3D but then this plane and the Dalton ML are not built for 3D anyway.
I have a pic of the uncovered wing on Post #246 showing the two aileron positions which are totally up to the builder.
Honestly didn't notice much difference between one servo or two, but use at least a 300 ounce servo like the Hitec 7955 or Futaba 9157 or similar. Quality servos make all the difference on IMAC planes.
Thanks for the info!

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Just re checked and Rick's ailerons were 4 1/2 tip, 6 1/2 root and 35 in long. Mine are same at tip, 7 1/4in at the root and 35 1/2 long. Anywhere around there would work great. Hope you post your build

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Futaba BLS servos are amazing!! Such whicked response. I never thought you would feel something like that in the air but I did. BLS servos are brutal expensive though

I'm thinking about doing a thread. Not many Daltons being built around here. I admire the guys like Trevor who post everything because it takes a lot of additional time to do the documentation.

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Gordon... Please do a build thread... Always little tidbits we can learn from each other regardless of the kit!! I referenced Lee's thread, here, countless times!

Lee.. You really need a back-up... No better way to spend your winter than another build

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

Well its been a while since I added to this thread but here we go. Switching to RE3s abd a whole new radio system. First off is remove the old cans. Wow check out the hammering this one got at the back end! Guess I should check the silicone mounts more often, they were split and essentially doing nothing.

Re: Carden PRO Built by Lee

So Brendan and I marked off for the extra RE3 length and added a little extra in case I go to a 170 After removing the sheeting I used my handy foam wand and cut out the foam. Now its ready to line with 1/16 balsa sides and bottom. I will be making new mounts for the pipes. Ant suggestions are welcome.

For mounts Lee, may I suggest the TBM mounts with the o-rings, they hold really well and even keep the coupler from slipping . They also allow good air flow. Here is the link
