I want to transport the plane without the wings or wing tube on the fuse. The wings are held on with a bolt up through the tube but I figured it may be challenging to locate those holes for assembly. Instead I put a bolt in thru the wing root accessible through the wheel well. I put a blind nut on a ply plate inside the wing panel. This is how its done on my Futura and simplifies assembly a great deal. I have a larger washer than what is shown here.

Norburn is still there and is owner/operated by Dean Collins. Keeping up the tradition of a reliable source but mostly stocks electric crap now.

Unfortunately, Larry passed away just a couple months ago.

Re: Aviation Design - Scorpion

I just wanted to post a neat little detail that Peter modified on the AirBrake!!

He did up a really slick hinge to give the AirBrake more sweep during operation for more of a scale look! I'll get a video of it in operation in the coming days

Funny how such a small detail can increase the cool-factor soo much

Re: Aviation Design - Scorpion

I also wanted to post a few pictures of the blue fuel line we are using in the big gassers and ideal for the turbines!! Amazing stuff because of how "sticky" it is!!! Once pushed in place, it needs to be cut off. And it remains very flexible!!

Also no need to use double wrap wire or zip ties... Just push on and forget!!

In fact, I don't use it on the short section for the filler plug/fuel dot, because it's so tough to get the plug off, LOL!

My buddy Jim Daly (scaleguy) imported 300ft of the stuff and this is his second big order of it! Send me a PM if you want some and we'll get you a price!! I bought 100ft of it and the price can't be matched!!

Re: Aviation Design - Scorpion

Nice upgrade on those hinges! Much better than the stock set-up as it avoids trimming the front of the hatch for clearance. A much nicer 'closed' look.

Got some color on mine today. Will post some pics tomorrow or early next week.

Re: Aviation Design - Scorpion

Trevor is doing a great job fixing my install.... I am afraid I might not ever get it back lol. He is coming over for negotiation talks tomorrow. Sean I finally got the pictures of the airbrake system.... Eric Dizenbach developed the system for me. All I said to him is I hate the knuckles on the airbrake and in no time he designed and built the hinging system for me. Thanks Eric. Sean call me in the morning I want to see your test pieces before you spray . Remember to increase your pressure and reduce by another 25 percent.

Re: Aviation Design - Scorpion

Peter,
Thanks for the tips! I'll sand it out this morning then look at changing the settings to get an even coat. If that goes well then I should have clear on before noon and can leave it over the weekend to pickup Monday.
