Ken, take a look on RCScalebuilder, there is a lot of info and a lot of good ideas on the Hurricane flap system in Brian Taylor Plans section.
Keep us in the loop.

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

Thanks all! Since I do not plan to finish this bird until spring 2015, with your help the single servo flap system will be a given even with the removeable outer wing panels, ......I had a paper clip around here, where did it go :>)

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM



That looks normal in that view, but given the angle of the wheel to the strut and strut to the wing, it looks mechanically "off". Does it fold into the wing normal, or do the wheels cant on an angle when tucked inside the wheel well?

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

Thanks re the photos. I don't know what powers it but I can find out if needed. Looks like he's using 4 servos in the wings.

You are right, the undercarriage will be at an angle when tucked in, however Sierra giant scale does sell Hurricane gear that will twist the leg 15 degrees when retracting, I just do not want to spend the $310US, maybe I'll watch the ads for a used pair, though the Sierra are very nice gear!

Thank-you! I'll need a pivot point to account for the dihedral in the outer wing panel.

thanks for that post Dave, I was just going to add that the flaps were not piano hinged at all, but had several hinges as shown.

The wheels will indeed fold "out of level" when up. Because the wing is so thick that doen't cause a problem with the wheels, but you will have some compromises to make with the wheel covers. If they are flush when up, they will point "front in" when down, not lined up with the wheels....they will be off by 15 deg. I am still playing with my geometry set to try and figure out how to rotate the covers...

For a lot of reasons I had quite a few "issues" with my DT-A, but it'll get up this spring. I put a DLE 35R on it, and just finished hacking out the 2lb 14 oz of lead needed to balance the thing......gorgeous plane tho, and I sure hope it flies like it looks....

Re: Hawker Hurricane Mk I by ESM

I should have said Torque Tube! lol. Certainly old school, but effective. For the pivot point, I'd take a look at RC Boat Universal joints used for the prop shafts on outboard rigs. Super cheap, and slide right over the steel rod. Then a pile of brass tubes, cut to the required lengths, to serve as bushings.
