Rigging my F-5b

As some of you know, I'm in the process of completing an Air Magic F-5b. This time, I decided to try and do a neat job of it. Just thought I'd share some pics with you.

The first pic shows what's up front. That's an Ultraprecision sequencing gear/door valve on the right. Keeps the doors closed while gear is lowered. They work great. Hidden from view under the platform is a Custom Electronics "Perfect Switch" voltage regulator and on/off switch. I've been using this regulator/switch for a number of years now and love it. Of particular note is that if the switch fails, it does not turn off your system!

The second pic shows the wires and air lines going from the wings forward, under the intakes, to the nose section. There are two servo wires and five airlines from each wing, plus the elevator servo wire on the left, and the rudder servo wire and battery wire on the right. All six wires (the ailerons are Y'd) go under the right intake, and five airlines (after the tee's, retract up, retract down, door close, door open, brakes) go under the left intake.

I'm hoping to get the maiden flight in on the F-5b this weekend at the Maine jet rally. Will let you know how it goes next week.
