Converting to Dual Wing Servos

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey Everyone,

Got another question regarding the Goldberg Tiger 2 I am building, the kit calls for a single wing servo with torque rods to actuate the ailerons. I am planning to convert to 2 seperate servos for aileron operation, Because there is some negative viewing of this method and technically i believe that 2 servos in the middle of the wing bottom for the ailerons will virtually eliminate flutter and slop that may occur at high speed...How might some of you suggest I mount the servos between the ribs, there is no sheeting ...only capstrips.

Build a servo tray between the ribs. If you can mortice the ribs to accept the tray. 1/8 ply shuold work out fine. You will also have to make holes in the ribs back to the fuse for the servo wire. A good idea is to roll up some paper and glue it in between the ribs to pull the servo lead thru.

I think puting the 2 servos in the wing is a better idea than one. I would only go in between a third and half of the wing for your servos.
Hope this helps

If you are talking about putting two servos by the dihedral joint I think that you would have to make a servo tray that would be joined to the two adjacent ribs. I think putting in two servos is a good idea also then if you want you can use flaperons as well. I did this on a super sportster and it worked great.

Two servo's is the way to go but as one suggestion is have them half way out in the wing. If you think you will have problems with flutter you don't want to have them at the dihedral break in the centre. Take an aileron and twist it at both ends then take one by the centre and try again. You will know what I mean after the test.
If you have a computer radio that will do the separate servo setup then use 2 channels and you can combine to go flaperons. Otherwise you use a y cord and just have ailerons.

Thanks for the replies guys, I have installed the 2 servos in a tray between 2 ribs halfway between the ailerons on each wing half
