I had hoped to Willow it, but that my be to much of a test?

 

As to the hillside's, I am trying to make them move. The planes just need to be stronger, and I think they are getting there?

See what happens John, you make innocent post and all these people crawl out from under a rock :) just so happens it was a rock on the west face of Mickeys :). Best not mention the touch and goes on the west face of the Longman :)

Well I have failed on my attempt to up load some pics?

So I have sent them to Ian and I'm sure he can.

These are of my wing servo installation and horns plus fuzz ballast tube, i think they will make sense.

Thanks Ian

More details when we see pics

Hi John

  I hope that this works!

 

getting the pictures seems almost as difficult as producing the model:-)

 

I'll let you do thhe flying and the talking but I know the model is ahead of my thumbs!

Thanks for the pics post Ian

I have installed spectrum A7030 servos for ailerons and flaps, these seam to be good on spec and price.

And I have managed to keep all the linkages in side the wing skins, hope to have pics on these soon.

I have used the horns supplied for the flaps and ailerons, these fitted in well so keeping wing skin clean.

It was really nice to see Ian with his Willow 2 at the 4th & final rd of the Southern Winter lg at Whitesheet last Sunday. Ian flew very accurately and well, and his Willow 2 impressed. The model turned well, was very settled in flight, quick to accelerate & sounded very clean in flight.

I'm embarrassed not to have put my Willow 2 together yet, as I've had mine for some time :blush: .

You need a different F type and also to shave a few milli seconds off your time 

 

try F2.8 and 1/1000th - but that will cost you.
