I really like Multiplex’ models. Building them are very straight forward thanks to their high quality. All parts fits very nice and the manuals are very detailed.
Easy things first. Preparing servos.
Glued in place.
Control horn glued in place.
Push rod mounted. So far so good!
Carbon fibre rod glued in place. Make sure that you’ll have equal amount sticking out on each side. Otherwise you’ll find it quite difficult to mount the wings :)
One wing done – one more to go!
A lot of things have happened here. The best way to find perfect CG is to dry mount all the electronics and components in the plane.
After recommendations from RCFlight I decided to go for the Turingy Heli 3700 kv motor. Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate it. The ESC is a Turnigy Plush 60A that I had laying around.
A little bit of soldering had to be done on the ESC.
Mounting one of the vertical stabilizers.
Motor mounted on the plate. I used thread lock on each screw.
I cut the top part of the fuselage into smaller parts to get a less complicated mount of all the electronics.
Mounting all the electronics from rear to front.
Multiplex canopy mounts. These ones works great and are very light weight.
A little closer to the front.
Next part glued in place.
I think you’ve all seen this picture before.
The GPS-antenna of the EZOSD can be quite complicated to mount perfect unless you take it out from the shrink wrap of the OSD. It’s a very simple work. Cut the shrink wrap open and carefully remove the GPS-antenna. Change the cable between the GPS-antenna and the EZOSD (it’s included in the kit) and replace the old shrink wrap with a new one.
Servo cover makes the plane look more complete.
This was probably the most difficult part of the build … I don’t like to make to large cuts into the foam :)
I thought a lot about how to make a good, low profile camera mount with pan. My solution was to CNC-route two parts out of 4 mm ply. The smaller of those two is just a distance to make the servo less visible.
Bottom side of same parts.
The two pieces are glued together and has a great fit.
Hitec HS-65HB put into place.
Can you see the servo? :)
Servo arm …
Preparing the camera mount to the servo arm.
Only one thing missing …
Pan – Completed!
ReadyMadeRC 3S 2200 mAh battery mounted.
Pan glued on the fuselage.
Another picture of the same thing.
Mission accomplished! Can’t wait for maiden flight!
