    I had this thread on the other site and not a lot of activity on it so I thought I would put it on TFC and see what happens.
    To bring you up to date. I wanted to build something so I found this 30% Carden extra kit some had sitting around for a few years. I am doing the TOC mods to it and I am making it a mid wing. I was doing pics but switched to vids. This should bring you up to date.
    I am about to start cutting the servo holes in the V stabs and could use a lesson in servo geometry.
    Also this plane will be for sale once it is built.
    Thanks James

    Old school Carden with some updated modifications. The wingspan is 89". I thought a mintor 75( not available at this time) would have been great for this plane, I hate cutting cowls up to fit motors takes away from the lines of the plane.
    How about that EF plane in video 2. That plane got a spanking and came back for more.
    Thanks James

    My question for the day is what is the correct relationship between the servo and the control horn as far as placement goes?
    Also post or phenolic horns who likes what and why?
    Thanks James

    Oh wow, I didn't realize the small Carden Extra only had an 89" wingspan. I was thinking 92 to 95", which would roughly equate to a 31 to 33%. The build looks great. It has been a while since I've done a kit. I made the mistake of buying and ARF years ago, man, the term "How convenient" is what stuck in my head, more time at the field! Da has the 60, but also a 70 twin coming, if it's not too heavy, might be good on that.
    Nice vid!! I love flying in wind like that!!! That plane and pilot kicked butt!!

    Did not have a lot of time this week to work on the plane had to do the paying gig 1st. I Did get the tooling made to do the servo cut outs in the foam and the sheeting is glued for the H Stab.
    101 uses for a soldering gun?
    Thanks
