Default E powered conversion for Bird of Time

I have an illustrated construction article on the Bird of Time with an Axi motor. Can I and how do I post it to this site?

photors,

Welcome to Wattflyer!

If you can save it as a PDF file or txt file then you can upload it by going to the "Go Advanced" button under the message box and click on "Manage Attachments" in the "Additional Options" section under the message box and then select the file to be uploaded. This will have the file as an attachment to your post. You can also upload zip files depending on the format of the article.

IS that the Bird of Time kit? I'm building one for E-power and am having a terrible time with Fin and bell-crank area and what goes in there? The 2 sets
of formers( R4 & R5) look like they get built inside of the built-up fin area???

I have currently built 3 BOT electrics. I have written a very detailed, illustrated construction article. It is written in Microsoft Publisher and I dont know how to send it by e mail. I can burn a CD for you. Please send a name and address. No charge

PS Upon re-reading your post it appears that perhaps you are using the wooden fuselage. All of my models used the fiberglass fuselage. This kit is so cheap that I really didn't want to spend time building, as the modifications took long enough.

Multiplex EasyGlider 4 is my favorite currently. It will fly for as long as I can stand there with just a bit of lift.
