By "mus'donkey" do you mean the P-51? Yep still got that one. I've even added a canopy, spinner, landing gear, rudder control, and upgraded the paint job.

There's a few new pics of it here:

Thanks!
WoW! Neat! Great work! I tried to look at details on the web site but it never would load the enlarged pictures.

Sorry guys.
The enlarged images load from my FTP server (my home PC) because it's way cheaper than buying web space from my ISP. When my home PC is off, the pics won't download.

I should start leaving it on until I get a dedicated server for my FTP.

Oh that's why I can't see them either. Your making me want to mine out of the closet and do something with it.
Very nice conversion on the Mustang too.

Try nearlyfreespeech.net for your hosting. I gave up hosting mine when I switched ti Cox and got all my servers blocked. But NFSHost has been so good I'm glad they did block me I might pay $10 every three months and that includes a lot of email forwarding.

Ok, I got the correct cable. With the multiple bends in this wing, pushing the correct size cable through the tube was straining my single Eflite S-75 servo. I should get a bigger servo, but I'm trying to watch the budget, and use parts I already have. So I set up a dual servo system.

In hindsight, I probably should not have used hot glue to install the aileron control tube. The heat could have warped, or changed the inside diameter of the tube in some places.

In any case, it's good to go now. I have to wait until Monday to test it. The park I fly is a ghost town all week, until the weekend when it turns into a mosh pit.

Thanks!

Phil
