Thanks Mike. I hope to have it flying by months end.
Do you have that posted on youtube, I would like to watch it if you do.
Yes at my YouTube page Mike Lang. I'm trying to post video here Mike. Do I just post Web address here?
I believe so.
Yes I do Mike. How do I post here just the Web page link?
It's a build thread of unboxing and build of tanks it's a long video so I broke into 4 parts.
Great vid Mike, can't wait to see it in the air.
Thanks Mike, I got my servos coming by Wednesday and hoping to get in air shortly after that.
I'll be praying for good weather my man.
I'm praying that I'll have a great flight and even greater landing. After spending a few years on this build I want it to land just as well.
A big beautiful bird like that is going to do great. Nice stable and smooth.
Thanks Mike. I'm headed to the LHS tomorrow to pick up all the servos, servo extensions and A123 batteries that I need so hopefully by next weekend I'll have it up and running and maybe flying.
Well guys I've got a small update of work on the DC 3. I've managed to get the landing gear covers cut and ready to screw down. I'm going to wait though till I get the servos installed for the Throttle and possibly the Choke as well.
This is the Picture of the landing gear hatch cover at the rear of the landing gear well.

You can see that it closes off a good portion of the rear opening and covers where the servos will be seen.
Package of goodies from AVF Hobbies, My Local Hobby Shop in London Ontario. The package contains, 11 Spektrum A6180 Digital Servos, 1 Life Source 2100mAH 6.6 V battery and 1 new heavy duty switch. They shorted me 2 Spektrum A6180 servos, 2 Life Source 2100mAH batteries and 2 switches.
Well guys all 14 servos are in and I'm working on the linkage to all the operating parts of this massive plane. just feeding thru the Throttle linkage took 45 minutes per section. So I've decided to post some pictures of where it sits now.
Front head on looking at twin massive 17CC gas engines
Sitting on the center section after landing gear was pulled to repair small defect in gear mechanism
Landing gear repaired and ready to go back in
Sitting on the tail wheel on its own for the first time
Looking forward from tail and picture of flaps retracted for first time on left side
Well that's it for now hope to have more working shots of ailerons and elevator later today or tomorrow.
I hope you're enjoying the results of this plane as much as I enjoy watching you build it. That thing is beautiful, its going to look great in the sky, nice and scale.
