Well folks I am back but unfortunately I have done nothing to the model as trike building has taken off and I no longer have the time.

So with this in mind and also that I wont get near it for at least 6 months I have decided to sell the whole kit. Radio gear, glues materials battery electrics etc etc.

Yep another unfinshied project goes on sale at less than it cost. Sad but needs must

So if any one wants to carry on where I left off please feel free to make me an offer before it either gets stored in the attic and forgotten about or finds its way onto ebay

Decided not to sell it and get off my fat lazy backside n get some more of it done. I am now in need of help. Someone told me about a club in Glasgow who hold building meets on a Wednesday I think it was. Who was it and where are the meets????

Yep they do let me out, well the missus does. What others dont know wont harm em.  :) :)

Tis not really the bad weather thats spurned me on. I am one of these folks who when gets a problem wont ask for help when I know I should.

My problem is now I am at the stage where I need to start fastening big chunks together and some of them chunks need painted first. Like the inside of the hull and inside floors etc etc. I am a little lost as to what to do next really and I thought that a little help and encouragement might get me back ouyt into my bomb shelter

Norry, thanks for that I will be in touch after this coming weekend as I am moving workshops.

 ^-^ folks Im back on planet tug. Moved all my stuff back into the spare bedroom after evicting the wet behind the ears lodger. So you can all expect some more build pics and also lots of stupid mundane questions.
Ill start here with. Is there a max length for the rods connecting the rudder to the servo. I would like to place my servo where I can get my big hands in to sort it when I break it. but this means the connecting rod will be nearly 250mm long.

As long as it doesn't flex too much and is supported, I run mine through tubing or screw in eyes, it should be ok.

Welcome back.

Quick question. How much rotation on ones rudders from left to right does one need. Just setting up the steering before I think about glueing the deck down.

Next question. The servo has more travel than is required. Is this adjustable? I dont want it to try and tear its self  out of its mounting if my big numb fingers go to hard on the radio

No it doesn't! If you want the ends of the pushrod to move less linear distance (i.e. for the rudder to turn less in each direction)  then use a hole nearer the centre of the servo disc, or one on the tiller arm further away from the centre - or both. Of course you could buy a computer radio and adjust the travel volume electronically, but that's cheating.
