Acrostar mk2 XL UPDATE!!!

The delivery of series product of Acrostar XL has started and here are some additional tipps / information.

The wing tube which is included in the kit, was changed due to my wish. More specifically the wall thickness has been enlarged to get a stronger tube. The new tube is also used by the manufacturer for another airplane. So It could be possible that you need to cut the tube around 10mm.

I recommend to modify the tail wheel as shown on the picture. Just one washer and no lock-nut between the bracket  and the wheel.

If you use long servo arms, it is useful to install the ball link below the servo arm. Otherwise the ball-linkage will touch the servoarm if you have big deflections.

 

I recommend to tape all control surfaces with flexible, transparent surgical tape.
The result is a much better effect of those functions.
