Just got a kit for a Senior Telemaster to replace the plane I rekitted, and didn't get any info from the Tech Guy at Hobby Lobby, so I figured I'd go to the experts. Anyway, this will be the biggest plane I've had, so a few questions. I want to do bolt on wings, but that seems easy. I also want to use separate servos for the ailerons.
Do I need ailerons the full width of the wing, or can I shorten up to 18-24 inches? Will a standard Futaba servo be strong enough for the job, rudder & elevator too? I have an 8 chan Futaba TX/RX so I would like to add flaps, separate from ailerons. Rather do this than combine flaps & ailerons in the 'puter. Gives me more knobs to diddle.
I'll be powering this plane with an OS61 2 stroke from the last plane, and am wondering if a 12 inch prop sounds right? Maybe a 12x5 or so??? Looks like a 12 inch will clear the ground easily. Thinking that 11x5=55 and 12x5=60, so pretty close for power. Any other ideas???
Once again, Thanks for all the ideas or comments.
