Screw.

Just a quick update today.  The weather this bank holiday weekend has been stormy and not ideal for flying.  Despite this I had a quick attempt today but Lady Luck was not with me.  After the Mini-Titan crash last week I gave her a maiden flight and what happens a minute into the flight? Yep the rudder linkage comes off the tail servo – queue fast pirouettes and mating of helicopter and ground.  Joy.   Back to the workshop..

Align 510M metal gears

Align 510 metal gears.

Talking of the workshop I have now started fixing the Protos after it’s latest attempt to mimic farming and plough a giant furrow in the ground with it’s nose. All three Align 510 servos on the Protos had broken their internal gears, but looking at the web shops most of them are out of stock of the plastic gears (£4.50). Fortunately Align now do metal gear sets for £14.50.  More expensive but at least they won’t break so easily and mean I have to take the Protos apart change them.  I have therefore ordered a set to see what they are like.
