    Right on Brent. Looks awesome. The Yellow Aircraft offset hinges give the geometry a really cool floating look when the airbrake is opened.

    Re: Another Aviation Design Scorpion Build Thread

    Thanks guys!!

    It is a nice looking plane when it is all together. The pearl in the paint with the carbon accents is really sharp. My only complaint in that respect is that they give you white plastic servo mounts/covers. Ultimate Jets offers some carbon replacements, but colour coordinated covers would be nice! Paint may be an option, or hydro dipping.

    Anyway, on to the vertical fins/rudders..................

    I had to find some smaller servos for the rudders unless I wanted to modify the plastic mounts. The best match I could find was a BlueBird DMS-390DMH. Another option that fits is the Hitec 5085 or 5087 servos, but they are a bit weaker than the BlueBirds. The DMS-390MDH are mini metal gear coreless servos that have a pretty tight gear train and reasonable power (5.4kg @ 6 volts). Enough for the rudders as they over-spec what AD/Ultimate Jets has prescribed. Really though, I thought all their servo recommendations were on the weak side for this size of jet. Maybe we are just used to over-powering our servo requirements.

    The rudders have aluminum tube/socket arrangements and slide into the fuse with a locating pin up front. It seems to be a good fit. Next is to drill a hole through the fuselage and tube/pin for the fins and tap for a flat-head screw to secure the whole deal.

    Doing good Brent.

    Can you please provide a link for the offset hinges you are using on the speed brake. Im going to use the same setup on the WetJet.

    And did the speed brake come separate or did you have to cut that from the fuse?

    Thanks

    I was actually given the hinges by a good friend..................not sure where you can get them, but I have seen similar ones on HK website.

    The airbrake was mostly cut out to shape. There were 4 connecting points to remove it. I was a bit nervous with the Dremel on that one. LOL!!

    Got the maiden done last week. It was a nail-biter!

    Apparently I should not have listened to my reference manual on the elevator throws......not near enough! The front landing gear mount was cracked on landing, but that was all. All fixed up with a stronger mount now and ready to go again with more elevator authority.

    Re: Another Aviation Design Scorpion Build Thread

    It sounds like you're referring to a discussion or thread about building an aviation-themed scorpion tattoo design. Unfortunately, without more context or specific information, I can't provide details about a particular thread or discussion on this topic. However, I can offer some general advice on creating a unique aviation-themed tattoo design featuring a scorpion:

    1. Research: Take some time to research different aviation symbols, such as airplanes, helicopters, propellers, or pilot wings, and scorpion imagery. Look for elements that resonate with you and could be incorporated into your tattoo design.

    2. Conceptualization: Think about how you want to combine the aviation and scorpion motifs. Do you envision a scorpion with airplane wings or a scorpion crawling on a vintage aircraft? Sketch out some rough ideas to visualize the concept.

    3. Consultation: Schedule a consultation with a skilled tattoo artist who has experience with both aviation and animal-themed designs. Discuss your ideas and collaborate with the artist to refine the concept and create a design that suits your preferences and fits well on the chosen placement area.

    4. Customization: Work closely with your tattoo artist to customize the design to your liking. Consider factors such as size, placement, color palette, and any additional elements or details you want to include in the tattoo.

    5. Review and Revision: Review the initial sketch or design provided by the tattoo artist and provide feedback for any adjustments or revisions needed. It's essential to communicate openly with your artist to ensure that the final design meets your expectations.

    6. Finalization: Once you're satisfied with the design, schedule a tattoo appointment to bring your aviation-themed scorpion tattoo to life. Be sure to follow proper aftercare instructions to promote healing and preserve the integrity of the tattoo.

    Remember that a tattoo is a permanent expression of your personality and interests, so take the time to create a design that holds personal significance and reflects your individual style.
