    Re: Skymaster Large F18

    MKS-599 servos on elevators.

    Exact same setup as the last two SM F14’s I’ve assembled so pretty familiar.

    Takes a bunch of shimming and adjusting but all good now!!

    Rudders done also. MKS-599 servos again. I replaced the stock hardware with good Dubro HD ball ends and Ti links

    If you’ve never used the Powerbox servo wire and connectors, you need to. About 1/2 the weight of normal wire and so easy to work with. Once you crimp these ends you will never go back.

    Found some clear HS tubing at Sayal.

    The pipes donít have much of a bell-mouth on them and the rudder servos are fairly close to the turbine nozzles so fabíd up some heat baffles. Feeling good about everything back there

    Re: Skymaster Large F18

    Hey,

    Where do you source the power box wire and connectors? What crimper is required? I make all my own extensions after having some issues with cheap ones.

    Thanks
    Steven
