Pack 7 - Stage 55. Fuselage frame.

Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

Stage 55 gives us the fuselage frame, and we install the tailwheel gearbox.


Check that the fuselage frame is straight. It may have a slight bend, which is a quite common with flat stamped out parts.  A gentle easing should straighten it.  It doesn't need to be perfect as the outer frames of the fuselage assembly (supplied in stage 9) will pull it straight.

Fi the tail wheel assembly that was constructed in stage 53.  This is fixed with 2 screws.  Make sure you use the screws with the coarser thread as there are meant for plastic.  


Push the servo into position in the gearbox.  It's just a push fit.


Now secure the gearbox assembly to the frame with 3 screws.  Make sure that it's fully located on the metal frame.


That completes this stage.
