Douglas DC-3 RC Plane Part 2

Print

In this DC-3 build part 2 I am going to share with you how to make the horizontal stabilizer, steerable tail wheel and servo platform. I use separate servos for moving the rudder and tail wheel. They will be mixed together so they will have co-axial movement. You will need 5mm carbon tube with 100 cm length for horizontal stabilizer spars. I also use ready made plastic hinges for the elevators.
