|Receiver and Servos:
( ) Is receiver securely mounted and isolated from
vibration? Should also be placed into a plastic bag to keep
fluids out of receiver (fuel).
( ) Are all servo tray screws snug against the grommets, not crushed.
( ) Are all servo arms and wheels secured with a screw to the servo drive shaft?
( ) Are push rods securely firmly secured to servo arms. If ball links are used are
peened on or was a drop of CA placed onto the threads to secure
( ) Are servo arms adequate in thinkness and material? Giant scale needs strong ones!
( ) Are the servo rails secured to the fuselage? Are they made from spruce, or plywood?
( ) Is the power switch in the aircraft mounted so it can not be accidentally turned off?
suggested that if you use a rod connected to an internally
mounted switch, you mount
the switch where "in" is "on".
( ) Are all connections secure? Did you use "twist ties' to lock servo plugs
( ) Is antenna in good condition w/o cuts, breaks and frayed wire exposed? Never, ever
a knot in the end of the antenna to affix to the fuselage or
( ) Was a grommet or fuel tubing used to line the exit hole in fuselage for antenna wire?
Never fold excess length of antenna wire back on itself. If long
and trails behind the airplane,
you should run antenna through a control horn hole to
secure it from loosely flying about
