Slingsby Perfect build

Easy Built Models Slingsby freeflight to RC conversion continues. 

 
Converting a freeflight plan isn’t always the easiest thing to do. You need to think ahead.
 
I needed to be able to remove the cockpit top so I could install the Spektrum brick RX and servos. I had to sheet between the stringers to strengthen the cockpit area and then carefully cut it away. It was difficult not crushing the fuse while grasping it.
 
I needed to beef up the tail feathers and allow for them to be converted into work surfaces, elevator and Rudder. I added addition;a ribs to both the horizontal and vertical stabs.
 
Still to come I’m going to strengthen the wing mount area, and add balsa sheeting in the aft for the pushrod exits to the rudder and elevator.
 
It’s going well and she really light so I’m not worried about weight at all.
First picture is of the actual glider.
