Albatros Rigging


Recommended Posts

Can anyone, any of you Wingnut Wings Addicts help (30 pairs of ears suddenly pricked up :D) .  


A friend is struggling with the rigging on his Albi; he's using Gaspatch Albatros buckles but needs to know where to place them.

Can anyone recommend or point me toward any reference material??

Yes please Darren, that'd be perfect!  If you don't mind (because it's easier to find that way) can you post them in this thread?  Thanks matey.

Ok first one elivator i used bobs style buckle i just had to do one, you could cut the ball off as close as you can to leave a little stub to glue in the hole you drill


This is the wing stabilizer both sides i drilled a small hole for the ball to sit in (see last pic on how i got them in the right places/angle ect)below


Wing route both sides the two middel buckles have had the balls removed a five minute epoxy glue was used the two outer buckles have been seated in small holes i drilled and the ball placed in the hole



This is the front of Udets DV has a field mod an extra front buckle so if yours has one on the front place as the top one but angle down towards wing stabilizer


And finally how i got the angles right a straight bit of tin copper wire, buckle glued in place after a minute or two the glue starts to harden and i can move the buckle to the right pitch/angle as the tin copper wire, i have a few minutes to get this right


Hope that helps
