Tanga F3B Part 2

The wings have conventional control horns and are fairly straightforward to fit out. In line with current trends the horns are tiny to try and keep them inside the wing skins. This means the smallest horns that the 3150s come with have to be used and the clevises modified to fit other wise there is too much movement and too much slop.

An RDS option is now available

The wing root. 8% thick section and chunky wing joiner.

An aileron horn glued in place.

The hardware used to connect up the servos and control surfaces.

So what does it go like? Greg flew it for the first time at the last round of the Northern F3F Winter League series. The test flights and the first round of competition were very promising. Unfortunately another flier landed his model in the pits and damaged the rear of the fuselage and a V-Tail on the Tanga so that was it for the time being. This also meant that Greg was unable to compete in the Speed competition and show us what the Tanga can do.
