      I had to make a bracket to house the servo's for the launchtubes, took some stock aluminum plate and bended the right shape, those white strips of evergreen will be used to fasten the servo's.

      Took some broken servo's as a dummy to see at which position they had to be placed.

      Bended the rods for controlling the launchtubes, it's a tight fitt around the control switches but enough room is left for moving them.

      Battery pack and levelkeeper are placed inside, made a small charging plug so i don't have to take the battery pack out during charging.

      From left to right, levelkeeper, battery pack and the charging plug.

      For now i have to wait when i have the servo's, when arrived i can start building up the rear bulkhead and the front bulkhead and start testing my contraption.

        All cables are tied together with small T raps, i like to keep things tidy, that ESC i ordered some time ago as a test, it can handle up to 10A, BEC 1A, the horns of the servo's are not yet fastened, this will be done when i know the exact position with all channels in neutral.

        I did mentioned about linking up the SAS float at the front , don't want to peel the tube off each time, so i've designed a watertight airplug which i have to make on the lathe.

        This is not needed for the rearpart, i only have to adjust the length of the tubes.

        Before i can start testing the SD i have to take out the SL8 receiver from the 212, don't know why, but my contraption with the old receiver and shadow programmer is dead, in a way it's better, the receiver was allready a bit of a risk.
