Hey pilots, happy hump day and welcome back for another installment of Pete’s Tip of the Week! Today we will be looking at the servo bay and walking you through a simple way to cut out the skin while leaving a portion to seal the edge. This method helps prevent pealing of the skin and creates a nice clean finish.
So without further ado, today’s tip : Cutting the Servo Bay
When cutting out a whole in the skin for the servos, it is a good habit to leave roughly 1/8 to 1/12 of covering. This extra covering can then be folded over to the inside of the fuselage servo bay. This creates a nice clean slot for the servos and will greatly help in the covering strength around the servo and keep it from possibly pealing.
Once the skin has been ironed down around the edges, you can now drill your holes around the bay and and install your servo.
Thank you as always for reading Pete’s Tip of the Week and check back for more each week!
