She is 70” long with an 11” beam.
Re the aircraft
lift I attach some more pictures,but in essence I have placed a normal servo
on its site and used an old windscreen wiper end arm drill
ed out the centre on my lathe
then glued a balsa pivot arm to it.
For the lift platform I drill
ed a hole in the lift,then glued in a 1/8th brass rod into a pre drill
ed hole.I then turned a suitable bearing
on the lathe
,glued it into the base and made the guide rods.It is important to ensure that the bearing
is at least a quarter the length of the centre brass rod or it will not move accurately.
When the servo
works the arm moves the lift up and down.
I did explore various gearing using plastic cogs but had quite a few problems with it.
This method is simple and effective.
