I'd suggest you replace the Rx/ESC unit and two existing servos first, and get the plane working properly as 3-channel before adding the ailerons.

Next, decide where the aileron servo(s) would fit, and whether you'll need one for each side or can position a single one with rods going both ways.

I would do the actual cutting of the flaps last, after you know where the pushrods will reach, that will tell you how far over they will be. I'm not sure what to suggest for just how wide the aileron flaps need to be though. As long as you don't make them too small they should do their job, longer/wider ones will of course make it very acrobatic.

When you are ready to maiden it, pay attention to whether still like having the wing dihedral (Y-shape) or whether you want to tighten the struts down to make the whole wing more level, now that you can use ailerons to roll around.

I just stuck some Ailerons from a Park Zone Typhoon on.

It looks a little funny but it flies well. I cut them in half and added flaps cuase the ailerons were too much. It rolled really fast. I also stuck a carbon rod in the wing. With ailerons this big it rolls plenty well with the stock dihedral.

By the way, I have a wing that has one flight on it. Trade you for a Slo-V wing. Tried it on the Slo-V, didn't work so good, long story short. I'll be posting about that soon.

I don't know if anyone has tried it, but an idea I had....


Take the rudder servo, and put it in the wing, fix the rudder so it won't move, and use the servo from it to control the ailerons.

You would simply be changing it from RET to AET

FM, Yep it's been done. Actually was one of the first mods to the original PZ Cubs.

Until you swaped out the radio equipment, then you could go full bore.
