Remotely Controlled Model - Page 2
Soldered solder-sucking wire to the 0.100" spaced
to improve contact with the 0.065" wide brass slip rings.
Added two leads to
provide the means of disconnecting one servo reverser lead.
To rout/grind groves for the screw heads used to secure the blade on
the tube, I had to disassemble the blades. I took advantage
of that by adding sewing machine oil to the blade hinge tubes and the
blade axle during assembly. Note the telephone connector on the right.
It is used for testing and for keeping the swivel connector from
accidentally being pressed into the tube.
Dionysus Design (clint.lazzari at dionysusdesign.com): "The
signal wire is the yellow one and this would be the best one to cut if
you can only cut one, and the ground (brown wire) should always make
the first connection and break the connection last." Electrical tape
breaks the orange-yellow lead of the servo reverser when the
normal circuit is made.
The solder sucker wire was easily bent by accident, and had to be
constantly straightened, which gradually frayed the ends, so I soldered
the ends (not shown).
Having five leads on one connector and three on the other interfered
with the mechanics, so I had to split the double connector, and glue
each to a regular connector. This still interfered with the
mechanics, so I shimmed the servo. That provided enough room for the
orange/white lead to contact the blade axle, and the constant
connection (green wire) to contact the blade axle.
