Default Jack Stafford B24

Hi trying to find out info on how the Jack Stafford B24 fowler flaps work photos of one that works would perhaps help or is there a better way of doing it rather than all the bell cranks etc ,ie 1 servo per wing .Any help or guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks Dave

If you have the plans, the flap mechanism is in the lower right hand corner just above the title block. You could use separate servos to operate the flaps. If you use 2 nine gram servos per flap you could eliminate the linkages all together.

Default B24 Flqps

Hi Many thanks for the reply I eventually worked out the mechanism that's shown ,rather 70s ! I had thought about using what you describe, but the servo throw was the problem I have come across some liniear type servo control from the net and they have the desired throw and and can control the range with the transmitter ,bit expensive but have also made my own version of the robart fowler flap hinges to the correct scale now setting everything on a jig to make sure it all works.As said my father was a flight engineer second pilot on a mk v1 Lib KH331 mainly and have found some info and photos on the net which is giving me the urge to get the model built . Have you built one yourself, was it electric or ic power and if so how did it fly ,have noticed everywhere to keep it light which I am doing .Many thanks for the reply. Dave
