Song­bird Cessna 310

Model Airplane News - - AIRWAVES -

I am build­ing a Song­bird from the plans de­signed by Rich Urav­itch. I love this air­plane, but I have tried for over a month to fig­ure out the place­ment of the F3A fuse­lage for­mer. I am hop­ing that you could give me some as­sis­tance. Thanks.—Gene Aughtry, via email

Hi, Gene. Long­time con­trib­u­tor Rich Urav­itch has de­signed and flown a lot of RC air­planes, and his Song­bird Cessna 310 is one of the more pop­u­lar sets from Model Air­plane News. We checked with Rich, and he com­mented that the F3A for­mer can be dis­carded. It was part of the pro­to­type build be­fore he de­cided to of­fer the clear molded cabin that forms the re­mov­able hatch for bat­tery ac­cess. The hatch ar­range­ment was shown in the con­struc­tion ar­ti­cle and a photo ap­pears di­rectly on the plan sheet to­ward the right-hand side. If the molded hatch is em­ployed, two of the for­m­ers may be cut off at the up­per edge of the fuse­lage side. I hope this helps.—GY
