Thanks for your interest Chris.
I've investigated the start up sequence on a few Lanc videos, and it does depend on who's flying the plane, safety on the day. The most common is (if looking at the front of the plane with number one on the left) 2,1,3,4. For me I'm not that fussed about sequence, it's all about putting on a show for the model show audience. At the moment sequence will be 3,2,4,1. This is also due to the fact that I have to add different weights to each propeller so as to get the smooth shutdown right. Nothings ever easy. Presently just blue tac stuck to the props and they're not balanced that well.
Also the problem with my prop rotation, the motors i'm using are pulse width modulated and I don't believe I can reverse the polarity whilst running load resistors on the negative side. I could be wrong. Each negative wire is wired separately onto the cct bd and the positives are joined to a common voltage rail. Might do a bit of reading to see if there is an easy solution, otherwise they'll be left as negative thrust engines 😉
Wings are now out of the paintshop. Fair bit of touching up to do before they're good to go.
On a break for a couple of weeeks. Then we'll get stuck into the wing wiring integration into the fuselage and start on the fuselage painting.
