    awesome job bob, i’m late to the party but i’ve been following you for a bit. On the 3 systems, are you going to be able to move the wings (swept back?) I’m curious how you’re going to do that. Being a pilot myself, are you worried about weight or CG with all these systems as far as placement? That B1 is bigger than my miata lol..

    Anyway good job keep it up :) big thumbs up..wish I had the funds and resources to do what you are doing! Cheers!

    Yo, Bob. Got an idea. Since a fluid isn’t compressible as air is, (the reason you have a spongy response to pressure applied to the accumulator) a fluid will stop that and act as rigid as any mechanical linkage. Baby oil… the only reason you would not use it is: 1) chemical reaction to any internal parts of the pump, check valves or tubing. 2) Temperature changes that would affect the fluid consistency. Put a baby oil sample in the freezer and check it out for fluidity after sitting overnight. If it’s still fluid enough for the pump to move it, then it’s a go. Probably cheaper and easier to clean up than “real” hydraulic fluids

    Hey Bob would it be easyer to bleed the hydraulic system by loosing the retune lines to the tank and run the system while adding fluid fresh fluid to the resivor sort of the same consept of bleeding your brakes on a car

    Hey Bob, great show! All of them! Where did you get the hydraulic system? I am putting together a 1/6 F-16 and want to try that with the gear and doors.

    Nice setup with the hydraulics, Bob. Some really good info. As far as operating the front and rear bay doors, you could have another small valve block made up that would divert your OUT lines to either door set depending on the valve position.
