X-Wing "Red 4" - The armature & mechanism

A hero X-Wing with motorized wings was something I wanted to do for years. From what I've understood they never get their mechanism working. So it was quite challenging to get mine working smooth !

 

S-foil armature

The S-foil armature consists in 8 parts. I designed them to be as close as possible as the original ones. The 4 "L brackets" are missing on this pic.

Assembling the armature

The L brackets hold the wings and a screwed to the S foil parts. Those S-foil parts are mounted on a 20 diameter pipe.

The mechanism

I know it's very messy and not very appealing but it works, and it works well ! I used 2 modded micro servos.
