More On Panther Wing Fold


We have had a few more questions regarding the wing fold mechanisms/assemblies and thought it worthy of more visual aides. Here are some additional pictures below, with a video of the wing fold process at the bottom.

Here you can see the aileron paddle joiner plates. This configuration allows the wing to be pulled out without disconnecting the controls.

Here you can see the wing in the folded position, and the paddle join plates are separated.

And above the wing is now pushed back in and resting on the horizontal stabilizer.

And here is a short video clip of the wing fold process.
