Hi lads, I'm really pleased you have all built this RCM&E free plan. If you could email me some high res pics (preferably 1Mb min and in focus) along with a bit of detail about the model and yourself, I would like to use them in a future column in RCM&E.

Mail your info to thatbloke@garritys.net

Cheers,

Shaun

Shaun or anybody, would you be so kind as to remind me of the correct cg on the Mini Blitz since I now wish to fit a larger battery and my plan has done a disappearing trick somewhere under the debris of a winter`s building/repairing ?

Shaun. Will try to send my pics directly to you but cannot guarantee the size. If no good then just bin them.

Nice!

Surely no one arranged this in advance, but there is another black & yellow scheme coming up soon

Regards,

Paulo

Hi all.

One of these little beauties is on my build list! Looking at the pictures of the completed ones, and now having looked over the plan can I ask question? Have any of you bothered to cant the fins over the 15 degrees that plan shows or have you taken the simpler route and kept them vertical?? Thanks.

I angled them as per plan. I think they are like that for a reason and not just looks. Very easy to do.

Yes, mine too as can be seen in the RCM-E feature. They are just decorative.. mine were vertical purely because I was on the clock to get them finished and it was easier.

But they do look better as designed.

The fins on my model will be canted as per the plan - easy to do with a template made of scrap balsa. At 90 degrees, 15 or canted inwards, I guess all model wil fly perfectly. With an anlge. it just looks pretty cool

The work done yesterday, late evening. I still have difficulties taming the solarfilm to avoid wrinkles, but it's the best I can do for now. Fins yet to be glued.
