Forgot to mention the glue Iam using for the complete model HK type insta-cure+

And when Iam trying to be patient Iam using the slower HK type HC-50-1100C and the thinner version.

Thanks for the updates.

For the CA, I'll use the ones from Deluxe Materials as I love their stuff.

I now have the carbon rods and the information I need to get started. Once I've finished the Acrowot kit that I'm part through, I'll start this.

Hopefully it'll be ready before we run out of summer!

Thanks for your help.

Any idea when the kits with 6mm spars will be available?

I am waiting to order one and get building ready for the summer(if we have one!)

Hi Ton

Ordered mine today.

All kits /short kits now have 6mm tip spars and ribs to suit.

Have you got a photo of the spoiler linkage? It looks tight as the linkage from the servo goes over the spar to the spoiler .

My kit has just arrived despite the weather. ready to clear the board and start building.

Has anyone used small magnets and a washer let into the ribs under the covering as a method of retaining the tips instead of tape?

Great to know the kit has arrived and looking forward to many build pics.

Was thinking about the same idea for using on a model.

Was thinking about gluing a magnet in the rib at one side and the other side a metal ring as you mention also in a rib.

Although the tape is not a bad and easy option because I only use a small piece at the leading edge.

I have a Red Eagle almost complete (currently covering) and have purchased the magazine today.

Any thoughts on the interchangeability of the wings? Could the new wing be used on the Red Eagle fuse?

Regards, Stephen.

You can modify anything to make it fit, but why should you do that.

Build them both and enjoy them both, that's the best option.

Or use the RedEagle as a tow plane for the RES-Eagle that's even more fun.

Are there any plans for the future to make a Res-eagle with an electric motor?

To be honest not by me, I like it the way it is.

But yes I think RBC is planning on making also an E-version.

Could you please clarify if the carbon rods need to be of the woven construction which is more rigid, or if the cheaper pulltruded rods are sufficient?

Info for all:

"A pulltruded tube has all the fibres directed down the length of the tube. This is stronger than woven tube in tension but has lower torsional strength and stiffness."

Perhaps the woven tube would reduce the possibility off flutter.

Hi Warren,

For as far I can see is it a pulltruded tube because I don't see a woven structure.

And yes it could be that a woven tube could be the better option.

Hi Warren

The rods in my kit are pulltruded. With such a small diameter the difference in torsional strength would be minimal and the cost significant.

My build has been delayed as I have to finish the kitchen!

I am planning to install a aero tow release similar to this courtesy of scale soaring UK.It is simple and light, I have used it on bigger models before with no problem. I will be using our club electric trainer as the tug
