Thread: Vintage Kamco Kavalier Build Part 3 Wing

All 128 pieces of balsa cut and glued to make a really strong wing, watch out for the horned beast lol.

Hi Guys, I've just uploaded Part 2 of my vintage (lol) Kamco Kavalier build, she's flying together and the pun's intended.

Hi Bob, good question, I think it was just the wing that was bigger but measuring the fuselage it's approximately 46in in length, if you have a plan to measure.

My New Year build is the Kamco Kavalier from the 1970's, my first low winger, I had most of the wood I needed so here's Part 1, the fuselage, thanks for watching.

Thread: How To Repair a Plastic Undercarriage
17/12/2020 17:21:41

The velcro idea is very good Piers, I like it. The u/c as it stands isn't really 'designed ' to pop out, rather a case of me not noticing it had come up out of its slot a little . I love rubber bands for the flexibility (pun not intended), it could be possible to fit a dowel through the fuselage as per usual practice but the sides would need an area of ply to help take the strain, it's only foam.

Thanks for the ideas.

A quick undercarriage fix for my HK Navy Cub, or any plastic-type u/c.

Very nice, was it a flyer Dwain?

I'm between builds so I bought my rubber-powered Spitfire out of semi-retirement and fixed her up with some radio gear, I can't wait to try her out at the next opportunity.

Nice model, nice flying too. Any info on hat camera ? Cheers

Yes, it's just a Mobius, they're about £60 in the UK, beware of fakes though. Mine has the wide angle lens which is good for hats for I find in the air it distorts the image a bit too much so it depends what you want it for, hat or airbourne?

Thanks guys for your nice comments, it's always good to see a project through to the (happy) end laugh

I've added some nose weight and the difference is fantastic.

I really enjoyed this build and this second maiden was just the icing on the cake, it's amazing how a pile of balsa can sit in a box for decades only to end up where it belongs ... enjoying the air beneath it's wings!

Hey Gary, great pictures and info there, you must get that Co2 model finished though, I'm looking to get back into Co2 next year, great fun.

No right thrust but the downthrust on the original plan was maintained. The cog was as plan as well but I've moved it forward for another go today, the result was quite encouraging, video to follow. Thanks for your and GG's comment.
