Swizzle Stick and The Ohmen ordered as Sarik have the 10% off black Friday deal at the moment.

OCD? thinking

After a lot of deliberation I decided to construct the cowl the same as I did on the Ballerina.

Light ply plate cut and test fitted.

Now I have to make the battery hatch, before the cowl so that the cowl can be shaped to the hatch.

Thread: How did that happen
23/11/2020 08:08:43

GG yes

No reason at all not to get into the habit, it is what I have always done.

Steve J,

I agree with others that the TX on first off last is the procedure that should always be followed.

Another silent witness here.

Thanks everyone.

This is my sixth build and trust me I have learned so much, my first build had loads of filler which I decided was not good so my aim is to minimise the filler and ideally use none.

What next?

This is the stage when I start thinking about what to build next frown I am tempted by the Swizzle Stick for a quick build and winter hack. I like sticks yes.

But back to the front I think.

Cowl and battery hatch to sort out.

Cheers beer

More progress on the tail.

The part to fill the gap glued to the fin.

and test fit which shows that a bit of trimming is needed.

Which is obvious when the tailplane is in place.

That looks better.

It's just a demonstration that you know more about electric motors than I know about IC engines. laugh

16/11/2020 15:25:55

No you can't have meant 20cc?

16/11/2020 15:24:19

I have a Saito FG21 would that do?

Wow thanks for that FF. Just one question does yours do all those manoeuvres? Hmm thinking more to the point will mine?

Cheers beer

Progress.

Temporary T shaped to the fuselage.

img_20201115_143116527_hdr.jpg

Balsa blocks made up.

img_20201115_143235494_hdr.jpg

And sanded to shape.

img_20201115_151258270.jpg

A lot of work for two small pieces of balsa is my first thought, but then it would look ugly without them, even at 50' laugh

Cheers beer

Thread: Wing accuracy

Cuban8,

Wow that is excellent. A step by step guide, which is ideal for the absolute beginner and full of useful tips for the more experienced.

Cheers beer

Is this the Sky 40?

I can not see any problem as the wings have not been sheeted.

Thread: Fournier RF-4

Like I did on the Ballerina. For some reason I did not think it would work, over thinking it I think.

img_20201114_120223786.jpg

Just waiting for glue to dry then add the fairing blocks.

It's full steam ahead now or should that be full throttle now?

Cheers beer

Steve

Thanks Bob.

Next on the list is filling in this gap.

img_20201114_083218528.jpg

Marking out on a piece of scrap 1/4" balsa then cutting out, leaving a margin of error.

img_20201114_085627931.jpg

Next is working out the side fillet shape.

Cheers beer

Steve

My thoughts exactly Peter.

Glued up now.
