Thanks for the pics Geoff the Sonny is looking great.
Sorry to see the tail is not strait will you try to correct that, or will you leave it like this.
You could submerge it in water and straiten it on the board and let it dry for a few days.
Would love to see some pics of your build.
For the wing best is to make the dihedral twice as much as on the plan.
|Thread: RBC kits, Avia BH3|
For some reason I missed this post
Yes would love to see pics of your Avia and is it flying already
|Thread: RES-Eagle Glider RCME March 2018|
Thats great and look forward to see some pics of your RES-Eagle.
Hi Steve, made some more pics hoping this will make it more clear.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The kit is ready at RBCkits
Great, look forward to your build pics.
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.
Sorry that will be my mistake, because on the file I told RBC it should be 4mm, but on the drawings its 6mm.
But to be honest 4mm is a better choice, because you will have to send less and only need to make the chamfer from the rib to the trailing edge.
Here is a detail of how it will finally look like on your model when its sanded into shape.
Hope the pic makes it all clear.
Hoping to make it more clear here a little detail on the reinforcement.
This is how it should look like with a 6mm spar.
Here is the detail on my RES-Eagle which is with the 4mm spar and reinforcement on top.
Yes it looks like the scale of the servo is not correct, because it should be a 9 gr servo. Thanks for mentioning.
Here's a pic to show you, more pics later.
No the leading edge will stay the same 4mm.
Will come back on the two rods.
For all, the file for the 6mm rod is send to RBCkits so ask for the modified version of the RES-Eagle.
Outer wing panel
Peter, thanks for selecting the RES-Eagle for your next project.
You can modify to 6mm using a file which runs from 4 to 6mm, it works fine and holds the hole in the centre.
Fixing the rods were they meet, is reinforced, with a small piece of rod chamfered and glued on top.
For all who are interested in the RES-Eagle cnc set for RBCkits,
Sorry should have done it earlier but will modify the file for RBC to 6mm, so new sets will hopefully have the modification for the 6mm carbon spar.
When you will use the 4mm spar it won't be a problem but you need to make sure to keep the speed down.
I had the flutter in a dive and one time on the bungee, when I pulled not enough elevator and let the speed to build up to much. But that was on a RES completion bungee, not the red silicon bungee from Hobby King which I use most of the time.
Don't have a lot of building pics because I went a little to fast building the RES-Eagle.
But still have some so here we go.
Some more pics lateron.
TP, Iam sure it will do fine on the dunes, on a relax summer evening.
The wings are designed for low wind, so be carefull on a slope.
