Yes, just sit them on top then gently sand the lot to give a slightly rounded profile on the tip

Hi Dave, Is it nearly 4 years old already, it only seems like a year or so ago crook

Yes, simply glue the cabanes in position. If you wish to add re-enforcement, keep it minimal to keep the weight down. Also, should something untoward happen crying 2 its best the cabanes break free without causing further structural damage to the fuselage.

Again, a balsa firewall will be just fine. If in doubt laminate with an off-cut of 1mm ply however anything more is overkill and again adding unnecessary weight.

Keep everything as light as possible and it'll fly like a peach - start adding the ounces and you'll have a mini pylon racer on your hands wink 2

Great idea with the HK blade mod.

Think I'll do mine - Ive plenty of battle scarred bits left over from "test flights" embarrassed

The couple of times Mine actually flew were not very successful, took off OK but having reached about 10 feet would not climb any further.

Any comments?

Was it the MK1 or the later version with pre-rotator ?. My early one flew like a peach until I retro-fitted the new pre-rotator head assembly.

After that I needed to pin the throttle and fly it like a fixed winger to get anywhere. Think it may have been a combination of the additional weight of the head unit and additional gubbins and maybe friction / binding of the head. unit.

Nice job...looks like racy time wink 2
