Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale

Hi yes spoke to them this morning,

What was you reason for going the laser cut route,,,

I can see the point if you have smashed wings.

and can see that the laser cut spar is nice,,

its not a cheap option.

The following

measurments have been taken from a part built Precedent Stampe I purchased a while ago,

Is the piston out

Or you could set the nut on the crankshaft at the end And gently tap it in slightly with a mallet,

oh is that the time

Have been making some bits for the rigging wires.

the long piece screws to top of bottom wing, and will exit either side of the fuz.

two flying wires will go to the front top strut brackets.

I still have the rear top brackets to make,

I recall Cymaz using wings or parts of wings cut by Falcon Aviation.

i am intriguied as to what the difference is between the new kit and the Falcon parts,

I still have a origional die crushed kit that I have been keeping for prosperity,

I do fancy the look of the laser cut parts,

Have you tried knocking it on further with a deep socket or bit of tube

Hmm there’s many a Stampe out there with out rigging,and it was Not fitted as standard nor is the new kit.

I did ask as the display model at Slec stand Does have rigging, I was interested as at that point I hadn’t made the brackets,

these have all been made

my lad did a loop at full throttle with one that had no rigging and the wings snapped..

But this was on a very old beaten up one so no real supprize

I was fly with a chap who has a really nice example of a Stampe, up front is a SC four stroke Don’t know size, it to wasn’t fitted with rigging.

Can agree on cabaines being removable..

I have another Stampe that has suffered a crash and the cabaines are slightly twisted,And a small bent where it disappears into the fuz.

To awkward to straighten,

I plan to cut all the cabaine wires and slide brass tube over them and jig the wing into plane and silver solder the tubes to the wires

09/08/2019 14:05:22

 

I really dont understand why there's no lift support, the cabaine is fastened to the fuz,the ply plate is bollted to the cabaines, the top and bottom spars arew glued to the ply plate, perhaps with a shear web inbetween

 

is it because the diheaderal has to be fitted at some point

 

Mine would balance better if I had a Laser 180 Petrol,,

just wiping the rain from the naughty step,,

but Jon has just rebuilt my glow 180 and it does run sweet
