Eventually it’s all going to go wonky and you’ll have so much fun flying it you won’t care

I’ve fitted top and bottom wings and set the cabaines when happy with their alignment fitted bracing into position

Laser 180 are currently in stock it would be a good choice,,, but you will need to get your skates on if you want one

Hi Adrian,

The Svenson Stampe has a one piece bottom wing, the top wing has a centre section fixed to the cabaines and has two wing panels that plug in to it. And it ushally has a enclosed canopy that spreads across both front and rear cockpits

The Precedent Stampe has one piece wings top and bottom and can be in single or double open cockpits

Im not that familiar with the power output of the Satio, but It will prop be ok as the Stampe’s seem quite happy on a broad range of engine choice

Thread: what type of battery pack for i/c engine trainer
02/12/2019 07:06:17

And the most important bit will be the correct type of battery checker.

Don’t use a lipo tester

Get a dedicated Nimh tester one that will load test the battery pack

I favour the Fusion one

Thread: Foam Wing Cutter

Contact adhesive on both bits,,,, leave the laminate on the bench and roll the foam onto it and use the offcuts of the blank to support if required.

a alternative was years ago to use paper...

think the Mick Reeves Disco fun plane was paper covered

It’s not my fault I hit you.,, height restrictions do apply.

perhaps you could crawl past on hand and knees next time you want to take your dog for a walk

I’ve been using Blendum tape on some smaller sheet depron models

Good idea Nick I’ve seen the LMA boys do it with piano wire.

but can’t say ive ever had any issues.

My next one I will be looking to make it as light as I can.

I really would like to get one under 7kg

That will be a challenge for me as I don’t build light
