IMHO the plan requires no modifications, and yes, the sides are 1/16".
That looks a very nicely executed model Peter. It should go like stink with the Cox on his snout!
|Thread: acro wot colour schemes|
Here's mine. I know it's only the foamie version, but the scheme would easily translate to a larger one.

"Is traditional building a disappearing art?"
No, the manufacturers of ARTF kits are busy building hundreds a day.

You won't go far wrong with 'The Balsa Cabin'.
|Thread: Multiplex Fiesta|
Corrr! That's a good looking beast Gary!
|Thread: Micro servo choices for a foamie|
Totally agree! SD100 servos are superb for what they cost and are high voltage capable, therefore they can be safely used with a 2s LiPo if required.
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
Bob, maybe the right aileron trim was due to the left wing being heavier than the right wing? Is the lateral balance ok?
Nice model by the way.

It's ok Andy, he's just a bit camp.
Hi Pete, firstly, Sharkface is most definitely a male so please beware of calling him a 'she', or he may well bite when you least expect it!
Secondly, If built as per original plan the downthrust is correct irrespective of the motive force (leccy or ic), or the amount of rc channels used.

|Thread: ripmax artf covering|
I'm not an ace flier by any means (wish I was!), but I can consistently land on the strip without trauma to the undercarriage, and I have yet to suffer a 'dead stick' with any of my electric powered airframes. I guess I've been very lucky so far. However, I do accept that no two ARTFs are the same and that certain examples will have an issue, some multiple issues, just as with any other mass produced product on the market. All that said, the ARTF Acrowot is still an excellent sport plane at a sensible price.
In all honesty I can't find anywhere that needs reinforcing on the ARTF Acrowot and as mine's electric powered the film covering should remain pristine for the life of the plane.
My Acrowot's covering was extremely well applied and still is wrinkle free. My only niggle is that you have to buy either a glow or electric mount system. IMHO both options should be included, as a lot of other manufactures do.
|Thread: Cardboard clone of a Funjet / Radjet|
That's with a 3s 2100mAh LiPo.
It'll be interesting to see what the final AUW will be. The original standard Funjet weighed about 620g (22ozs) ready to fly.
|Thread: Anyone near East Midlands Airport today?|
Turbo prop or jet Chris?
The only really large aircraft I see on a fairly regularl basis going in & out of EMA is the An-124 collecting R-R engines for shipment abroad, but that has a blue/white fin.
P.S. I'm guessing your a member of LEMAC?

I wonder what thoughts Ali Machinchy has on this issue.....
|Thread: Thumbs, sticks and a strange habit??|
Sounds more like an arthritis related rest to me.

Hi Peter, I don't know if you've seen these Multiplex plug moulds before, but they make an extremely neat and secure hot glue joint: **LINK**
I bought one early last year and it's a high quality unit which is very quick & easy to use. Some may argue that they're expensive products, but as the saying goes, "you only get what you pay for".
