Thanks Tyler, sound great. It will be cool to see 2 Nasty's come togeather in different foam. Here are some pictures and weights after the initial sanding. Any comments and suggestions are more than welcome. I will be using te Zagi 400 ( I hope ) Enjoy. Matt

Did you go with the 5mm?, and I am interested in your weights if possible. I took my sanded foam to work and checks the weights. I guess I got lucky to get the flaps equal in weight. I used a letter digital letter scale. I will take my electronics and motor tonight and get a weight check and I will know where I am so I can plan ahead. I don't think I can stay below 20 oz. Thanks.

My electronics equaled aroun 9.5 oz for a total with foam to be around 12.5. I can go lighter tho. Matt

OK, after seeing this cool foamy take shape, I decided that I wanted stronger flaps. I found this styro wing and not sure what it came off. I don't have the fuse. Looks like a cub. Anyone recognise the factory plane number printed on the wing? Anyway, I cut and trimmed and took it to my table saw and hand sanded it. I really like it. It will take some abuse because it is strong.I would like to use hinges(real) and not tape if I can help it. Anyway, here is where I am. Any updates Tyler? Matt

OK, after taking them flaps to the table saw to shave off a 1/4" and hand sanding them with a block, they came out great. Nearly just as light also. I believe I may use bamboo skewers instead of the carbon tubed arrows, for strenght and lightness. How would you hinge your flaps? Matt

Matt your smoking me and yours looks better. I am starting to regret sharing this thread with you. I was able to get a little more work done. Basically, I was able to do the cut out. I am waiting now to get some carbon rods to strengthening. I hope to have the rods within the next week and start progressing forward.

Matt, you Nasty is looking sweet! Keep it up. Can't wait to see it's maiden flight.

OK, but time for me to get smoked. I found these hinges in the shop. I really want to use them and I think the wing flaps will be ok with two red ones on each flap. I wish I had one more red one. I would be apt to use three on each flap. Anyway, here is where I get slowed down. NOW I am gonna see if I can find more material to replace the tail feather foam. The flaps take alot of abuse when things get wild. I will look for carbon rod myself. That is better than my carbon arrow tubes. here is a pic of some hinges I found. Thanks for the great comments. Matt

Tyler: Yours looks like a real 'Nasty'. I wish I had blue core to use. Things would have been alot easier,but, I am stuck shaping my thick foam. I may have to find me a Zagi 560 before it is all said and done . Keep up the great work. Matt

Well, I haven't got too much more done. I am waiting till I can get a Carbon rod to put in the wing and fuselage. While, I have been waiting I decided to do some sanding and cut the ailerons and elevator. I used 220 grit sand paper to put a round edge around the fuselage, rudder, front of the wing, and front of the elevator. I put a 33 degree sharp edge on the back of the elevator and ailerons.

It is hard to see the edges in the pictures, but I figured I would put them up anyway.

Matt, I have been trying to figure out the numbers on your plane, but no luck. What are they?

Default Motor & Prop Choice

Hey guys,

Have been watching both of the "Nasty" threads as i'm building one also.

What motor & prop choice will you be using?

I have grabed one of those Tower Pro Combo's "2409-18" from Hobby City with a 9 x 4.7 or 9 x 3.8 prop that came with it.

Keep up the good work

Cheers

NOZ,

I haven't figured out power systems yet. Hopefully, someone with a little more experience will be able to help you out. Until then, here is a great link to teach you the technical aspects of electronics.

NOZ, nice Nasty! It is nice to see one put together. I also really like the colors. What did you use? Lastly, don't forget to get a pic of vid of her maiden flight. :-)

Thanks again,

First I used acrylic enamel undercoat then acrylic craft paint I stole from the missus.

I did the yellow as it's dark grey Depron & I like the ME-109, I also only painted the top for visiblity & orientation reasons so it would give an idea on which way its flying.

Cheers

Well I've just come back from the field after putting my Nasty up for it's maiden flight.

I got one of the more experinced pilots to do the honor's to trim it out first. It flew beautiful with only very minor trimming needed & he commented on how well it flies.

I then put it up and being my first aileron plane I was a bit nervous but it I did alright and had two more successful flights before the wind came.

I have the D/R's set low 40-50% just until I get used to it. Although it flys great on 100% too.

So I can recommend the Nasty.

Cheers

I guess practice makes perfect, so its more for me.

Previous plane was just rudder & elevator, my aim is to get a Corsair so I thought I'd cut my teeth on a cheap to build depron plane first before stepping up.

NOZ nice work. I finally was able to get my carbon rods. Last night I cut a slot and inserted them. I am currently putting a band of tape around the edges of the plane to give it additional strength. I should have some pictures up later today.

Here are a few pictures of the recent improvements. I have inserted the rods, close to finishing taping the ends, and look forward to putting the wings/elevator to the fuselage. I am already anticipating problems mounting the engine and still trying to save for a TX. It might not get up this summer, but it sure is a lot of fun to put together.

For the other NASTY builders... Please get some flight pics. I want to see what I am working for.
