Not so good news on the spine ... op to gloue back together OK - but now there is pressure on the 'cord' and nerves.

Tablets / Consults / Physio .... looks like a longer haul than we expected ...

Building like mad - keeps me from giving up .... but flying - haven't launched anything since early spring ... Already have a truck load of models to maiden.

You take care lass ..

Nigel

I Dont Know if you are aware of Gesara and Nesara, It has been put into law Globally, some Countries are already in it, Charlie Ward is the Spokes person for the Quantum Financial System, If Your not aware of it, Take it with a grain of Salt, Also look into Med Beds when they come out, It will be Free to use, Its 80 year old Suppressed Tech. Get to a Med Bed ASAP, This is Suppressed Tech, It will be hard to understand at First, take it all with a grain of Salt, better times are coming, Hang in there, Chellie

Default Got a little more work done

Got the wing Brace groove cut out for the 6mm carbon fiber tube, I put a 2" strip of clear packing tape on the bottom side, then pour in some 5 min epoxy, then the cf tube and the 2" packing tape on the top to seal in the epoxy and tube, makes the wing nice and strong, because I dont Intend to be Nice to this Plane Always clean Depron foam with 91% Alcohol to remove the release oil, agent thats used, or the paint, tape or glue wont stick to the foam very well, Ask me how I Know LOL
You can see the 45% cut on the ailerons, I will be using Packing tape for the Hinges on this plane, I learned to use the thickness of a T Pin on the control surface for a small gap so the control surfaces will move to 90% both ways. Ok Back to work

Build Review Elevator is Done

I got the Elevator Measured out and Cut it out, I am using 2 Different Airplane Pictures for Ideas and using the T L A R Method Its getting there, My Lipos already came in the mail, they are 1350 mah 25C Lipos, the motor I Am using is a Small 1800 Kv with a 30 AMP ESC and a 6x6 Prop, a 7x6 cut down to a 6x6, It should Fly very well I Hope dont let the little bell motor fool you, They are very powerful, the trick to making them last, is to cut down the prop shaft, they are to long to begin with, and slide a collet prop holder on it, the long stock prop shaft bends to easy being so long, also use a little epoxy on the wires and glue them to the windings, and use a little CA to glue the motor to the motor mount so it dose not turn in the mount over time, I Love these little power house motors and they are only about $8.00 at Hobby king.

Talking Got R Done

Got Her Done Just Needs Paint and Electronics, The Tail Feathers Took a While to Make and Fit, its done now on the Bottom of the Fuselage I Epoxied a strip of Bass wood, that gives me a skid and it also stiffens the fuselage, If its Not to Cold Tomorrow I Will Paint the Plane, I also used some Balsa strips on the Elevator and Rudder to Stiffen the foam, I Used a Little Epoxy to Glue them in place, Should be Good For 30 Gs Take care and Have Fun Everyone, Chellie
