Gate post broken

Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:42 pm by Gary M Jones

Right Here we go get that box open!



real low part count so shouldnt take long as as its EPP choice of glues is endless, so it will be cyno, gorilla glue and a dap of epoxy

I really like the colour scheme




More to come

Right first real part of the build,

Grab the "Backbone" out of the box and find 2 lenghts of flat carbon,

On each side of the "backbone" there are full lengh cutouts to insert the carbon into to add some more strength pics not that clear but as the Flash proved its siple and it works,



One each side and socked in thin cyno to get a good soak in

Next chop the main fuse in half like so



Now you build like a shokkie from the bottom up, now I did mess up here no real drama but i forgot about the wing spars, (and Derby scored which P`d me right off) and added the lower fuse first



Also note the landing gear plate in place

Have you flown this badboy yet Mark? It looks ideal for a "back of the car" model for flying from my Work carpark, and anywhere else the mood takes Smile The price looks pretty damn good too!

Cheers
Andy

Good stuff!

If you do a maiden down at the field, give me a shout. I need an excuse to test my video camera out on what it was really intended for!

Hmmm. Point taken. I'll try harder in the future! Wink

This camera does take some pretty good shots though! Actually, it is probably down to the operator more than anything.... afro
