Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

My first propper 3D plane -Katana

Post by Robert Piechulski on Thu Aug 27, 2009 9:43 am

After vissilble progress in my 3D flying - decided to go for something more serious. - Why not ?? - my blade dancer is still in one piece - just not very good when is windy.
Decided to have a go at our Katana (o gosh ...what a suprise ... )
The problem with all Kits is space...
So had to make big life decission and .... I moved laptop from my coffe table on chair next to it.
So here it is - my working bench
I prepared all professional equipment I could find.
OLFA knife
Sand paper and sanding block
Steel ruler
Few pins (don't tell my wife )
Glue (thin)
Plastic bag from Tesco, and after 2 late nights ~ 6 hours - here it is




another 4 ish hours, and everything is nearly finnished



Not bad for a first build Smile

Now - still didn't decide what color scheme I do want to use...
Nothing to fancy and complicated - after all - I'm at the very beggining of 3d flying - so it's not if I crash it - it's when ..
Thinking about something in dark colors, any ideas ? I've spent some time looking at google images of Kat's most of'em is white/blue/red - what about black ?
Have you seen anything like it ?
c'mon - guys
I'm gonna do shopping next week - so there is few days left
Cheers

Managed to find some time and dod some covering.
Never worked with film before - well last time I did any covering was 20 ish years ago on some gliders- with some paper - so it's not perfect - but much bettter than I was affraid it will be Laughing
Just must remember to avoid black color next time ...





Still can't decide of color for cowl...
but hope to finnish it before Skelm Cool
