I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Waiting on a header (bloody uk suppliers), and switches (bloody HK suppliers), and 2 can mounts that you will be cutting once said header arrives.

However ive just made a phone call and the right one is on the way.

This dose not change the switch possition mind.

Like my dad is in any possition to comment on somthing taking a while to finish!

Time has not been waisted though the Funfighter mustang is nearly done!

Right as you now know I fooked it up about 2mins in so now have a few jobs to do,

Reckon I can sort the thrust vectoring so thats not an issue, the rest of the bits not much drama, but any ideas what to do with this?

You cant see it from the inside as its right on the inside of a rib (no rib damage though

Global RC 50cc Raven - Assembly Thread - Pic Heavy - Page 2 IMG00239-20110606-1841

do i just splice a new bit of balsa in or do i need to renew a section of the LE? Its not gone completly through so maybe just give it abit of a doubler?

I had a similar hole in the wing of that Boomerang of mine when it rolled over a fence post on landing (some might call it an overshoot, I say I was making best use of the available runway.... all 105% of it....).

After checking and double checking there was no spar/rib damage, all i did was cut away the chewed up bits of wing skin, and glued some balsa "tongues" underneath the edges, but hanging out a bit. I then cut a patch from a bit of balsa the same thickness as the original skin, and shaped it so it would fit the hole perfectly, and rest on the tongues. Glue that down, and round the perimeter, and voila. Oh, I used a bit of lightweight filler to make sure it was nice and smooth too. Re-cover the mucked up covering, and it was good to go again. I used wood glue (white stuff, PVA maybe?) but I'm sure medium/thick cyano would do the trick quicker. Just make sure you have a good fit with parts first!

Good luck, and if you want me to do the repair, I've got a build slot free running from June 10th, to Decemeber 24th this year......

Don't forget to give the threads (internal and external) a good clean with a solvent like alcohol, acetone or petrol (without oil in!) if you are going to threadlock the bolts in this time. Otherwise, it just wont stick very well at all.

Also, check the amount of thread that is actually engaging in the standoffs too. If it is less than about 2 times the diameter of the bolt, you need a longer bolt in there!

Andy

PS, and yes that includes the angles. I love a bit of trig!
