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 .

Right crack on,

First off I cut back to good wood and exposed the rib to check for damage

Global RC 50cc Raven - Assembly Thread - Pic Heavy - Page 3 IMG00243-20110607-1858

Rib had split a bit but a dap of cyno fixed that.

Next up some masking tape to cover the hole and a biro to mark the patch

Global RC 50cc Raven - Assembly Thread - Pic Heavy - Page 3 IMG00242-20110607-1858

I then transfered the making tape to a new bit of balsa and cut out a little over size

Global RC 50cc Raven - Assembly Thread - Pic Heavy - Page 3 IMG00245-20110607-1900

A little bit of trimming had it almost right

Global RC 50cc Raven - Assembly Thread - Pic Heavy - Page 3 IMG00246-20110607-1909

I forgot to take a pic but I then added 3 little balsa tabs to support the new piece and put a doubler at the back of the LE and added a bit of balsa square oversize to the LE ready to sand back, glued the whole lot and at time of writing it looks like this

Global RC 50cc Raven - Assembly Thread - Pic Heavy - Page 3 IMG00247-20110607-1922

I reckon a little Mathews and Son lightweight filla and a wee sand and we will be there, looks abit better for real than it dose in the pic

Quite pleased with myself

And if you are putting spinners on, check the balance of those too! The one on my electric edge from yesteryear, was massively out of balance!

One very happy Mark

Game on! I might a couple of offside of yellow profilm knocking around. It is about the same shade as the yellow on my low flying wing right? I'll bring some with me tomorrow Smile

Right hopfully this thread can now come to a close, as you know it flew yesterday about 5 times and bar some fine tuning of the engine, and a bigger prop and getting to grips with the set up all is done.
