So we tried dipping a second Taranis Case. This one turned out even better... and i just finished putting the front plate on. I have the back plate too, but wasn't sure how to get the antenna off without unsoldering it from the board.

Clancy Aviation Big B with ailerons % Foot Wingspan.

Axi 2826/10 motor, good up to 5S
E-Flite 60 amp esc
JR digital servos all around

Wing has a few small patches. Overall condition 8 out of 10 cosmetically.

A rare find, and a fantastic flier too. A read head turner at the field.

After installing the radio and pushrods, I applied a coat of dope to the inside of the fuselage.

Then I took yet another detour to build a mobile for my son, which my daughter promptly took possession of. Looks like I'll have to make another one quickly.

Another one lost to the weather. Didn't bother staying out all morning, this time. The national weather service said it began at midnight. In reality, the eclipse began at 11pm. Totality began at midnight.

Heres some more I ran across.. I forgot I took so many.. maybe the "adult beverages" had something to do with it.. haha Great way to relax though..

Pic 1.. Careful use of the supplied die-crunched dihedral guage will make easy work of getting a good joint of the inboard/outboard panels.. that and a bit of patience. The reinforcment wires were harder then anything else.. but I think I've learned something in the 28yrs since I built the last one..

Pic 2.. The "dry fit".. very satisfied at this point. Of course theres no epoxy yet.. but spending some time studying and fitting pays off...

Pic 3.. Very satisfied.. its looking familiar now.

Pic 4.. Heres the money shot... glue is on.. clamps are on.. weights are on.. yes phone books, catalogs, etc.. You know.. that hi-tech stuff that keeps the components stable and true.

Starting the build on NB #2, 14", learned a lot from the first build. This time I'm going to remove the paper to save weight and cover with colored packing tape for strength. I hope to be able to fly this one in a small area around the house. Check out the pics. all comments welcome. Lane

In doing the leading-edge, starting with square stock, installed on ribs.. I mark the center of the finished edge.. as well as the taper. The outboard panel leading and trailing edge both have a double-taper..

The trailing edge double taper is achieved by cutting the front face(rib side) of the stock.. that will create the natural taper needed.

I like to lightly scribe the center of the finish edge... with a pencil.. that way when I'm shaping it makes a perfect target and guide.. as the edge is where I want it.. its straight and the mark is the last thing to go.. and even at that, I like to leave a "ghost line" very very faint.. you probably would'nt ever see it when done.. if you didn't know it was there.... and then I have somewhat of a guide covering... and the covering hides it perfectly.... I've done this for many years when shaping ... works really for many applications.

The leading edge was installed as full size stock as depicted.. then using the template on the plans.. and basically an eye, the finished shape is drawn on both ends of stock.. pics 1 and 2, then the center of the finished edge is marked... at this time.. draw the outboard front-edge taper.. its a guide is all.. and

I have been using the Spectrum DX6i for a while now, and wanted to be able to kill the throttle on a motor so that no minor accidents occur when working on planes or at the field when flying.

The DX6i as we know only has a throttle cut button that you have to keep depressed to cut the motor, which in hindsight does work. but I think it was mainly designed for Gas engines not Electric motors.

So I searched on YouTube and found a video of how to remove the old throttle cut button, and then add in a switch.

1. Remove the back cover, and unplug the electronics from the main board, which then you can fully remove the rear casing.

2. Locate the Throttle cut switch and unscrew it, by removing the 2 screws. Undersold the 2 wires and completely remove the old button.

3. This will leave 2 screw posts that you have to remove for the switch to fit. You can either do it with a dremel tool, or do it as i did with a pair of wire cutters ( no one is going to see it, so they cant comment on how rough it looks).

4. Once the posts are removed, check that the new switch will sit properly. Once you are happy with its seating, solder the 2 wires onto the switch.

5. Place the switch into the hole, and then secure it into position with the front nut.

6. Temporarily attach the electronics and rear casing and test that the switch is working correctly.

"Voila" you now have a throttle cut switch, instead of a throttle cut button.

I saw a video on youtube were a guy used beacon fabri-tack,i ran out to price and buy it to try it.It work just like foam tack, it held hinges strong and worked great for the whole plane,at half the price and subtracting shipping cost and getting 4 oz instead of 2 oz. it's a big $ saver.elaine's glue from walmart for 2$ is even better,
