I saw the request for Build Instructions for the Topsky and I had accumulated a few from the Build Thread and put them together for myself and I might have even shared them, but cannot seem to find them so here is a centralized page that I can control and edit as needed and be able to attach the file for sharing.

MODEL: Topsky 1.0
RECEIVER: Spektrum AR6100
SERVO: 2 x Dymond D47 (Ailerons)
SERVO2: 2 x Dymond D47 (Elev/Rudder)
TRANSMITTER: Spektrum DX7
MODIFICATIONS: COG - 75-80mm at middle of wing.

I'll try and compare the latest 2 files shared and possibly add them all together into one document and re-share it.

If the file gets any larger...I'll have to upload to my server and share it from there.

I've compiled a KMZ file with a LOT of Fly Zones. I was thinking that we could all contribute to the file and make it as complete as possible. I was interested, so you might be also.

Rules....

Download the KMZ file....update with your site and describe flying conditions and details such as wind directions and best conditions.

Then, simply upload your KMZ file to the same thread.

Pay It Forward!!!

This happened to be one of my first gliders. It was pretty much indestructable. I've crashed it into the ground, into a pole and into other planes during early combat flight and it is just like a Timex....Takes a Beating and Keeps on Ticking.

I've attached a photo, although black and white, it does give an idea what this one looks like.
