I've recently been working on two PSS planes and forgot that I know little about hinging...Oh sure I can get them on but they don't have the sparkle and shine I want to produce.
The perfect live hinge...how hard could it be. Turns out to be very elusive for me.
My main problem is the kevlar always makes a bump under the glass and I have to do several sessions of sand and fill....which I don't like to do. And putting a layer of kevlar on the whole wing/tail sounds overkill.
Also I always seem to end up with some fuzz on the hinge line. Dang if I could just see a video on this and or what supplies I should by to make this problem go away.
Some one gave me some peel ply but I gotta imagine its going to do the same thing.
This is simple but rather time consuming and not very pretty.
For Foamies and light park flyers...not carbon winged beauties
I gave up on this after mixed results..had problems doing it and had problems with surviving landings
Frustrated right now about my limited skills and experience.
