I am in the process of adding a 30 mm ducted fan to my micro ASK -21 glider. The Hyper flow fan and ammo motor have zero assembly instructions. Is the fan just a simple pressed fit on to the motor shaft or is a drop of loctite need to keep it on the shaft???

On a trip to Austria I visited a hobby shop and found this West Wings balsa glider kit. After enlarging the wing, and several mods later to establish a good CG, I scaled it up and Voila!!!! It is fast groovey,and looks real in the air.. I fly it Hi Start on the beach,No good slopes around...

I used what I had on hand to equip this little bird.The empty airframe weighs 7grams. I am not familiar with the ultra lite Plantcro type radio gear or the brick systems,but I am sure a much lighter version of the model can be built.I fear the my version will be overpowered too heavy,and difficult to fly????

I built an The EPP Eagle just after it hit the market. It flies like a dream,but it is at my summer camp in Maine.I love to fly it on the beach,the Gulls go bonkers when they see it...I decided to try a smaller light weight version of it so that I would have some thing to fly at beach here in Galveston..This is what I have come up with,and at less than a third of the cost..The ony thing I forgot to show,or mention is that the servos are flat ressesed mounted in the under side of the wing butted up againsy the rear side of the wing spar. I cut them in very carefully so that a clear strip of packing tape holds them firmly in place, and provides easy accesss for adjustments or replacements..
