tommy321- See post 111. I have only cut tabs on the mount (mostly) because the tabs add so much strength and are such a pain to do. There is a pic of the jigsaw and plane. The first tabs I cut were not very accurate. I got pretty good by the time I got to the last one. Anyway that is what Gorilla Glue is for.
I made a mod on the mount. I added a balsa shear piece seen in the first pic below. Really stifffens it up. Added one to the 1.0 as well.
The new spinner is here! Boy does it look great. The folks at Tru-turn cut the propellor slots to match my 16X8 to 16X12 prop selection and you can see the prop fist perfectly.
I could not resist holing out some of that 1/2" balsa on the cowling. I carefully chose areas that were completely flat so the holes should disappear with covering. I did not make one in the top though. Too chicken. It's down to about 5.6oz or so now. I could thin it but it's just not worh the effort.
