thanks for the info lake flyer !
i`ll have to keep that in mind... about the step position, not much i can do that`s what the plans said. There`s quite a few folks building these here in europe and it seems they are all flying fine as is... not that that means it`s right
anyway i got some more stuff done..
Glued the Tip floats and cut the wing ! I stopped after gluing the ribs on to get a real good bond before starting to fold the wing. I used 6mm depron for the ribs instead of the 3mm as per the plans. i think that`s a good idea... gives a lot more area for the glue to hold on.
I put all the bits and pieces as well as all the radio gear and the scale to see if i`m still within the weight prediction. So far with a 3 Cell 900mAh Lipo i`m at exactly 250g
So i guess when everything is finished i`ll have a AUW of about 270g
