Need help finding Spoilers
Can some one please tell me where I can get some spoilers for a 4 meter sailplane. I have been waiting for Hobby Lobby to get instock on the 14.58" Graupner spoilers, but they keep pushing the expected arrival date back.
Thank You In Advance,

make em... its easy. I assume you want gate type spoilers. Just need to make a balsa channel-box.. add a couple of 90 deg bellcranks on ply mounts and a capped balsa or ply gate. split scrap nyrod for making the slide bearings. Connect linkages... off you go. You can make gate spoilers that are lighter than the aluminum ones... and custom sized to your aircraft.
You can make the things for under $2 a set. (wish I still had my 6 ch full house sailplane to take photos of the spoilers...)

Do you have any pics of you home made ones? I was thinking the same thing but never have given it a go. My work has Heat Press aluminium that is thin as, real light too. So i was thinking of using that.
