45" Stampe Sv4

I've wanted to do a serious scratchbuild for a while now, and with a salvaged Turnigy G32, I figured I have the perfect opportunity! It's a Stampe Sv4, with a 45 inch wingspan. For the plans I'm just scaling down a quarter scale plan off of Outerzone.

I've mostly finished my tail, just need to mount control horns, join the elevator, and cover. I'm not great at build logs, but I'll try and update as much as possible, in the mean time some links!

The plans: http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=4964

My electronics: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=19025

Also, I'm pretty new at this. If I mess something up, feel free to let me know!

I've joined the elevator, and as a question, should I go ahead and join the elevator and rudder to their respective stabilizers, or should I wait for covering?

Also I found this really cool site that poster prints in case you're printer is like mine and refuses to. http://www.blockposters.com/

I need to make a run to dollar tree, but in the mean time, the fuselage is coming along.

Always better to wait. Too often I have joined a horizontal split stab control surface and then realized it now has to magically pass through the vertical stab and rudder, which I had already fitted and glued in place.

Do 'dry' assemblies to check things fit, and in what order they need to be fitted before any gluing together.

I also prefer to cover control surfaces and what they mate to before hinging.

Enjoy the build.

Thanks for the information! I was thinking of coating in Monokote, but will the heat distort the foam?


So I've put the fuse on hold for the moment, I've decided I need the wings to figure out how they're going to mount. So far I've 1/4th the wings!

After much laboring I've finished the bottom wings and am working on the top. The lower wings have five degrees of dihedral, a pop can under the wing tip works fantastically.
