You know some weeks , when everything you do turn's into a pile of sheeeet ???
Well this week was NOT one of them
I worked on some top secret stuff
Built some nice gizmo's
Got some great help from spencer , working on perfect DS weight for the G2m , laps size , lap times
Picked up the re-machined 2m moulds nice
And built the best GIZLITE in the world..... Well... Maybe that's over the top , BUT it sure is pretty Fin good mates
It proved a point.. I think and hope... That my problem all along was mould flex.
This was made out of a new DIY corian mould , clamped perfect , LE seam nice and tight , TE that can cut tomato's.... +. Wait for it..
The new improved Gizlite will have wipers
It has occurred to me I have been under doing the gizlites , and probably going against the philosophy of what we are trying to achieve.... Low drag , fast flying , fun , plank..... And I don't think it has been as good as it can be. Purely due to trying to save a few $$$ for people , at a cost of performance. Even though they still rip the slope up... There always can be improvements.
SO..... After taking in some comments , suggestions , peoples opinions , small problems with gizlites , and my own observations , list of improvements was established as I want it to be going in the direction of its brother GIZMO , built as clean as practical.
The new generation gizlites will have wipers also have TE shear webs faces and control shear web faces. This will stop and delimitation in these area's.
I have done this by slicing the the core forward and aft the hinge line and facing the TE and the LE of the control surface with 100g glass. So after cutting the controls and doing the hinge line , the centre piece of foam is removed and it leaves me a nice gap for where the wiper will travel. Also it has a proper canpoy , servo's will be mounted like the gizmo.. Due to it makes stuff all difference having them further forward , and also giving it a stronger nose area.
So all in all , small improvements just to make is more aerodynamic to give it the respect it deserves with a price matching the gizmo

Thanks guys. It was such a great feeling finally getting them back on track. I cut control's late last night. I was able to flick the foam out with a small screw driver.
Leaving a perfect gap for the wiper ( which I'll do today). Both Tee and control webs have worked perfect. And control's are much stiffer with very little flex ( like a gizmo). This should relate to better performance and feel. I love it when a plan comes together.
I've got to get me some of that carboline and try an ultra lite giz for sand dune type flyin
