Weather and family situation, still no flights.

No, but she is changing the tires, they weigh almost a pound. Going with
David Brown, 4 1/2" treaded.

What difference does the weight of the tires make? Yours is only a static model isn't it?

Or have you been able to fly it?

Broken screw

Tried to fly with a bad-balanced prop, got so strong vibrations that the screw wich holds the motor-mount in the fuselage broke.
Anyone knows how to remove the piece of screw which stayed in the fuselage part of the motor mount?
On the Multiplex building instruction, page 18, Abb. 2, the (broken) screw is number 40, and the mount (in which the broken screw stays) is number 37.
Thanks to anyone who can help...

OK, I will tell you why it has not been flown! Brads Mom had to go to a
nursing home in May, after a fall that broke her arm, several ribs and
her nose. She had several strokes while recovering from the fall.
She will not eat the food at the home so we have to take all her meals
to her. It is about seven miles each way. Brads sisters live too far to
help. One does come a couple times a week, but she works and
can only come in the evening.

The house keeper, she does our house, one of Brads sisters house,
and Brads Moms house. She takes care of the meals so we can
go to the flying field now and then. She also takes care of Brads
Moms dog. I am allergic to dogs so we can't have the dog here.
It is a inside dog. Two pound Pomeranian named Leo.

Brads normally rides his bike 12,000+ miles a year, this year he
may do 6,000 miles. We have not had the boat out this year.
Brad has not been rowing this summer, normally two or three
times a week.

Flying is important, but not at the top of the list! We have twenty
planes that have not been flown. The EasyStar is simple, as is
the Sensei, so they get flown some when we can. The Tower
Trainer has been flown several times. We fly the Ubers in the
back yard in the morning when the wind is calm. Brad flies
his helios in the back yard as well. We have a Tiger Moth, 30"
that we have taken to the park a couple times when the wind
was calm.

We have to make arrangements a couple weeks in advance to
get to the field and then the weather is not suitable for flying.

Brads Dads last words to him, the night before he pass away,
"Take care of your mother." The trust Brad received after his
Dads death amounted to just over $30,000,000!

It is pretty well public knowledge since Brad is a board member of the bank.
Any customer at the band can get a financial statement and it shows the
holdings of the board members in percentage of the worth of the bank.

We just ain't gon'a tell you what bank!

Brad and I are very comfortable in our own right, as are his sisters.
The money is primarily to take care of his Mom. His brother in law
is the chairman of the board, his nephew is an investment counselor
at the bank. His niece is a lawyer for the Dept. of Agriculture. His
daughter is a power ball winner. That is all the family there is.
The last thing we need is more money! Taxes are eating our
shorts now.

Brad has five grand kids, they are taken care of very well.
One, 12 years old, signed a letter of intent to Auburn University
last week.

Brads sister works for a large accounting firm, they do this for others and
it is a nightmare. Her home is not suitable for someone in a wheelchair.
This is what his Dad wanted us to do. Even with in home nursing, some
one has to check every day to make sure people show up for work.
The agency here quoted us a price of $400,000 a year for in home
care. Finding a suitable house has proved nearly impossible. A state
agency has to approve the house and checks on her care on a regular
basis. Brad and I took care of her for nearly a year in her home with
aids coming in every day.
The home is much better.

Building a house in todays economy is out of the question, she most
likely will not live long enough to move in to it. She is nearly 87 years
old and we are just waiting for the next stroke.

BTW, we have a large investment in the nursing home. She gets the
very best of care. She has no idea what day it is, or what time it is.
Often she has no idea where she is. She has all the facts, but puts
them together in random order.

When Brads Dad laid out the instruction, he never figured on the eating
problem.

Brad and his sisters have spent many hours trying to do what is best.
There is no right answer.

I don't think she would eat the food at home unless Brad fixed it.
We have tried taking stuff to the home for them to fix for her, just
like we did a home but she won't eat it. Brad, or I, or the house
keeper, or sister have to be there when she eats, or she won't
eat.

BTW, you can't have just one nurse, care giver, it requires six people to
have 24 hour care. And they have to be certified by the state or come
from an agency.

Ok, good to know I just didn't want the thread to derail, so that was also a reason for the edit

6 people, wow.

Anyways good luck, hopefully the cub will get to see the air soon enough

I'm looking forward to CubCrafters maiden! When will it be man ? Also, how many hours did you spend on the build?
