Right on, Justin. You have way more than enough cutting capacity. The chord on my wing is really narrow.

Talk to you very soon,

Mike

ps: what's the turnaround time, approximately?

DXF or vector PDF files work well or you can just specify the airfoils, chords, and washout and I can draw them with Profili Pro. I then can add wire stops, curved leading edge ramps, etc. I have formica and phenolic (phenolic costs a little more because it takes a little longer to cut and is more expensive to buy).

Turnaround time is usually a week or two. It really depends on how much is on my "honey-do" list .

Not quite sure what a servo template looks like. Do you have a picture or drawing? What material does the template have to be made from? I'll go ahead and send you a PM.

Formica would work as a servo template

That's a great idea. I bet it would cut through 1/8" ply like butter if it is cutting phenolic and Formica.

Makes hogging out foam for potting servos with a router bit a breeze.

Edge templates

Hi Justin

Wanted to know if you were thinking about setting up to cut the Edge series.

Here's the link http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1193013

I haven't followed the Edge thread very closely. Has the wing and tail planforms been published? I can draw the templates fairly quickly if I knew the airfoil, chord length, and washout angle.

Looks like mine were the templates in the pile to the right

They arrived yesterday, and look really nice. I will have to post a picture of how nice a TE finish that these leave. I ended up trimming a piece of foam off the TE that was only .007" thick

Thanks, Brian P.

Brian,

Yup...those are your templates on the right. Remind me to give you a bigger repeat customer discount next time since I think you've already ordered 4 or more sets of templates. I've lost track....

I received my templates a couple of days ago and they look fantastic! Mine might have been in that pile as well.

Can't wait to get home and do some wing cutting!

Mike
