Blaster 3 being sold

I'm going to put my Blaster 3 in the For Sale soon. Would prefer to sell it locally. See the For Sail forum.

Fun only. The only (CASL) contest I'm aware of is the ALES on 3/17 in Mesa. Don't think we're doing the combined TD/ALES/F3K contests anymore, or at least until everyone's fully recovered from the SWC.

I'll try to be at the dirt field Sunday 10-12 with Dana, since that's when he has time. Avoiding the Chandler Bowl, leaving it to the strafers and dive bombers, and Lee's Panzergruppe.

Completely off topic:

Tonight about 7:20 through 7:25 the International Space Station passes overhead to the SW of Phoenix. It starts in the NW & passes right through the Orion star formation. It will be VERY bright!

It was not as bright as the last time I saw it. For comparison Venus is rated at -4.2 compared to the ISS at -3.x, a magnitude dimmer.

But is was neat seeing it cruise by the Orion belt!

It came, it went, it's gone.

Great sight.

Bob,

that was impressive, especially since the sky was very clear over Ahwatukee. Wish I could launch my DLG that high! Controls might be a tad sluggish.

When are we going to see you again at a contest?

CASL will be flying at the dirt field this morning. Hopefully, I won't be the only one with a DLG.

DLG Blade Glue

I'd like to use rubberized foam-safe CA to bond a straight G10 blade to a solid-core DLG wing. Is that the way to go, or is epoxy better? Don't care for the regular foam-safe CA - too brittle.

Epoxy, 20-minute or better.

Yours, Greg

I don't think black ca is foam safe.

I used epoxy on my Helios wing and I broke the blade free, Donnie helped build up a nice fillet of black ca after i soaked thin ca into the area until it would not take more. Now it is very strong.

Isn't the core rohacell? I thought that is okay with regular CA . Better ask Krikkens.
