Sig FF 15

I finshed my SIG rubber band conversion. It is kit FF-15, one that you glue the sticks directly onto printed paper then cut out the parts.

Flew my 2X rubber conversion called a stringless kite for a couple of years with this gear so it was just time for a change.

All up weight with large 300mah batt it 1.4 oz. Only 2 quick flight due to wind, but it appears it will be just fine.

Double size Stringless Kite

This is my 2X, scratch built Stingless Kite rubber band conversion that I just took the gear out of. Nice flyer but had to have something new...

It is a very thin cellophane product from a craft store...Hobby Lobby. It comes in many colors. Cut with a sharp knife and glue edges down..once torn at all, it rips easily. I think they decorate gift baskets with it normally.

I looked on my youtube stuff, and my current computer drive. I don't see any video of it. Will look on some saved drives and post it, if there is any...just don't remember.

I ordered some of that cellophane film, and also ordered some holographic present wrap.. the holographic comes in a range of colors being colored on one side and silver on the other.. ( ebay Xmas holographic wrap)
Here is another micro build...A Nutball at 14" diameter.. with no gear it is at 20.5gms, so a target of 35-37gms for a wing loading of 1.235ozsqft

edit 6jan 2013... AUW missed the target and went to 41gms for a wing loading of just under 1.5ozsqft

edit ...the cellophane film (florists wrap from ebay) I ordered has arrived and feels very much like the holographic material... it resists being hand torn, its tough enough, but when cut it will tear along from the cut line easily

edit2 on topic tip... for poorly fitting prop savers and to help fit a gws prop use some 4mmx2mm CF tube.. on the 1.5mm motor shaft slide a bit of the 1.5mm bore heatshrink.. a perfect fit .....which then goes into the 2mm hole in the tube and the whole lot is then centralized on the motor shaft and it doesn't matter that the prop saver isn't fitting the prop as the band holds it all together nicely
