Starting a new build..
I thought I would bring back the old Roswell Flyer.
And do it up right.
I am building the flyer from oak and ash wood.
It will be pretty much a standard flyer.
See next post....

Well, I had to figure a way to build my wire bus for the Roswell.
Here is what I came up with.
This is just a prototype.
I will be doing it in black delrin.
It will be thinner too!
It will hold up to 16 wire on top (positive) and bottom. (negative).
I will be getting a nylon wingnut, too!
Of course, I will not be using all the wires.
Just use what I need.
Onto the next step...

Well, I made the 4 arms.
They are made from ash.
Everything is going together, good.
Now, I have to get the electronics together.
Finish and sand all the wood.
I will do it in a tung oil.
Hopefully, I should have the electronics done by next week.
Watch for updates.

I have one of the goofy vertibird things too!
Dragancopter, I believe.
Just finished my landing gear.
Will post pictures tomorrow.
This is kinda just a hobby I do.
Keep watching my blog, I will try to update as I go.
I have to put a Finish on the frame now..
That will probably take a week or so.
Then the motors, electronics, and should
be ready to fly.
Thanks for stopping by.

1st coat of Bush oil.
I will coat it with about 2 more coats, then glue it all together.
After it is glued and coated a few more times, I will proceed onto the electronics.

Here is the final wire harness bus.
It is skinnier then the white one.
I think it should work good.
Still waiting for the Oil finish on the frame to dry.
Will put about 4 coats on.

I was going to use a plastic top from a Icee cup for the cover/dome of my quad.
Well, that did not look just quite right, so I decided to make a wooden one.
I made this one from Oak, Ash and the red stripe is Pauduk.
I designed the dome in a 3D program and cut it out with my CNC machine.
The dome is made from 10 layers of wood.
I think it will work just fine..
To be continued....

Here is the final dome.
It is made from Oak, Ash, and Padauk.
I inlaid the black alien with epoxy.
Just colored the epoxy with some acrylic paint.
