My new DLG pod
finished my Mold for my DLG pod, still working on the layup schedule with 1 full ply 3/4 glass 2 full plys 5oz. Kevlar 1 Ren. of 6 oz carbon for wing and boom area the finis ed wt. is 28 grams and is stronger than some 2-M fuses Ive seen.
the boom plugs over the pod like my unlim. pod.
I will try some other layups,looking for the best strength to Wt. ratio.
Going to use Kevlar for the pod cover so its completely 2.4 friendly.
Had someone ask about wing mounting,Im planning on bolting down the
wing like the blaster 1 , but with very little work you could make the front
of the wing plug in with pins like the Taboo and bolt the back down.
Goals ,what I wanted from this pod
1- Strong , If you break this pod ,the rest of the plane shouldn't be flyable.
2- Boom mounting, If I break the boom I did not want to have to gut the fuse to replace it.
3- Wing saddle large enough to mount both front and back wing bolts into (see # 2 )
4- Nose long enough to balance with lipo batt. pack.
5- Room inside the pod for up to 4 servos, Ram 3 and ballast
6- I'm going to be the one laying up the pods, how hard do I want it to be.
I really like the looks of some of the other pods I've seen , but to have made
it look more stylish I would have had to cut into some of the goals I set for it.
