Shots from an impromptu photo-op this morning with my flying buddies. Life is good in Socal.

Awesome! All you need is a woman behind the planes and it would be a great ad.

Thanks Doc! Looks good. The money does go toward his RC...his next plane will be the hopefully soon to be released EF Yak EXP 48". He has already purchased all of his own foamies.

Anyway, in addition to the servo connector clamps, he is also selling hinge sealing transparent ultracote, perfectly cut.

As many of us already know, putting these hinge seals on the aielrons seems to have a huge effect on roll rate.

The idea behind these little kool aid stands is to continue to instill a work ethic in the boy, and let him know money doesn't grow on trees.

We took the previous ad down after I ran out of ultracote, but there were many satisfied customers. The new ad is at: Precisely cut transparent ultracote hinge seals.



He is getting pretty close to being able to afford the Yak 54 full fuse when it hits the warehouse, thanks to the business of RCGroups members as well as some other money he has hustled doing odd jobs around the neighborhood, so [b]everybody order now[/url] so he doesn't have to be disappointed when they sell out.

I am pretty cofident that the ailerons will use 3" extensions. I used Xander's pre-cut heat shrink servo connector safety clamps and put those togehter. The wrap was cut to the right size and fit perfectly. I like these because it saved me a step or two and it makes for a nice, neat installation.

My understand is that all proceeds go towards young Xander's modelling projects, and that's a good reason to get behind this project. That, and these things work real good. It's what I would be using anyway, except now I don't have to cut them to size.

In the first photo you can see the servos, extension and wraps I'll be working with, and in the second, you can see how it all looks finished up.

Ok. How do I contribute? Monokote please. The neat thing about monokote is that you can probably dab on some Trim Solvent and not even need to heat up the ole iron.
