@ Pannoch. I have a Flycam1 and planned to mount it with Velco or tape on the outside, but a window seat .... mmmh. Would you have a picture of the seat, I mean, how the camara is installed in the fuse?

@ Pulsery, I have isopropyl alcohol, I use that to thin the epoxy for laminating. I'll probably use that.

General problem: I just dont like how the wires from the motor to the ESC hang in the way behind the fan. Doesn't that harm the air flow and reduce the possible thrust? Has anyone come with an efficient way to route these cables?

Are you using the Assan sequencer from HK?

@jakob: There seems to a general demand to receive a how-to lesson on "how to store 2 737s plus a couple of small glow planes in a Fiat Panda".
You must have a secret most of us ignore.

Sorry I havent replied. I will take pictures of it and upload.

Hopefully tomorrow, if weather permits.

I did not get a tracking #. I comes USPS.
Hard to believe but my 737 was sent out on a Monday and it was here Friday.
Amazing.......
I didn't mean to stir the pot on the laquer thinner issue. As everyone can see,, I didn't try it on the jet. Just the foam it came in. SORRY GUYS.

Thanks again Spyro!!

Hi Cocg, It should capture the flaps and spoilers. I'll take a few trial vids to see. I may need to adjust the seat!! Lol.

Hi Jurgen, I'll post a pic of the seat today. Now I will say that the airline my plane is representing is a low cost airline so the seating is basic!!

Cheers

Here you go Jurgen,

As I said this airline is a "No Frills" airline so seating is very basic

Vic,

Am here, just waiting on stuff i ordered to arrive.

Anybody ever try 3M's polyolefin adhesion promoter? Was going to try it to see if it helps paint stick to EPO.

Not much to take pictures of right now. Just a white uncovered foam fuse
I been a bit busy at work lately. I bought the project to keep me busy through the winter.
So I'm in no real hurry. I will cover the fuse and than I will be going with the flap mod.
But as it starts to look like a jet I will be taking pictures

for you guys who aren't using the winglets on the wingtips, how did you make your regular wingtips? Was the kit supposed to include them? If so, mine didn't. If not, what would you suggest?
