I think it is an important fix due to the two crashes we had a few days ago when we lost control and crashed.
Thanks.

Packaging tape is fine for this application. I use the same on my 2 meter sailplane hinges without issue. The only upgrade would be to use 3M fibreglass reinforced tape or clear lamintaing film.

Yep the strapped packing tape is perfect for this, take your time getting it on there right though.

Did you paint the Sky Surfer?
If so ,does the paint chip?.I am thinking on painting the wintips and part of the fuselage.
Thanks

Used an airbrush with model paint, sanded and used alcohol to prep the areas and other than when the tips scrape no issues.

Hello, I have not seen that case but I really like how good the box works as a case. I also really like this battery. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=22906 I'm going to get another one on my next order. I am also looking to order some carbon fiber and an aileron servo replacement. I need some advice on what to get and how to install reinforcement so my wing doesnt v like that picture above. Also I think my aileron servo is bad and I would like to replace it with a micro servo like skydvjam but keep the rest of the electronics. is this possible? the plug might not match up but maybe I can solder it? I have had some of the same problems as others with the aileron plug coming loose and prop flying off. I unfortunately lost mine and already got a replacement which I applie krazy glue to the shaft first and has worked fine.

I think I want just a touch more elevator, it is already over twice stock, but it really wakes this plane up, it is a bit twitchy although expo helps that out too. I will try and take some pictures of the guts tomorrow, I also used an old gift card for the servo mounts, works great
It is a little tight getting the stock prop on there, but it is not coming off that easy either then. I was quite surprised that the inrunner BL was a direct bolt in replacement.
Hi Skydvejam,

I`m going on your modification and the motor fits great really, but the question is on the shaft long, on the inrunner is 4.8mm and the stock motor has a 7mm. In my opinion that those 2mm might be missing. Did you secure the stock prop with epoxy or CA? It will be enough? Thank you for response.

I had a bad crash with my Sky Surfer (all stock) and a couple of pieces broke off of the front of the fuselage. Wing, motor, and electronics are all fine. I want to try to repair it, and I want to use the hot water/steam method to reshape it. My question is, should I glue it back together before or after I reshape it? I would think before. Also, any suggestions on what glue to use? I have several types, including regular CA, canopy glue, Gorilla Glue, and Stik N Seal.

I also want to slow it down a little, will adding weight to the back help with that?

Thanks!

I've broken the front off twice and bent it like yours a bunch. Just bend it back the best you can and go fly. CG 30mm back from leading edge.

OK got it, thanks for the reply! I haven't done the repair yet but I think I will use the Stik N Seal; it worked great to glue together a different foam plane (EPO instead of EPP).

Wow sorry for the slow response, work has had me so busy I have not got to fly in almost a month, it is killing me. Anyways thick CA and kicker worked great for it for me at least, YMMV.

I use a E10-36 L from Hacker for my little skysurfer.
E10-36 L Use less 4 amp => install thunderbird 6amp.
AR6310 2gram RX with DMSX perfect for FPVsystem no interference and no worry about crashes.

Total weight 101 gram

Fuselage = 59 gram
Thunderbird 6amp = 4 gram
E10-36 L = 14 gram
AR6310 = 2gram
Ultra-Micro Digital Servo 1.9g / 0.04sec / 0.17kg = 4x 2gram
Turnigy nano-tech 260mah 2S 35~70C = 14 gram

The Hacker motor has 150grams punch.
45W 4300KV extra punch to fly 90° up to skyward.
And fits perfect in the motormount.
Ca glue for the folding prop is necessary.
I try it without and I saw the prop flying away.
Hacker motors are much better then made in HK junk.
Fly speed above 70kmh!!!
