Are they indicated/illustrated? I didn't noticed them...I need to pay more attention!

I will take some pics for you. I have just one that is about the rotor.
I chose a withe and red livery. If i'm not wrong ther's yet a dag with the same paint scheme and a same one in light blue and withe.
The rotor will have red strips.

The paint scheme will be similar to this, probably with reversed colour.

Oh...I like that red one! Who built that?

Well, if the hang angle is not on there, someone needs to let me know!

The downthrust should be built into the plans.

Mast angle should also be built on plans. I can check my setup....have it somewhere. Everyone is different by their flying style.

Ok, downthrust and mast angle are as per building plans.
Now I just need to hang it and move what i possible to move in order to get the right hang angle.

After i have installed servos, glued the fins under the elevator, and mounted the engine, i will be ready to maiden.

Here are some pics, sorry for bad quality, but is getting dark early here and my phone hasn't got any flash light.

Well, I made the blades using the profile on the plans. Now I need to know which is the right angle to mount them on the rotor plate. Where to start from...

Sorry if I ask so many questions, but i have put my plans in a box under a box under a box...It could drive me crazy to "rescue" them, but I know I have to take them sooner or later.

Also sorry if I miss some verbs or tenses...i will do better with time. I hope.

It's all good!
Just mount those blades flat on the G-10 plate. If for some reason you are having difficulty getting them spinning up on take offs, you can shim them with a thin piece of ply on the backside. It's not a problem adding it later.

I will use orange and black stripes to make contrast and help with orientation.

I will work on this.



Also i don't like the nose the way it is.
I will add something to hide the shape.

Hallo every one!

After doing extra work at my job (I'm a Sheet Metal Worker and I do work on italian Canadair fleet) and being not able to go to put my hands on my DAG, I dedicated the today afternoon to put electronics and engine on my gyro and doing some controls on it.

My Dag hang at 15 measured on the elevator. It weight 4.3kg ready to go.

Now I need to put on it the dubro ballon tyre which are on the way to my home and to paint it.
May be I will fly it befor paint job will be done.
