Just wait a few years Brian and you'll get it from all foods

Chaos it is! I second the name Kuttara though. I call dibs on it for the plane I'll never design

Is that the vacuum it delivers unregulated Jordan?

Do you have a link for the seller? It looks so neat and small.

Yep it's unregulated. I bought two of them. The other one pulls about 2"Hg less. I think it's because the magnet on the diaphragm is mounted a little further from the coil.

Here's a link to the one I got-http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Super-Sil...-/290694518090 There are about a dozen different sellers on ebay that sell exactly the same pump.

It's nice and quiet compared with my good vac pump. Doesn't wake anyone during the night

edit- The flow rate is real low so it loses a lot of vac if the bag is leaky.

Oh man I so want one! Cheers mate. Would it be too much to ask for templates of wing, stab and fin to come with it?
Thanks again. Ill start thinking up some obnoxious paint scheme

Yep no worries. I can cut you some wing cores if you'd prefer.

That'd be nice, thanks. If it's not too much hassle. Are you doing the cores with the CNC?

No with a gravity powered cutter.

What are you gonna skin em with? I can cut for 1.5mm or 0.8mm skin.

Thanks Jordan. I'll probs go for 1mm balsa skin and 2oz S glass, so 1.5mm skin thickness sounds good.

It's where the wing goes!

I wanted to make something I could mess around with. Change wing positions, airfoils, make a TWF, etc. Same with the stab mount, there is none.

A two piece wing would definitely be doable.

I actually misspoke in the previous post as I wanted to say "One-piece and removable"
But I was too lazy to change it.
Then I realized that a two-piece would be even better.
But I was too lazy to delete the post.

Carry on.......Just ignore me.....
