Maidened my Black Weasel yesterday at Mt Leguna, California. Wind speed 20-25mph.

Covered with 1.2mil "new stuff", UltraCoat tail & ailerons.

Mt Leguna is not the best maiden site, its a long way down! It flies great! No drama, nice and stable even in the booming lift.

Some fun with the black weasels

I even managed to make some DS loops, and after some practice I tried with the M60... that's another game!!

Looking forward for the new design!!!

Carbon + Kevlar nose cover

This morning finished off my black Weasel's new nose job, a carbon & kevlar cover.

I broke the plastic one after a bit of air combat and an encounter with a rock. Rather than use up the spare one I used it to make a mold. It came out great.

Would you be interested in making another? You can PM me if you like.

+1 on the mold info. I've been beating my Black Weasel up on the nose just like yours. I want something stronger than the plastic cover. It's aerodynamic but doesn't provide much protection on the nose. I've lost all my ballast twice from minor crashes. The foam is getting beat up because the plastic cover just bends. How about some pix of your mold and your layup?
TIA
Bob

We had good wind over the last couple of days so I've been busy I'll post a couple of pics of the process soon. I'm tidying up the mold and will be making a couple of minor improvements.

My Weasel and Alula collection (4 of each)
Yesterday I bought the last Alula available in Australia.. it will be a sad day when my personal supply runs out unless Dream Flight get back to building slope models.

Libelle just doesn't do it for me..

Black Weasel

Hi guys first post on here,
Guess what I found a guy here in England with 2 brand new black weasels in original boxes, managed to buy one and waiting anxiously for post today. 😂 Do you think I should buy the other one?

I too have made mold's for both the Weasel and the Alula noses. I've just used light weight glass. A friend went to last year's Weasel Fest and showed them to Michael and he liked them. My mold's are polyester gel coated with a polyester lay-up, 12 layer's of 6oz. and my part's are epoxy and glass. They work well.

That sounds like a cool alternative to try. You have any pictures?

Have you made a mold of the entire plane to try?
