Foam Tac

Hi Guys
I tried to fix my thumb with Foam-Tac but all I did was stick it to my fore finger, so I'm trying something else, in my case dumb thumbs are a life long condition but I working on it. I blame my thumbs but I think it's really me....
The Mako is fixed my ego is busted, and I'll try again soon.

A clean work bench is the sign of a sick mind.

Foam Tac

Hi Rickochet,

You hit the nail right on the head except one must have a mind in order for it to be sick, so I'm half way there.......lol.
What I meant is to straighten it up a bit, just to have enough room to work on my plane about 16"x24" worth of space. BTW build something and post pictures so I have something to do, besides watching the temperature drop!!!! it's freezing here.

OK Eric

Here is something to look at. As much as I like to build I still enjoy throwing an occasional ARF together to just go fly. The Polaris Ultra is an out of the box build done 99% with Foam-Tac. The Ryan STA should not have required any glue but was broken in the box on arrival. Since Hobby King didn't feel the need to replace the broken fuselage I repaired it with Foam-Tac. The Polaris just had her maiden at my club field and I can hardly wait to get her to the lake.

I made a smaller version of the Stingray (the babyray) and made up a snorkeler (named Steve) to fly around with. Built both in one week thanks to Foam-Tac. Steve is based on the Skyman, free plans are at http://www.skyman.at/

Dr. John, that's a nice looking Polaris. I have the original Balsa USA North Star up in the attic, and want to get a Polaris built sometime this year.

That looks similar to the Flyguy by Otto Dieffenbach. Here is link on the flyguy. Should make a good FT project.

The Skyman is a bit simpler than the Flyguy, exposed prop and only has two control services (the legs). I plan to build a Skyman soon so I can evaluate the two designs. I'm very pleased with the Skyman as of now.

The Skyman design puts a lot of stress on the leg hinge joint, and Foam-Tac is holding up well for the hinge joint.

Did you fly the skyman yet? I had some problems with mine. It liked to fly upside down like he was doing the back stroke. let me know how you make out.

I just did a couple of test hops. I have the battery pack on the left underside of the face and 5 degrees of right thrust and down thrust built into the motor mount. The battery is a 2C 600 mAh. From other posts it seems other Skyman like to roll right, but mine flew pretty straight. It's a little gusty here today so I kept it low and close. I hope to get it painted tonight and get some more stick time tomorrow.
