Hey Sharky,
I am replete with joy. My humble sense of humour is appreciated
So...I'm flyin Yak 6 (39") with my Axi and thinking a change of pace might be in order...
Wouldn't want to stagnate...
So what's the second best flate plate foamy out there? The Bulldog?

I've got RZMHV2, D Box (or C Box?), 3S1500's, CCPh10, 4 084's, Electron6. and lot's of materials...

Care to pick one for me or send me a drawing?

Cheers,
Grizzled and Greying (not so gracefully)

Well, the 40" Extra is pretty darned good! That plane would harrier, elevator, and wall sooooo easily.

If you're not in a hurry, I'm gonna get back on the 45" Extra, and am gonna talk with GW about a 50" or 60". He said something in the thread I did on the 40" plane about a 50". the 45" and 50" or a 60" is gonna take alot of motor. I would say at least the 2025-5300, and a Lehner setup would probably be better...eosecially on the bigger two. With the Razor setup you mentioned a 40" would be as big as I would go personally. I like alot of power though. I also build a little stronger, and not quiet as light becasue I put the things through he-- . hehe

The 2212-26 is being used at a claimed thrust of 30oz with a 11-3.8 I know some folks have been using 11-4.7 on them and the power is unreal! With every thing out in the open on a profile 3D foamie the cooling factor is a plus.
The 26 should be ran with the tanics or irates. The etechs will choke. This is from the Flex 3D EPP kit and its motor recomendation.

How do you do a neat job of gluing the xbrace to the fuse. I would think that sliding it in place would scrape off all the glue. Or can you get glue into the joint from the sides after assembly. Will a bead of hot glue hold?

Do you cut the whole wing from one piece and slide in place, once again a glue problem.

Is the CF wing brace one piece? Certainly the strongest way.

galenm,

Put it all together with no glue, then use thin foam safe CA to tack in some places, then use baking soda and thin CA to finish the job. I usually let that set up overnight then put on another bead then a depron triangle as well. Sharky did a build thread here. This post describes his gluing procedures. I've been using the BSI CA and it really is good stuff!

Here's a pic of may second Yak.

specs

Himax 2015-4100
CC p-25
etecs 3s1200
gws D gb and 12x6 prop
FFF covered to and bottom with color packing tape
3 HS-55 servos

The plan was scaled up to 106% giving the plane a 38" ws
It weights about 16 oz! I didn't think it would weight that much but it is covered top and bottom with packing tape and the fuse is tripple ply on bottom from nose to TE of wing. This and the packing tape make for a strong and heavy plane. Test flew it today. Kinda windy but flew well and climbs nicely. I'll get some video in the near future.

Axi Powered Genie

I ordered and just received my Genie fron NSP. Sal suggested the Axi package (with radial mount) since I plan to fly outside where a little additional wing loading is a benefit. Now that I realize that the motor will be turning backwards, I'm wondering if I have to do something special to adjust the timing or just let the defaults in my TMM 25 handle it.

Well, I thought I'd better post a couple of pictures since this thing is taking sooooo long to finish up. (Caution: Don't take up another hobby like airbrushing in the middle of a build!) This will be the first airplane that will maiden with as much hanger rash as an oldie! Just need to cut and hinge the ailerons and install the stuff that makes it go. Bummer is, I think my controller just crapped out.
