Molding/Bagging Threads

Hi folks,

Given that this is a new forum that is supposed to centralize a bunch of far-flung threads from different forums, why don't we make a list of the most relavant ones?

I haven't bookmarked much at work, so I'll just volunteer one that I put together last year

Thread: When a DLG pilot takes up S400 racing...
URL: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117901
Details: -Making pod and small fuse molds
-techniques for reducing flutter in bagged wings
-kevlar/carbon wing structures for s400 pylon racing

Also, I have some old webpages up at the following URL:
http://www.geocities.com/sunbirdz/20...sign_Home.html

It details a building project I did a while back when I was first learning to build with composites, so the techniques are a little crude, but they're effective.
I'd recommend the Phil Barnes bagging video for people that are interested (though I still prefer my spar method to his tube spars).

Other recommended molding URLS:

URL: http://www.gliders.dk/
Purpose: Trinitus F3X molding and general molding/bagging links

R&G in Germany has a really nice PDF usage guide with lots of info on mold building, part manufacturing and even designing composite structures based on applied loads and strengths of materials.

Plug and mold making

(My personal site)

Lots of articles here, where most designs are given complete coverage, from concept, to research, to CAD/3D, drawings, and the making of plugs, molds and parts, and finally, test flights. http://www.nextcraft.com

More general information on design and building is at http://www.nextcraft.com/rcindex.html

Two CD's available for modelers

After losing my shirt and going deeply into debt, trying to do fabrication, I'm now completely out of that part of the business. But, I've collected all that data from the past few years, and am selling two CD's for modelers.

The first one "How to do Everything", Volume One, deals with introductory CAD, related to designing and building composite model aircraft.
The second one, "CAD for Modelers", is exactly that. I try and present the material in a generic way, so that intermediate users of any CAD/3D program can use it. More info, including downloadable preview movies, is at http://www.nextcraft.com/nextcraft_products.html

Lots of photos, tips, animations, info on shaders, lighting, structural considerations, RC installation, etc..

I think these will be usefeul to CAD users with an interest in RC model design.
Take care, and happy holidays, everybody.
