No slop in the hinge lines and at the horn for the pushrod is a requirement.

The foam is Depron 6mm.
The wing struts are either 6mm or 3mm Depron laminated with balsa each side, they are very strong and very light.
Paint is cheap spray can enamel. You just need to go easy on the first couple of coats. 3 coats in all.
Equipment details posted earlier.
Plans next week.
Bristol M1-C, Second in line behind the Bulldog.
I'm very keen to do some US Planes and I like the Thomas-Morse aircraft.
A "Tommy" is certainly very likely.
Plans next week, video as soon as I can borrow a camera or get a hot shot flyer to build, fly and vid one.
I can post detail pics of any part of the model you are interested in.
I've already done some preliminary drawings of the Mustang, Spitfire, Me109, Zero and Yak 9D.
I'm still struglling with figuring out whether to put wheels or not on them.
I'll probably do them as belly landers. 3 main reasons. 1: Lighter 2: Quicker/Easier to build 3: Look better in the air.
Paint is cheap spray can enamel for Bunnings (Aussie version of Home Depot).

Watching and waiting.
Ditto everyone else on wanting a WWI-era 3D bipe. Had the Sopwith Camel kit from Wattage, one of the few empy fuses I still keep just because I like to look at it. Flew like a green turd, though (although the new thread on the plane shares great tips on how to fix the plane's problems).
Anyways, I'm a 3D addict now, so that's about all I want to fly, so I'll be watching for plans. Thanks for sharing.

The link needs to be adjustable for convenience (adjustment V or ezi-connector fitting are two common ways of achieving this)
Both ends need to be able to pivot
The link needs to be stiff enough so it won't bend too much under normal loads.
Eliminate slop in hinge
Eliminage slop in connections

plans have been held up a little. I managed to crack a rib in a sporting injury and it is a little difficult to sit at the computer.
I will have the Fokker plans done first. All I have to do is get them tiled to "letter" size.
The Fokker plan will be free and I was intending to charge a small price for the SE5A plan which will help pay for more depron to do more plans.
I tend to fly the Fokker more often than the SE5A. It is a good flying model that attracts a lot of interest. The profile fuse is very hard to pick in the air.
I'm planning some mock combat with the SE5A. the models should easily
support a streamer and it will make a change from "hovering" and "torque rolls".

I had thought about getting one of the systems (From a UK company). I have been trying to get some information on how well they actually work.
There is a lot of potential for a lot of fun here. Maybe depron combat models is the next wave after depron 3D.
