Hard to do on a RC model as you have to stand on the brakes
got to love BIG trexlers and flaps
Gentleman, letīs have a race .... i won !
Lots of LEDS!!!!
MPX Fun Cub with GF glassed motor canopy .....
GF tissue is barely visible ..... is goes back as far as the exhaust pipe in the photo .....
motor mounting bulkhead remains free from contact with the GF coating and is attached by the normal MPX screws .....
New paint scheme
LEDs on the 2 spars lit from within. LEDs also on leading edge at reduced voltage to prevent blindness!
All lit up and no where to go!
I'm happy with the final flap throw. NEAT fair here we come!
Best to take photo before first flight, as model may look different after maiden! Per instructions in last Nitro Planes model I built!
Green with envy as the slowest plane at the field shares a table with the fastest!
Lots of work to da, yes it is Duct tape!!
One of my 2 MPV and my beautiful 4mph leccy scooter - not b/less or lipo, yet!!
Raven wing flying at Rest and Be Thankful beauty spot
Oh, and a Bongo Bug, like a Nutball...
Ugly as sin - Me not the car!!!!
Raven wing, my other c-max MPV above the longest glen in Scotland
Yes, I know its not a FunCub - light relief build, Bipe Nutball
Stiffens up the wire
Lots of work still to do!!!
Sorry its an EZ* guys....
Scooter with 6s lipo 6000Mah, Brushless Turnigy and 300A esc....believe that and you'll believe anything!!!
2-piece 6mm ply back brace. Also has 3mm floor brace that extends almost to the air outlet duct.
Floor brace will lock down the Undercarriage Bracket and modified landing gear to support the extra weight of FPV equipment.
At a distance of 3 feet you'll never see the hand painted cut lines.
I cut a groove on the bottom for the rubber band
With the camera ...
3 mm ply floor
Fuselage foam floor recessed to accept ply floor
Fitting before gluing the sides together
Added rear landing gear strut and 3 mm ply mount.
Undercarriage bracket glued to foam belly and bolted through to the ply floor.
"Floating" rear strut
Sparkly little thing....ain't she?
"EasyLights covered with clear plastic sheeting
Some of the channel covering with Avery sticky labels.
Turnigy Multiplex CNC aluminum mount.
Here is the Turnigy Multiplex mount compared to the stock one.
Two 3 mm hex head screws and loctite hold the motor and mount together quite well.
Mount with adjusting screws installed.
Sorry its an EZ*
Wot4 comes with 3536 fitted with esc and servos
Just needs TX/RX and 2200 lipo 3S
Extra parts used-- 1/8" lite ply scraps, 6-32 x 2" nylon bolt and blind nut
Make support fit into molded "key" within h stab as shown
locate mating position on v stab so this plate will center over keyed area in h stab. Then remove foam and set plate as shown.
slice around perimeter carefully to help preserve border in next step. Angle blade slightly to keep from slicing through outer surface.
dremel tool and router for extending depth of cavity. Nice and neat.
test fit and sand plate as needed. Angle sides for good fit.
assemble parts and locate fit into position
drill hole with bit sized for 6-32 bolt. Don't go into fin yet, but use this hole to mark plate hole location in v fin.
after location determined in plate, install blind nut
glue plate and blind nut with CA or your favorite glue
mark plate location on fuse before assembly to translate hole as shown. remove foam from both sides to create channel for screw.
Assemble and glue fuse and plate as shown.
Insert tailwheel bushing piece into fuse but DO NOT GLUE! I put a piece of blenderm tape around fuse as shown for security to avoid foam splitting on impact
view showing bolt installed
top view also
bottom view. Note plate is visible. You can of course make plate narrower to hide it like in the fin, but I chose to make as wide as possible for more glue area to fuse.
Here's how it looks when you take it apart (see screw in the gap)
All parts disassembled. Ready for travel! (well, almost, I still need to do the push rods of course, but they are also easily attached or removed.
Turn your eyes away - its a SlowStick!!
Its my new Wot4 Foamie....Ģ120, servos, motor, esc fitted, no glue needed, just 5 screws and 30 minutes
35-36 1000kv mounted up in front of the firewall
Rubber band "shocks" for the gear
Not much side thrust with stock settings.
Much more downthrust with stock settings.
Ply mount attaches with wing bolts..weights 217 g with 1100 mAh 3S battery
Digital Pixel System, wide dynamic range camera with 1000 mWatt 900 mHz Tx...around 450 mAh draw....range (???)
FunCub with the new Wot4
Even my Nutballs have flaps
One box weighs 1658g, the other one 1729g, but I am not going to open them to find out the cause. ;)
Velcro hold the version 3 hat cam securely on my hat.
lite ply mounting plate with velcro strap for new battery location. I never open the hatch on my plane.
battery strapped in.
Short field approach, 50° flaps, taken with onboard Turnigy highrate 30FPS Ultra-small Digital Camera.
Overhead on approach also taken with a Turnigy highrate 30FPS Ultra-small Digital Camera by McGuyver, my spotter.
No too severe.....
...some CA glue and some fiberglass cloth reinforcing should have her back in the air in no time.
You'd have to bend your own wire, but that's easy.
it helps to brace the U/C with a rubber band to avoid prop strike.
The "Firewall" I broke.
