First CAD Shot
the rear of the fuselage is the cooling air outlet
Wing center section. Made from 3mm Plywood. This is the "hard point" of the wing
All Parts are "self aligning" .... so the plan.
This pic shows the ribs in position. The main spar is inserted laterally. From now on i glued everything. The alignment was really good.
the flaps are build in 2 layers, the top layer is reinforced by a pinewood inlay
The fuselage is another test item. The wave shape from the side wall gives us more gluing area and more stability
here the front section. its built in 6mm lasered layers. With this help i try to find easier the final round shape
here we can see the motor mount (8° down)
the final sanded fuselage
The rudder. Easy build like the wing. First Ribs inserted than the spars.
center is fitted to the fuselage. After this step, sanding, sanding.....
the sanded airframe
weight is around 225g
I covered just the wing and rudder with oratex. Fuselage and flaps are painted with wood primer. I covered just the wing and rudder with oratex. Fuselage and flaps are painted with wood primer. The result is "plus" 100g
The rudder with cooling air exit
