This frame was part of a movie we took of the GWS pizza flying formation with the camera ship - a Scorpio Three Dee.

This is not to be coppied by other wing mfgs or pro builders as grumman would say I have a copyrite,LOL
Here is the lowdown bro.
Two materials the henries and the random spun poly weave.Notice the huge roll in the background.

The trick is to apply the either material with 90 ,but alittle liter than the standard build.
Let dry for a day ,then mix the two part fixo tropic bar top coating 50,50.

Then apply with a throwaway brush alittle thick,then blott of excess if you want w a towel.Then a micro layer will remain that is tougher ,and slightly more flexible,so it gives better durability than pu that is a little brittle.

You can leave it thicker for you heavies if you want.

Once dry you repeat on the next side.
After both sides are done give a good sanding with 180 grit.

Then coat it w a heavy coat of 90 with the nozzle sraying wide and even,let dry for 5 hrs or more, then mono it.
The mono wont stick w out the 90.

You can stick your fiber down with the coating instead of the 90 but it takes 4 to 6 hrs to tack up ,so i use the 90 to get the fabrics down prior.
Ps dont tell anyone killer,LOL
try it you will love it bro.
my buddy justin had tried the poly materail a few years ago as did i w no luck.Justin had some of the bar top coating ,and said here take it so i did,a few with it and after getn the hang of it ,i use it all the time even if it is only on the bottom and leading edges ,it makes it bullet proof.

Flights to date: 14

Sun 12Mar: Sunrise. Wind apparently 6-10 mph (increasing as I went). I seem to have the CG problem licked. Seemed to have trouble getting a lot of altitude, but no difficulty running below about 100ft. This may simply be that was not recognizing how high it was at higher elevations. I'm doing a good job of keeping track of attitude, but have difficulty telling how far away the airplane is still.

1) Probably 4-5 minutes. Rudder trim needed to go left. Post-flight inspection showed that it was indeed a tad off-center. Long flight. Did a lot of tacking into the wind - slow up-wind, rocketing down-wind runs. Landed in the weeds because I did not account for the headwind reducing the length of the landing run.
2) Longer flight (6-8 minutes). After an abortive "cartwheel" launch (still got to lean to throw), got into the air. Did a double-loop. Am now calibrating diameter of loops somewhat, not just doing a yank of the stick. Did a stall at one point, recovered nicely. Wind is getting stronger, gusting. Bit of a hard landing - canopy popped off.
3) One more flight, about 2 minutes. Ended with a perfect landing. Time for breakfast.

Fri 10Mar06: Two flights. Other people there, had them throw. Both successful flights. First flight skimmed through a puddle as I l landed.

Wed 03Mar06: First thing in the day. Son did throws. 2 flights. CG appears too far back - porpoising some. Did a loop, found it went rather quickly. Wind was rising, especially at altitude so we quit early. Good landings - but it bounces (CG problem?)
Installed magnets in wing and cockpit cover.

Sun 26Feb06: 3 flights (son doing throws). Went for some duration and altitude this time. Had trouble getting "throw" to work myself, but son did just fine. Learned to push wings back in after a harsh landing.

Fri 24Feb06: 4 flights (wife timing), all about a minute long, maiden, first successes for myself. CG was too far forward at first, but moving it back got me in the air.

Readied the thorn for DS, tossed it out over the frontside and... Yeehaa! Here is a picture just a few moments before launch at our excellent, nearly private DS site in Western Wisconsin.

OK, got sick of the weak mechanics of the DF2 so I started in on this.

Hey, Hack - Thanks for the information. I had always been using the basic entry system, and I guess RCGroups likes to have you enter your www links in a different way.

Here's the link to the home page of my humble website...

I used to fly a Heli-Boy (60) many yrs ago when collective was even hard to find! However since it was (& still is!) in my blood I was thinking about buying maybe a "BLADE CX" from A & J hobbies here in Toronto. I know flite time is directly proportional to "stick movement" & other varying factors but cud someone maybe suggest "typical flite times"? Another important thing I feel is the imortance of having at least one or even 2 extra battery packs on site but since I have no idea of charging times or whether the "newer" packs are fast charge? Are most chargers now run from 12V. & is 110V.A.C. in also available in case ur close to a source?
I've never even seen, let along flown a Coaxial machine but I think I'd be ok since flying gas units (albeit) many moons ago! Think Noah had his Ark then!

I suppose there's a million more questions but the invaluable knowledge I've gained just from joining RC Groups is totally excellent & I'd also like to say to any other members that happen by: Many thanks to you all for your professionalism, invaluable and very informative postings etc.

Thanks again guys,

Paul 09
