Stuck up north today, though I may take a plane with me to Crystal Hot Springs with the family this afternoon.

Bumped one of those parking lot poles at old mill on an overshot landing attempt... BARELY dented the leading edge... How exactally do you steam it out?

P.S. Don't tell A.D.

Boil up a gallon or 2 of water. While that's getting ready, take off your wing and clean out your sink area. Once the water is boiling you will scoop it out and pour over the affected area sloooowwllly and angled away from your servo pockets. Since this is on the leading edge you will pour behind the leading edge and let it run over the front. Hopefully this will take care of the dent, if it doesn't you may need to fill with a mixture of epoxy and micro balloons or whatever jfinch mentioned earlier.

Is there a limit to the number of times this is effective? My dad just popped out his dents yesterday, for the second time in about 3 months.

Think that'd work on Alula foam?

Boy... 70 something degrees today while DLGing at the Chandler Bowl... Beautiful.

I picked up this nice looking V2 Stobel. This guy just gave it to me - they must grow on trees down here. Said all I have to do is just rebind the Rx. I think it'll be be a great plane.

I'm jealous of both the weather and that plane...

The blaster comes with CF pushrods (~.06") sheathed in a pretty thick teflon tube. Rather than use this I was planning to use very thin teflon tube (from tailbooms.com) and .018 stainless steel fishing leader. The leader must be a 300 series stainless 'cause it's not magnetic. I would like to install the pushrods inside the boom using magnets to hold it in position while I glue it. I think this is all kind of standard procedure, so how exactly do you get the magnets to hold? Should I look for a 400 series stainless wire or a plain steel?

I don't think there's a limit on how many times you can do this, the biggest factor is how bad the dings are.

I haven't heard of anyone using anything thinner than .020 wire. The Morris bros step up to .032 plain steel and use the magnets to hold it while gluing the housing.
