Don't worry, we'll be wearing protective goggles!

Seriously though the nose might still be 7.5mm diam, I'm not sure, the fuse is fatter than it looks. But it's not an issue since this plane won't be suitable for any FAI sanctioned events.

LMFAO!!!!
FAI rules dont apply to DS and 99% of DSers are not members of clubs etc. anyway.The great thing about DS is its fast and there are no rules.We are the "1percenters" of the aeromodelling world and the FAI doesnt even recognise any of our activities.
And somehow i think the nose radius whether 7,5mm or 50mm is a moot point when your hit with a full carbon DS plane at 450mph...your going to explode either way...big nose or small.

BTW Sean....absolutely awsome project.I hope this plane takes the big one.

Actually, I think the sharper the better. Better to be impaled than exploded by a huge dull pointed nose.

Correct. I think under the circumstances, I pick quick and (relatively) less painful.

The shock wave would probably vaporize you before you even got hit!!!

Sean the deepend looks fantasic in the CAD drawings. I'm sure it will look even better when its all moulded up.

Hi Jim, since getting back from Manilla I've been catching up on work. I'll start on the tailplane plug this week.

Yes! And it's already done 400mph!!!!







Work's been pretty busy so I still haven't made a start on the tailplane mould. Hoping to pop down and make a start tonight.
