This is my protege's first attempt at his Noob Tube.
He did a great job on it and has now built another one with a 12" chord wing.
Now we both have one and as soon as he gets his nerve up we will be doing some combat streamer cutting.

exacto knife jig


Here is a link to a video I made showing a jig for holding your exact knife when cutting dollar tree foam board. It makes cutting control surfaces much easier.
I made 2 different ones, 1 for straight cuts & 1 for bevel cuts. The bevel cutter one is cut on a 60 degree angle & 35 degree angle. The 35 degree angle can be changed to whatever you want for the control hinge movement.

exacto knife jig (2 min 8 sec)

I'm going to keep on digging, but if you can conveniently point me to a good link, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks!
Did you get an answer?
I fly an axon with dx6i. Will be glad to help.

I'm away from my equipment right now, and will follow up on this when I get back to my work bench.

Thanks!
