The pair of dihedral braces for a Bird of Time wing


The Bird of Time glider has a pair of dihedral braces between the center section and both outboard panels. Does anybody have a pair of these for sale or know where I could get a pair fabricated....? The manufacturer wants to either sell me a whole wing or a whole kit!

Purchased some parts for the BOT a couple of years ago and you can still order individual parts: http://www.dynaflite.com/parts/gpma0570pl.html.

However, the balsa parts I received were hard and heavy and just useable as patterns for cutting out new parts from more suitable balsa. The plywood polyhedral braces should be OK, however, there is that shipping charge of $8.99 per order.

Definitely less costly to download the page of the BOT manual that has the die cut patterns to get the proper angle of the braces and cut the ply pieces yourself.
Hope this helps.

Thank you....


....but I had tried to buy the parts from Dynaflite already. They said the polyhedral braces were not available by themselves even though their webpage makes it appear as if they are.

According the the manual, the ply die cut sheet BDTMW15 will have two polyhedral braces, two small LE braces, and a fuselage doubler. Did you order using that part ID?

Did not realize till now that you have the ARF Bird of Time. Too bad they don't sell those parts separately.

Here's a scan


I just traced my ARF wing joiners. I put this plane together several years ago and my recollection is that some sanding was required to get them to fit in the wings. The difference in height is small between the two ends of each joiner but the larger end does not fit in the wing tip section of either side.
