My CAD kung foo is very weak.

I have the fuse layout done and the elev/stab layout
done. I am still working on the wing layout detail.

I hope to get together with CAD guru this weekend
and complete the plans.

I just got a copy of Adobe Acrobat 5. I hope this software will
convert a DWG file to PDF tile format.

But since you are an accomplished builder -

The model has 33" wingspan. Uses blu core FFF for the ribs
with onion skin removed. The fuse dimensions are similar
to the SU31 just modified to look like a sorta CAP 232 fuse.
Just like the tail group of the CAP.

Hershey bar wing layout. Covered w/solite.

I am work right now - gotta go!!!

Yea - Paul is my CAD guru. I'm going to try
and call him again tonight and see if we can get
the file to transfer from his PC to Mine.

Still working out some of the wing details.

Just trying to make it so it is usable.

Still not having any success with the PDF tile
print out of full scale yet.

Show off Now that's a sweet flying plane! You definitely have some skills. The music was great through my sound card, you must have recorded at a high bit rate.

I gota get one of those for my street. Let us know when plans or even kits are available. Can you list the specs?

Sorry - but I can't take credit for the excellent
flying skills in the video.

The guy flying is Darren Brooks. I was the camera man.
We used Darren's camera and Pinnacle Studio
Movie making software. The software is kicka**

But thanks for the compliment.
We plan on making another movie - maybe not so long
next time.
