Daddy Xmas has come. I promised myself not to open them before Xmas Day but I failed badly.Unlike the previous units these will need assembling and balancing.

I`m right out of 12 year old boys, and Health & Safety are knocking at my door.
I`m not looking forward to this bit.

A bit of structure lightening and tail boom laminating.
Had a visit from Rich & Gina .They insisted it was big so I let them assemble some of it to prove otherwise.
Rich has a ballencer I can borrow so I may keep all my fingers yet.

Huge! haha! or your kitchen becomes smaller..?
How many grams dou you think less making holes?

Be very carefull with balancing edfs...
I don agree with the Destruction paper!
I made with wood a stand to put the edf and over the base of the stand a used to put a glass of water (with water) and see if the water makes big waves is disbalanced...if the water dont move the edf is perfectly balanced!...
holding an edf with your hand it's very dangerous!
Merry Christmas! many Thanks!
Abrazos! y gracias!

Thanks guys for all your useful tips and warnings.I especially like the water trick. I bet you saw it in Jurassic Park JuanFe.I will use a fan balancer then run it in a test mount.Rich & Gina will be hanging on to it but don`t tell them.
Now to save an old man stress can anyone work out the jet pipe diameter for me.
80 % of the swept area which is 90 - 40 mm.Diameters.

Many thanks Raipe, what great service.
Daddy Xmas has been again whilst I was out getting my model magazines .
Thanks Rich.I knew it was you I recognised the perfume.
It`s going to take as long to put this together as will the rest of the plane.
