Foam Tac


Hi Guys
I tried to fix my thumb with Foam-Tac but all I did was stick it to my fore finger, so I'm trying something else, in my case dumb thumbs are a life long condition but I working on it. I blame my thumbs but I think it's really me....
The Mako is fixed my ego is busted, and I'll try again soon.

Foam Tac


Hi Rickochet,

You hit the nail right on the head except one must have a mind in order for it to be sick, so I'm half way there.......lol.
What I meant is to straighten it up a bit, just to have enough room to work on my plane about 16"x24" worth of space. BTW build something and post pictures so I have something to do, besides watching the temperature drop!!!! it's freezing here.

OK Eric

Here is something to look at. As much as I like to build I still enjoy throwing an occasional ARF together to just go fly. The Polaris Ultra is an out of the box build done 99% with Foam-Tac. The Ryan STA should not have required any glue but was broken in the box on arrival. Since Hobby King didn't feel the need to replace the broken fuselage I repaired it with Foam-Tac. The Polaris just had her maiden at my club field and I can hardly wait to get her to the lake.

I made a smaller version of the Stingray (the babyray) and made up a snorkeler (named Steve) to fly around with. Built both in one week thanks to Foam-Tac. Steve is based on the Skyman, free plans are at http://www.skyman.at/

Dr. John, that's a nice looking Polaris. I have the original Balsa USA North Star up in the attic, and want to get a Polaris built sometime this year.

That looks similar to the Flyguy by Otto Dieffenbach. Here is link on the flyguy. Should make a good FT project.

The Skyman is a bit simpler than the Flyguy, exposed prop and only has two control services (the legs). I plan to build a Skyman soon so I can evaluate the two designs. I'm very pleased with the Skyman as of now.

The Skyman design puts a lot of stress on the leg hinge joint, and Foam-Tac is holding up well for the hinge joint.

Did you fly the skyman yet? I had some problems with mine. It liked to fly upside down like he was doing the back stroke. let me know how you make out.

I just did a couple of test hops. I have the battery pack on the left underside of the face and 5 degrees of right thrust and down thrust built into the motor mount. The battery is a 2C 600 mAh. From other posts it seems other Skyman like to roll right, but mine flew pretty straight. It's a little gusty here today so I kept it low and close. I hope to get it painted tonight and get some more stick time tomorrow.
