Build Log

Mirage Kit by Hi-Flight


Last year I picked up an old Mirage kit NIB on RCGroups. I started it in December, glued the ribs and spar on the center panel, got the spar and ribs glued on one tip panel, and then put it away. I've pulled it back out and started the build again.

I started by making laminated carbon spar caps for the center panel.

I then glued the ribs and shear webs to the center panel. And I glued the top spar cap to the shearwebs/ribs using gorilla glue so that the few gaps would be filled as the GG expanded.

This is where I left off last winter.

I wrapped the spar and glued up on tip panel.
