The Stream fuselage looks great as is, I'm pumped to see one in person!

I guess I need to build my ship with integrated stab mount, I'm not so sure it completely solves the alignment problem?

Options are great, I don't like being forced into a mounting arrangement even though top mount push-pull or pull-spring seems to be the norm.

Hi.

Buttom mounted elevator isnīt really an option.
The pylon is preformed to fit the buttomsection of the elevator and will not fit on top. In addition the holes for mounting screws are countersunk on the top surface.

I donīt think itīs to bad though. There isnīt much work in making the pylon fit the boom.

Got some more progress done last night, but hasnīt had the time to show the pictures.

Delay, delay, delay....


Sorry guys

I should have had this plane airborne at this moment, but as a human, husbond and father, one is not allways in charge...

And........
With or indoor- freeflight nationals coming up this weekend, my son told my to go make something different to F3K.

So here we are:
My son building a P40- stick&tissue model.
This is a specific danish class with a span of 40 cm and a standart SIG plastic propellerdrive. They are good for around 2:30 min in a 9m gym..
On top of that we have prepared 7 chuckies, 2 A6īes, 2 EZB and 2 P15 (Danish again)

Weīll have a great day sunday. Just the 3 kids - daughter, son and dad.

After that itīs back to the Stream.........

Hi Guys.

So Iīm back in the shop. Need to get this plane airworthy as 2 Karismas has landed in the meantime...

Just short update on the Indoor Freeflight Nationals:
Father didnīt do that good, he was bussy helping the kids out. Tobias placed first in the A6 junior category. He had 6 really great flights the best being just under 4min. Amanda, my daughter, won the junior chuckcontest. Times where not impressing, but good enough.
We had a great day, and we are going back next year

On with the Stream.
Servos in the wing has been swapped to D60. I had to otherwise JensDK would have been all over me. (And Iīll need the D47īs for the Karismas!)
Topdrive has been completed and servos glued in place...

Pic: (Sorry, they arenīt that good this time)

Just wanted to point out something here. If you get you hobby knife in behind the small tab on your servo connection and give the wire a slight pull it will slide of of the plastic jacket. It would have allowed you to slide the heat shrink over the entire crimped on end over your solder joint and then slip them all back into the plastic servo plug.

Nice trick you pointet out there...

Guess Iīm just to lazy to dismantle the plug. This job takes about 6min to do and every thing gets hidden inside the fuse ;-)

Don't count on that working every time. Sometimes the crimped fittings themselves don't fit different connector housings that for all outward appearances look the same. The tabs themselves have to be the right length. If they are not, the crimp fitting will just slide out of the connector. Sometimes they are a tight fit but not locked in. This is a potential disaster waiting to happen. Give a tug on the wire to be sure the crimped fitting is properly seated. Do this even on the ones that are the right size. You don't want to think you have a proper connection only to find out you don't when the plane is 100' or so in the air.

Fair enough. I use a crimped fitting with matching plastic piece. What I meant was when the OP realized he had soldered the connector on but forgot the shrink wrap he could have fixed it without resoldering the joints. Soldered joints are terrible because they stiffen the wire back under the insulation and with enough flexing they break with intermittent shorts .The wire appears fine but only running with half the original contact area.

Yep. I don't like soldering wire either. I should look into getting some better crimpers and connector supplies from Hansen. That's som much easier and better.

Hey Ruben, nice to see it's about complete!

It looks like you cut the spar on the vertical... ?... not sure that's what I'm seeing. I regularly use a patch and leave the spar full length, use a couple of wraps of Kevlar thread in front of the notch on the boom and call it a day.

Looking forward to more reports!
