RE: [RCSE] Frustrated Emerald owner


For those of you who had questions as to who I am, yes I am in a club. Been
in two actually. TMSS and SOAR. I am old enough to drive. I'm 44 and retired
from the military. I specialize in buisness technology and computer
networking. My military background is combat and intelligence photography.
I've been flying sailplanes for 10 years. The Emerald is my fourth plane. I
also have a Spirit 2M, Chrysalis and a six-servo Mystery Ship. My radio of
choice is the Stylus with glider card. The Emerald is my first molded plane,
so in that respect, I am a newbie. I'm also almost finished with my Level II
LSF. Just need contest points. Hope this answers most of the questions I
got.

Thanks to all who have already given me some ideas on how to put this plane
together. I already knew about the www.f3x.com web site. I think I've read
every article in there. I may have been misleading on my first post. I do
know what has to be done to get this bird in the air. I just need specifics
on the Emerald. But from the sounds of things, it's just trial and error. I
have a feeling this will be my first and last molded aircraft.

Wes,
Are you in a club? If so, contact a flyer in the club who has a sailplane
something like yours, and who has some experience with putting them all
together. Simple!! If not, it will be a trick for anyone to explain it for
you over this form. You really need a one on one type help, if as you say,
"I don't know what the hell, I'm doing". Are you old enough to drive? If
so, go to a city near you that has a club or someone near you who might
answer you on this forum. BTW where are you?

Just think things through (particularly linkage geometry) before cutting
anything on the plane or mixing epoxy and it will be fine. The idea of
inspecting a well-set up identical plane is a good idea too.

Went molded and never went back
